    Would you? I'm not just talking about violence in video games. I'm talking about violence, in your Province/state/country.. etc etc.

    In my opinion. YES I would.

    Would you?

    If violence was banned, i'd punch the guy who banned it in the face. But seeing as violence is part of every animals natural behaviour (showing dominance, claiming land or just fighting off love rivals) I might just punch the OP in the face for asking one of the stupidest questions i've ever had the displeasure of hearing

    That's like saying, "Would you stop breathing if oxygen got banned?"


    It just isn't possible.....

    Do you mean any type of fighting what so ever or just realistic violence? And if so just graphical or in general?

    Violence in a lot of games is simply to drive the plot or set the scene. It's hardly just "violent for being violent". Admittedly some games are like that but the games I enjoy the most aren't.

    So I'd probably invest my money in something else if this was the case

    No, it's not :wtf: Aside from all the other faulty analogies you conjured, a videogame does not require violent content, as any puzzle/music game can demonstrate.

    But most video games aren't puzzle and music games.

    Even something as simple as Legend of Zelda or Final Fantasy can be considered violent. I mean look at the lessons Zelda is teaching us. Kids should just pick up swords and fight evil? Fuck you Nintendo for ruining our youths!

    I hear Super Pillow Fighter IIX Mega Arcade Edition Turbo 2 Director's Cut 64 3D Advance is pretty good.

    I'd probably drop gaming and enjoy the wonders of nature.

    You're missing the option: "I have / will never care about how violent a video game is." Some of my favourite games have absolutely no violence in to begin with.

    Probably not. Plenty of fun non-violent games out there.

    Y'know, you could still do that too.
    I mean, if they removed every hostile NPC and your ability to interract with NPCs in any way that might be considered violent.
