American media is actually buying into the “video games cause violence” spiel?
I’m at my goddamn limit. The country is a joke to everyone else in the world.
I agree this whole Video games cause Violence spiel is an outdated argument
yet this argument is used every time there's a tragedy
to hand wave the issue away
because why tackle the real issues and cause of said tragedy
when we have a scapegoat and that scapegoat is video games
even though there are studies that prove the contrary
so why blame Video games?
simple its so the media has a dragon to slay of course
Honestly, it's the same damn group as always. We just got two mass shootings so they're all on damage control and deflecting from the actual issue. It'll all sadly blow over, again, until the next mass shooting happens.
We are a bad joke. Always have been, and probably always will be. Most of us here are sick of this shit too.
this whole "Video Games cause Violence" argument needs to be put to rest for good
what this is can be summed up as another Moral Panic
instead of actually trying to look into the issue
they come out and say "he played Violent Video Games that's why he did it" because why bother actually trying to investigate the motive when there's a scapegoat
i'm sorry i'm really sick and tired of this whole "Video Games cause Violence" crap
Isolation and extremism cause these incidents, and access to weapons. Gun proponents like to say that a good guy with a gun can stop a rampage. Maybe true, but the shooter in Ohio was killed after 30 seconds. Firepower that can kill nine people in 30 seconds is not the same as being able to purchase a pistol.
