Doom III

I was wondering, do you guys think the parents who have never spoken to there kids organizations will raise a fuss?

Cause the orig dooms have basicly become poster childs for violent games that supposedly cause teen violence

I'm sorry if I sound a bit dumb but.... I couldn't really understand what your post said. Could you rephrase it and help us mere mortals out.

The thing is, we use the game as a release, if I'm a bit pent up I go and play CS, or MOH, or maybe a bit SOF (I apologise for the gratuitous use of abbreviations). Unfortunately some people feel the need to carry this violence into the real world. The world will always be spoilt by the minority unfortunately.
The debate over violence in games has been going on pretty much ever since wolfenstein and doom, its one thats unlikely to be resolved any time soon. You only have to look at the sales of violent games such as doom to realise that even if you took all the people that have commited murders and have an interest in games its a very small proportion of its overall sales.
Testing is a problem as well because its very hard to test for something making you more violent, other than playing a violent game for a few hours and then seeing if you curse a lot more or start hitting things I cant think of a decent test.
I think to blame any one thing for the shooting incidents at american schools is very ignorant. It was most likely a combination of not coping in a competitive school enviroment, half assed parenting, easy access to guns and possibly to some extent violent games. Taking away just one of these things will not solve it, many things need changing, I think the biggest one is the half assed parenting.
The upbringing a child has greatly determines what he/she will be like as an adult. If the child is brought up in a family it feels happy and loved then it stands a better chance of becoming a well rounded person. I think my parents are great, they make mistakes sometimes, but most of the time they are right and that has helped me immensely because it gives me something to judge my actions by, i.e teaching me right and wrong. Helping me decide what kind of perosn I want to be.
Okay I'm rambling and ranting now so I'm gonna stop.

I'm smart enough to realize and so are my two girls. I EXPLAIN that's "it's ONLY a game!"

I ONLY feel sorry for the dumb kids out there, and the EVEN DUMBER parents.

ahahah now that i think of it these parents that ***** about stuff like this are basicly calling there kids dumb.
cause anyone with half a brian could not be effected by one single thing in the entertainment industry to actually change them to the point that there a serial killer.

i actually cursed and punched holes in the walls a lot before i even knew what a computer was
i dont punch holes in the walls anymore, but i "curse" a lot ****ing more
its just dumb to believe a word can be bad.

Oooh didnt see this!

My view is this, people have a basic tendancy towards violence
Therefore, if violent tendancies are there, wouldnt venting that pent up rage on a collection of pixels on a screen be better than that old man who looked at you funny?

People who do go around shooting people would do so without any prompting from games, remember before that it was TV? and probably before that comics, and before that? OH MY GOD utopia no violence? No, violence is a part of what we are. Most people can control it, a few who cant probably could if they had something to let it out at like a computer game, a few will still go nuts and shoot their schoolmates no matter what.

gladiators thats what we need (holds the the theorm: if you dont know what to do copy the romans which we seem to do/have done a lot esp the hellenic part)

since no levithan in a free society (except the one in the matrix) could possibly stop things like school shootings , etc there have to be other outlets for violence OR simply physical energy we all sit around too much (i think, and esp me). the other thing is that we dont have enough social interaction and for childern fighting (which is generally harmless) has become completely taboo (i'm not a violent person at all but for protecting myself ended up spending a week in on-campus detention for the whole school day) so certian people end up hating everyone (due to no social interactions) and having no outlets or alternatives when they are stressed (ie bullying). then computer games can futher compound the problem for some people (some people are just susceptible to the game doom...:P ) by distorting their reality....
