    And people say Michael Moore is nuts. He is really the first public figure who had the balls to say that :up:

    balls AND common sense....


    I'm hoping the violence issue will die down soon like the violence/cinema debate, as more adults play games now and realise not to listen to the God fearing d**ks who come up with this crap.

    I did my second year thesis on videogame violence (quite interesting imo) and it amazes me how people can claim such stupid ideas without any shred of conclusive evidence....

    I don't agree with all his views, even though he makes entertaining movies, but it's about time someone said this.


    I don't know why anyone ever replied to accusations of games causing violence with 'OMG the world was a peaceful utopia before pong?????'

    Why did it have to come from Moore? I still loath the clown but I'm surprised he's the only one that says this. Now all we need is for Hillary and ol' Joe Lieberman to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Sounds very interesting.

    I wouldn't expect a flaming liberal to say this, with Hilary Clinton, Joe Lieberman and Jack Thompson saying the opposite.

    Should we believe what Hilary, Libermann, and that nutter Thompson are spouting about video games without anything to back up their statements other than their emotions?

    It's amusing how people who disagree with Moore's views bring an unrelated thing (his weight) into things.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Moore isn't just liberal, he's "booed off the stage by other Liberals Liberal."

    Just sortof shocking.

    It's amusing (and ironic) that a man who weighs 400+ pounds spends so much time and energy 8!+9#!~6 and complaining about the excesses of American society.

    Funny, considering he choose to use video game clips in Bowling for Columbine to implicate that games played a roll in the shootings....

    yeah i think i remember a clip in the movie as well. but its been awhile since i've seen it and i only saw it once. anyway, violent people play violent games. but they should be thankful that most reasonable, intelligent, violent people take out thier frustration on video games rather than in real life.

    You would think conservatives would be the ones with the sticks up their ass about game violence. Go figure that one. Must be a gun thang. :cool:

    Michael Moore is wrong.

    It's well known that the more you practice something, the more likely that you will react as you have practiced. It's why sports and the military constantly have their people run drills.
