Guns don't kill people. Video Games do!

This is Mass Effect all over again.

There is indeed a war brewing folks. But it might not be between Sony and Microsoft.

Thoughts?

the fact that this dude makes boat loads of money off spewing nonsense just makes me sad. You should hear his views on evolution.

Glen Beck needs to be taken behind the shed.

Trolls will troll. And in his case, make sh*tloads of money for it (how do I score a gig like that?).

HOLY FUCK I WATCHED IT

FUCKING LOL

#12 Edited by santoron (7749 posts) -

Budding trolls should pay attention to Beck. He's mastered the "artform".

#13 Posted by GoldenElementXL (3209 posts) -

@Blabadon: Yup. Watch Dogs is teaching kids how to hack people's "docked" iPads. Apparently pressing the square button is all it takes.

that guy is still around?

Glenn Beck saying something dumb, what's new?

It's funny how he's siting a coroner, like the consistent game feature is the game was found lodged into the dead mens' skulls.

In other news, conservative Mormons like Glenn Beck are going to stop Oktoberfest from taking place in Utah this year by refusing alcohol permits. They're just fucking buzzkills.

#16 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (14111 posts) -

What an idiotic conclusion to arrive at.

Not only that but watchdogs is probably one of the least violent games I've ever played, sure you shoot and kill people but they just fall over, no blood or exit wounds.

I think only in a few occasions I actually saw some blood.

Now that's funny.

Edit: Holy fuck this guy is funny.

Love Glen, especially when he's on the O'Reilly Factor. Those two are great.

But Rush is king, baby!

Oh no, millions of old middle class people don't like video games. What will we do if they launch a ten year plan to kill games? As they will likely die off in seven, I guess our plan should be not caring.

#26 Posted by MuD3 (1277 posts) -

so many face palms listening to this.... what a moron.

I'd agree with you, but then we would all be wrong....

_______________________________________________________________-

anyways though

This guy is nuttier than squirrel shit. Did he really liken playing games as bad as smoking Crack? lmao... I can't believe I made it through 10 minutes of that crap...

What a damn hypocrite... I say he wants to go without cell phones? Ok... lets start with his. He said "he had to" so that makes it ok.... I mean am I right?

So... no cell phones, guns, video games, knives, internet.... on and on and on. However, the fact he is on TV is just fine... So, basically all I got out of that was.. If Glen Beck says it's ok, then its fine. He doesn't think for a minutes time that maybe he is influencing people in a negative manner? Lets all have no clue once so ever at all about a product and make bold uninformed comments... it's fun.

I hate people like that... if you don't know what you are talking about.. then don't talk about it. That is something my 6 and 7 year old know.

Every time the guy opens his mouth people's ears are assaulted by verbal diarrhea.

what a fucking moron... Studies have proven this is not the case...

#30 Edited by Desmonic (14120 posts) -

I agree. I mean every time Dark Souls made me rage I went out on a mass murderer spree, like millions of gamers worldwide. It was only logical.

Not being American whenever I hear the words Fox News I automatically think of this video.

Glen always acts like he is going to drop a bomb.............but never does. He's nobody.

#36 Posted by _Matt_ (8911 posts) -

Never heard of this guy, but after watching that, I can see he is definitely a moron.

Stopping your kid from playing video games in your own home is the worst thing you can do if you're a worried parent. You should instead sit and play the games with them, guiding their moral and ethics while seeing for yourself the games are not that bad...I'm no parent, but surely that is a far better idea than just banning video games in your own house?

Well that sounds slightly perverted...

Also he does have a point, If I played call of Duty I would want to kill myself as well...

#39 Edited by McStrongfast (4270 posts) -

Singling out one factor as the reason for different people taking their lives seems highly stupid. Especially when you don't bother going deeper than "they played Call of Duty". Humans aren't that simple. What about playing Call of Duty would make you want to kill yourself? Nope, that's apparently not important to the argument they're making. The fact that some amount of people who've done bad shit have played videogames in which the player character exhibits violent behavior towards NPC's or other players, is supposedly enough to lend this theory merit. More ice-creams were sold, therefore more shark attacks.

And the fact that teenagers play Call of Duty should be met with a "well that's nothing out of the ordinary, it's a very popular game in the age demographic" rather than "hm, this is probably why they committed suicide". I can understand this ignorant coroner being concerned when he thinks there might be a pattern where there's likely none, but it's unfortunate how his ignorance is being amplified by people like this Beck fellow. Spreading ignorance surrounding these sorts of topics is both dangerous and disrespectful.

Some games are that bad, though. There is no way that I would let a child play GTA, or really most of the big titles on the Xbox and Playstation.

Oh Glen? Only if Hitler, Billy the kid, Charlie Manson, Jack The ripper, Jeffery Dahmer, and the countless thousands other killers in history didn't play those pesky video games!

Your bogus crusade might have merit...There smart guy.

Since the "bad" ones are all age rated though your argument is the same as saying There is no way that I would let a child drink a bottle of Gin , smoke and watch porn. That's just common sense.

Guns and the fact that they are easier to get than to register to vote is what kills people.

People kill people. Guns are a needed tool to protect you from those people.

What do you want a society where the criminal has the only power?

GUNS FOR GANGSTERS!! That's my motto!

Well, when I go to a bar, I don't see kids running around. I can't say the same when I put on a headset and play COD or Halo.

The best part is that he doesnt even believe any of this crap. He just knows his audience and how to make money off them.

They would follow this guy off a cliff.

#50 Posted by Desmonic (14120 posts) -

@PurpleMan5000: That is still by far and away the parents responsibility though. The game companies are just creating a product, which is many times rated for adults only. The problem arises when game stores and parents don't give a single f*ck about said ratings and then whine about how "violent" X or Y game is.
