Quote:This time around, politicians against video games seem very upset over games where you can get it on with a prostitute ( cmon, like they never did ) and earn points or the games with violence against women ( you can kill billions of other menjust not women ). Interesting ardOCP-fact: Japan, has less than half the US population and they play 5 times more video games than us. Number of murders in Japan last year? 75. Number of murders in the US? 16,000+. Why isnt Japan a bunch of homicidal video game fanatics?
Quote:Originally posted by L337Llama Heres my view:There is less violence (actual violent acts, but there is more in the media) than before, so when something happens, they need to amke a big deal of it. The media cares about ratings, so by make something like vioelnce and video games bigger than actually is, it can gte people worried and crying for some sort of response, and by doing all this, the media gets its ratings.At least thats what I think...
