Probably dreamed up in one of their brainstorming sessions to find arresting and sensational statements that idiots would eat up. The 'panel' of experts was questionable, let alone unjustified as their comments descended into a chorus of malign without reproach.

FOX 'News' is the biggest misnomer of all because they don't report news at all, but actually just project RIGHT WING OPINION using manipulative and underhanded practices.

You know what's really not good for you? Watching FOX and believing their reportage to be fair and balanced - it makes you weak of mind. Obviously.
Dude....can we talk about video games without having to insult Christians?

We will try, but understand we're not miracle workers.

I never said I watched Fox. I never said I watched that interview. I made a comment on the mindless defense of any and all rubbish that is put out by video game producers. Your whole post is a complete waste of bandwidth.

The only bigots that are accepted are those with a hatred of Christianity. You have displayed that quite effectively here and in the politics forum.

Out right lies? yeah and the lie from CNN on the vietnam mass killing they did a few years ago. Maybe the lies CBS spewed with the false documents that Dan Rather proudly defends to this day. You're a joke.


There are two things that piss me off about video gamers. One they are never happy. They complain about the title of a game, the graphics, the game play and the list goes on. The second thing that pisses me of is the reflexive need to defend that filth that is constantly put out by game producers. Oh wait I said that before. But damn if it isn't true. And if you dare to disagree with them you get mindless crap responses by mezkal. His whole reply to me was based on nothing but a mindless reactionary need to justify his addiction. Gamers are the biggest bunch of cry babies on the planet.

Ok I just watched the video. You guys are blowing this way out of proportion. he made the comment of Luke Skywalker meets Debbi Does Dallas as a off-hand remark. Get over your selves. What they said it true. You guys are so caught up in your own little gaming world you can't see anything but the next gib across the screen.

I re-reading mezkal's post after listening to that video, it make me think he is all the more pathetic. To bring religion into this is just stupid. Go take a Paxil

sure, but who the hell is the government or anyone else to tell us that they are not good for us?

first, i dont care what is in video games. as long as they are marked/rated correctly and not sold to minors, i dont care. however, what i do have a problem with, is some group of people talking about how it's bad for society and what not. if it's so bad, THEN DONT ****IN BUY IT.

second, if the government were to try to step in to ban this type of content, that would be overstepping their bounds imo. enforce more strict age control and ratings, fine. but limiting content because of minimal nudity is just retarded.
