not news

So, Good Morning America feels like they need to spread information on a report about violent video games... again...

This time, the report had NO solid evidence. It was filled with "May"s and "Could"s. your kids may become more violent, this could lead to bad behavior.

For gawd's sake if the game is rated M don't let a KID play it! Its that frikken easy!

Its so stupid that this arguement hasn't gone away. Kids aren't the only ones playing games.

ah well...

I am certain the Rocky Horror Picture Show did more damage to me as a very young one than the Hellraiser series. lol

hence why I haven't seen Rocky Horror Picture Show in my life...

on the other hand I believe I was probably rather young when I saw Hellraiser the first time...

Again
Seriously, people need to stop crying about what games are made and start monitoring what their kids play.

My professor is the same way. I just want to shake her. I've had her twice now and every time that she lectures about how video games are anti-educational she uses Grand Theft Auto as her example. EVERY TIME! I just want to scream, there are other games out there. Not every video game is about stealing cars and running over hoes! It pisses me off when people, supposedly educated people, cannot open their minds enough to think that while some people develop thoughts and ideas from reading, others can learn a thing or two from video games.

no one wants to recognize the fact that video games helped me become a better reader at a younger age. RPGs made you read! I was reading big words and complicated words, understanding them because I was playing RPGs since a young age.

Of course I didn't recognize I was ahead of the reading curve until much later, but its true.

Lets not forget Hand eye cordination...
Puzzle solving...
Critical Thinking...
Now with online play, teamwork...

Ugh...
