    lol.

    Isnt that why we just play video games instead of going to real wars? so we dont die but still get all the fun?

    Wow. Thats a good idea. Cant we just settle issues using video games instead of real wars? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But then we'd just "respawn" over and over. [​IMG]

    She says that we can excuse World War II-based games simply because it's in the past..
    Can you imagine being someone who has lost a grandfather or any other loved one during those times?

    I've played a game where I capture defenseless animals and pit them against each other in battles just so I can gain recognition in the community.

    Does this mean I will do it in real life? Probably not.

    I'm not surprised, there's always people like this. Arguing with false knowledge and such.

    Wonderful! More hate for video games.

    I wonder what goes through the developers' minds, though. They MUST realize that basically WHATEVER they do will be shot down.

    If you think your kid is young enough to be influenced by it then he/she isnt old enough to play it on the otherhand most children should know right from wrong and if they become bad later in life its because they are bad or your a bad parent

    I can understand where she's coming from. If I had lost a loved one (in any situation) and then a company comes out with a game revolving around that situation, I'd be raging against it too.

    A huge WTF though for "Fox & Friends" actually being calm and logical in its approach. Did not see that coming.

    What Jan said. It's just a video game, I would play it, and I would like it. Video games become bad when someone underage, or someone with a pre-existing medical condition (See: a psychopath) plays.

    Guess these people never played Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians or Japs and Commandos as kids. Any game based around conflict needs someone to play as the 'bad' guys,

    I can't wait until some major event involving obsessive-compulsive behavior and treating mentally stimulated yet repetitive behavior, so Fox can say it first started when Tetris was created.

    That was the idea. (;

    I'm sure this particular matter is depicting a present, ongoing event.
    If the whole Afghan / Taliban matter was over with years ago, I doubt this would even be an issue.
