indeed.


Those guys own ass. It's good to finally see someone giving games a chance.

great find man, the only problem is that most of the stupid parents that think otherwise, probably wont ever see this, or read the book.

Third, You are the only one freaking out here. No one else.

It seems you are the only one on this thread that needs to grow up, not marin, not anyone else. Only you.

You say you minimize your anger and fustration. No matter how much you "minimize" them, you will always reach a peak and burst. Its people like you that have mid life crisis in their 40s because they never learned how to vent correctly in their younger years.

Maybe you are so angry because you don't actually play violent video games? It supports what they are trying to say, does it not?

Oh they said there's less violence did they.....well excuse me....it must simply all be true. They polled 1800 young adults and come up with that assumption, then you spoon it up and take it as gospel.

No, I'm on a comp/overclocking forum which since it's formation has ADDED gaming sections for anyone willing to DISCUSS them. Not ONLY for people to WORSHIP games. I think you need to get your facts straight before you wade in. You may have trouble seperating the two but computers are not only for VIDEO GAMES. I know you most probably think they are but that's another story.

Freaking out? A few words in bold type and I'm FREAKING OUT????
No that's your kiddy mind over-exaggerating again because you're acting like a little drama queen.

Because I don't believe little wasters like you should be allowed to use video games as a crutch means I need to grow up? No it means I've hurt your immature feelings and you want to offend me so you retort with garbage like that. Perhaps if you hadn't devoted your life to playing video games you'd have developed the ability to hear criticism without needing to run to the nearest video game in order to deal with it.

Yeah like the hospitals and clinics are full of 40+yr old people who can't vent their frustrations

Quote:

No, I've played a whole host of video games including FEAR, BF2, CRYSIS, LFS, RFACTOR, LOST PLANET, TDU, PROJECT TORQUE, STALKER the list goes on and on. Where some of those games may have killing in them they're hardly grossly violent. In the same way space invaders involves killing all the little aliens by blasting their ships off the screen. Now your gonna say stabbing someone in the face in manhunt 2 whilst suffocating them with a plastic bag and watching blood spurt from the wounds is akin to shooting someione in BF2 with a sniper rifle once, from 800yds away?

Like I said, I can deal with anger by NOT allowing things to anger me so easily. I don't get angry then fail to vent it.......I have none to vent Can you comprehend that? I'm bottling NOTHING up. What you experience as ANGER is actually described by adults as a TANTRUM. I've seen young children almost faint because you deny them an extra sweet at the end of the day......or turn blue in ther face with frustration at not getting their own way. Those children (like you) don't need to vent that frustration because they need to be taught how to be patient or whatever.

I have 4 brother and 4 sisters......they have a host of kids between them and I have 5 aged between 3yrs and 17yrs. Not one of them have sat playing violent stupid mindless games and yet NONE of them have social problems....none of them get into trouble repeatedly at school for anything other than being a little disruptive (which all children are since it's a childish thing to do).
