Of course it applies to all media!

This is a gaming board though ... I'll spare you the ranting about other forms of mind-killing.

Then do explain how civilization has survived all of these years with the advent of books...after-all, the most violent one was contains content from around 3500 years ago.

Can you honestly suggest that 'books' have the same impact (and widespread usage among youth) as gaming?

Is there no difference in your mind?

False comparison IMO.

I have two words for you of atrocities committed in the name of a book that dwarf any violence, brainwashing, or hypocracy that 30 years of video games have induced:

The Crusades.

You know, where entire generations of young people went off to murder in the name of the Pope?

Or how about

The Inquisition

You know, where they'd stick a rod up your ass and expand it until it ripped you open on the inside to get you to confess that you don't believe in the Holy Bible? And that doing this was a good and pure thing to do?

I mean hell, some fucktard killed John Lennon because he said Catcher in the Rye told him to do it.

Charlie Manson had his cult/gang/"family" murder people to instigate a race war he was clued into by a Beatles song.

Karl Marx wrote his little communist manifesto and it led to the Russian and Chinese revolutions, wherein *millions* of people were murdered in the name of political ideology.

And I apologize for the Godwin, but some little book called Mein Kampf talked about the Jews and a "solution" to the problems that they entail. The author was kind of popular and convinced an entire country to go along with his ideas.

Let me know when video games are responsible for a fucking holocaust dude. Until then your assertion is terribad and you should feel bad for having it. You come off with delusions of relevancy and smug superiority when you obviously know shit about shit. You have no proof, no citation, just this certainty that you are superior to the people around you because you "see" while they are "blind".

And pull up your pants.
