Walmart removes violent video game ads after shootings but continues to sell guns

This bollocks really pisses me off, it's the same hackneyed argument that's been used for years despite the wealth of evidence to the contrary. Even if you just look at the figures comparing the amount of people who play 'violent' video games to the number of shootings supposedly caused by them and you end up with it being something close to 0.0001% of gamers. Hell if that isn't enough for you compare China, Japan and South Korea to America, as that those three countries have the largest concentration of gamers globally the news should be full of similar events happening there and yet there is nothing.  Hell according to these idiots I should have already gone on the rampage given that over the last 30 odd years I've played a hell of a lot of FPS games including Doom, Wolfenstein, Fallout, COD, Medal of Honour, Manhunt et al. It's just easier to blame the games industry rather than look at more uncomfortable factors like poor parenting or a lack of resources for psychological assessment and treatment.

Look it's simple

Playing Kerbal Space Station doesn't turn you into a NASA engineer
Playing Farming Simulator doesn't turn you into a farmer
Playing Surgeon Simulator, Life & Death etc doesnt turn you into a doctor
Playing shooters doesn't turn you into a gun wielding psycho

In all honesty if you have a rig that will run it and you enjoyed the original then Doom 2016 is well worth a go  :thumbsup:

At the moment I'm on a historical kick playing (or trying to) Kindgom Come Deliverance. At least I will be once I work out how to get away from the irritating arsehole on horseback that keeps killing me with a bow and arrow at the start when my settlement is attacked.  cussing:

Seeing as you have diagnosed yourself here is a second opinion. There is nothing wrong with you other than being a pathetic attention seeking areshole.  Banghead
