But should there be a game named kindergarten killers?
I don't blame the games but I don't feel people that are not in touch with reality already should not be playing them. I know someone who lets there 5yr old play some of these and she wonders why he can be hard to control at times. Gets back to parenting.
First of all, it's "Kindergarten Killer" not plurar. Secondly, it's a flash game. Which means it's web based. Third, the site the game is on went dormant in 2005 which means no one gives a flying *censored* about the game. It's irrelevant and just shows that they were grabbing at straws. Bulletstorm? Seriously? It takes place in space. You kill monsters. Grand Theft Auto? Please. Nothing about that game screams reality. It's set in a fake city, using fake guns, and fake cars.
Guns aren't the problem. Games aren't the problem. Movies aren't the problem. Music aren't the problem. It's piss poor parenting. It's having both god damn parents working. When I was growing up both of my parents were home for me. I played games. Started in the 1980's with Wasteland, Q-Bert, Zork. I'm 35 now, I still play games. My current catalogue includea games like, Wasteland, Grand Theft Auto, Fallout, Call of Duty, Saints Row, Halo, Medal of Honor.
I've done everything in these games that these *censored* idiot retards claim make people shoot people. Wrong. I had good parents who taught me the difference between this is real and this is a work of interactive art. My father introduced me to video games. My 13 year old step son also plays these games and my wife are home for both my kids. When he does something wrong he's punished. He knows the difference between a stupid game and reality. I'm so *censored* sick of this *censored*. Everytime some *censored* flies off the handle they immediately go to 'Oh da vidya gaemz iz da cauz!' No, you *censored* brain dead politician it's the parents fault for not being parents. I play games to get away from reality, to unwind. I don't play games killing demons in Doom because I'm training to kill people. I play because it's entertaining and allows me to escape the bullshit of reality. Now, if you excuse me, I'm going to go play Fallout: New Vegas and help the Powder Gangers slaughter everyone in Goodsprings because I feel like it.
Oh, when my son first started playing these game he had one game and got to play for 1/2 an hour. He was then told the first time he acts anything he does in the game in real life with any of his friends or lashes out at anyone that would be the end of it. That was four years ago and now his Xbox 360 games catalogue surpasses mine. I still have more PC games than him.
