I have decided to share some of my positive and negative thoughts regarding the online world and online gaming. This blog will hopefully spark at least a little debate.

In this episode of Promoting Thought I take the breaks off my own feelings a little and call out "Stop Blaming the Gamer" we have all seen the stories.  Video games inspiring violence poisoning the youth, the latest one Grand Theft Auto (later edited to read "Video Game") Was responsible for the London Riots.

Please listen to the video and let me know what you think, this isnt my normal style of trying to break things down into pro's and con's this is me putting what I think and feel out there, no script and no stopping to censor or hold back what I say.

Its high time society stopped looking to us as a scape goat for its own failings, and started empowing the law enforcement and education authorities instead of praching an agenda of ignorance designed to distract attention away from the failings of the current systems.

 

In a world where a man can attempt to rob a house, fall through the roof and then sue the home owner SUCCESSFULLY for damages, I am sick of hearing this hyperbole about how games are the poison of culture.

 

The truth is society needs to stop coddling to criminals and bring back consiquence for action.

 

More in the video, watch it share it comment on it hate it.  Its how I feel and I wont back down from it.

Agree completely with you. Have nothing to do with games. And if they want to do something, then better they stop broadcasting any daily news.
