[...] even the President and Vice President fingered violent games as a culprit.

Uh what...

"Researchers who participated in Vice President Joe Biden's conference on video games on Friday say that Biden declared himself an "agnostic" when it comes to the belief that video games lead to violence, while suggesting that the country could nonetheless benefit from more research into the subject."

He met with industry leaders multiple times and never once "fingered violent games as a culprit".

In December of 2012, Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, CT. Despite a lack of evidence on anyone's part, video games quickly became one of the major scapegoats for this horrific event. Everyone from the media, the NRA, Legislators and even the President and Vice President fingered violent games as a culprit.

Many years ago a couple weeks after the opening of Fast and Furious, my Prelude was hit by street racers on the highway and totaled. Ergo, ban all movies!
