[Kotaku] (video) Kids who don't play games are at risk - Page 3

post #21 of 47
I think that Games are just trigger for shooting in schools ... the shooting could happen later when something else triggers it. ( The mental **** in mental kids with weapons )

Games have positive and negative sides ... so yeah.
I play games cause I am bored.

Very interesting discussion on it, finally some defense for games.
I saw this today on G4.. Interesting theory that has been proven correct. The name of the book they have out is called Grand Theft Childhood

this whole idea is so "surfaced" , to me it's all nothing but media with a purpose, I dunno what it is but it's definately not non-beneficial

everyone have different background, and they also have different personality, oh and most of all, each one of us are built with different genes, some stuff in life, u simply just can't study them, each single one of us if u wish to understand u simply need to study specifically, there's no "tend to be like that cause of something" that is simply not a fair study now is it.

what if people argue "Contra is the reason of War" ?? ???? ??? ????????
what game makers promotes is what we need to watch out with. in real life, I never seen any CSS player (tho i don't play) that's violent have anything to do with CSS, but from what i see they are violent (some of them reall are) are all because of their background, being poor, stresses over everyday living when it's hard, and most, most most of all
would famous "Gangster Crazy, Pop Culture Must, Cash>anything Medias"

don't blame the video games, better yet, don't even talk about it, leave it along

I don't know why people keep debating the whole videogame thing, I think the internet is far more dangerous than computer games to young people.

Although in the past, people never had access to violent games such as today, and people have become desensitised to violence and humour. There will obviously be an effect of games on society that there wasn't before, which will inevitably have some positive and some negative aspects, but I don't think it's creating mass murderers.

Why were you such an angry kid? Couldn't you just use your intelligence and think, "Hold on, being a trouble-maker or fighting all the time is wrong....I should really try to calm down and stop it?"

You couldn't think that by yourself no? You needed video games to teach you that yeah? Or hold on.....are you saying it's because you PLAY the video games now that you don't get into fights all the time? In which case if you ever stop playing them......then you're gonna start tickin' like a time-bomb?

I get the feeling you're saying you are involved in fights all the time, and now the only thing stopping THAT behaviour from continuing is the fact that you're able to play video games.

Either way, it's the comments of an ignorant, immature child who has little or no grasp of social order.

It really makes me laugh to see such naive comments.

I don't need video games to vent anger in my life......I tend to steer towards minimising ANGER and FRUSTRATION in my life....I find it works better.
Imagine I NEEDED to play video games to vent violent frustration out and then I stopped and decided I needed to knock the ***** out of every video game playing child I come across? I have a feeling you'd be one of the first to label me a nutter with psychological problems. Which would be correct.

What defense would I have with using the fact I couldn't partake in an artificially created past-time to vent my anger....so I simply had to vent it in a violent manner? I'd have NO DEFENCE since thats a retarded excuse.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is bollox. Kids these days are treated like adults, when they shouldn't be.

I'd like to ask the question, "What is wrong with society these days that CHILDREN need to vent anger and frustration?"

"If they don't play violent games to vent their anger, then sports is a must.....and if they don't get to vent anger and frustration on those situations then it'll just build up until they do something violent!"

What on earth is going on here, why the hell do children have so much anger/frustration to release?

I'd like to see a complete ban on children playing ANY form of video game based entertainment. They need to be placed back in a time where they use they're own imagination and are given the chance to grow-up without the NEED for being a socially accepted video game blasting anger venting CHILD.

Perhaps then we'd see a world where children are children and adults are adults and the two groups don't get so confused.

Coming from someone who was made fun of and degraded on a daily basis and had a lot of anger built up as a young teenager, I'll throw my two cents in. I couldn't cope with it, resulting in a lot of anger and other things that aren't really important now. I would just go home and sit on my PS2 either playing GTA3 or Manhunt and wasting time on killing sprees or playing the same mission over and over to see how many times I could mutilate the same guy different ways.

I've had many thoughts of a lot of things I could do to hurt myself and/or others, but through time and just using games as a way to escape and **** reality, it subsided. I'm not saying "Omg video games saved my life!". No, it helped. Would you rather see some kid sitting at home cutting his throat, going to school with a steak knife and stabbing people, or wasting time on a "hyper-realistic murder simulator killing hundreds of people in 'training'"?

This makes me laugh...it really does. If Childeren were taught a little self control in the first place then I gaurentee there would not be so much trouble on the streets.

Jeez, the answer is so simple yet everyone runs around like headless chickens going ''OH NOES THE WORLD IS GOING MAD..WHAT DO WE DO ?'
post #30 of 47
nah, society doesn't get advanced, they only "get used to"

most people will stay that way til someone so sick and tired of it and jump out to speak out.
why don't i do it since i mention it>?? well there are much to lose right now...


To Topic : Emotional issues between people, and family, bills, dealing with ppl at work, hearing terrible news everyday on people with anger, it doesn't make me any less want to saperate them when i get to have my free time, that i just forget about all these things and enjoy my poor-getting-bashed-everyday-since-C2D athlon x2, logic guys,
most people thinks it's right to do what one feel, well since u don't live by urself, there are people, everything u do effects others, so that "feeling" can effect others small as their moods, feeling annoyed by u or sacred of you (ie. some bum asks some women for spare change aggressively) when u effecting others and u consider this humanity thingy, then MORAL need to put in consideration, which self control comes in.

I am originally from Taiwan and I served the military, also education growing were a lot of diciplins, i learn to fear and respect, and uses logic toget my way through, but the sucess of the western society, now the whole damx world is trying to make every living thing all freedom, which when all parent say to their kids" you dunno what u want "

btw, really hate that time limitation on log in idle,
