I'm just about had enough of hearing stories about video games are the "culprit of damaging society" and that they are the reason teenagers often decide to commit mass murder these days. Excuse me, "Captain Ill informed" but i object to your moronic claims.
I often find phrases along these lines are popular amongst parents and politicians; as its definitely more convienient to place blame on the gaming industry for societies problems rather than actually trying to address the problems head on.
In my experience i find that more often than not its the parents and politicians that cause the most problems in society rather than the video games that they repeatedly chastise. There you go, my hat is in the ring and my opinion is set.
Not that i'm saying that I'm an expert and that i have the ultimate solution to the worlds woes, but i do know for a fact that playing this childish "blame the game" attitude isn't going to solve anything. So Parents and Politicians I do have a few small ideas you may want to write down.
Ill start off with the Westminster and White House Posse first: Whats wrong with actually trying to create fair government legislation for the gaming community? Maybe laws could be brought in to prevent companies from overcharging for their product, that would be good start and shows you are interested in protecting the rights of consumers. Just a thought....
Now for the estranged Family unit: Whats wrong with actually putting effort into raising your own offspring? Perhaps purchasing a copy of Manhunt 2 for your 12 year old child isn't in your best interest and it would be much better if you actually attempted to bond with your kids, organise a constructive family outing and spend quality time in each others company.
Is that too much to ask? I'm guessing so.
