    Video games promote hatred, violence and sexism

    Post by Payno on Sat Mar 20, 2010 7:01 pm



    Try watching this without getting angry.

    For those of you who aren't in England and dont know who these people are:

    Alan Titchmarsh (the presenter) - used to present gardening programmes but now tries hosting chat shows that cover all sorts of topics.
    Julie Peasgood - British actress and author who starred in A Woman's Guide to Adultery and wrote The Greatest Sex Tips in the World.
    Tim Ingham - CVG editor
    Kelvin McKenzie - ex newspaper editor.

    The gardner and the slut's comments are particularly grating.

    A load of invalids, 3 people who have no clue wtf they are talking about and the CVG editor was left to the slaughter, but atleast he knows what the hell hes talking about.

    No wonder the average viewing age for that show is 60, using westerns and the lone ranger as comparisons, reeeeeeeeeeeeally?

    These retards are just trying to put a hate on video games because they probably
    never had the chance to play the games we play today. XD

    Oh god, i really want to write a detailed critique of this but my head hurts too much.

    The only guy apart from the poor CVG man that makes a point that i can really see where he is coming from is the newspaper editor.

    Just more semi-right wing, conservative, quasi-american style of TV that sadly is becoming more and more commonplace on our British screens.

    I have no problem with people who dislike video games, it's no different to me disliking rugby. But these people went on this show with no intention of having an open mind about it. It was just an opportunity for them to have a rant and gain some kudos with the ageing audience.

    Sadly it worked and that show has probably convinced all it's viewers that anyone who plays video games will probably kill them in a mad video game fuelled frenzy.

    If anything, video games have convinced me to never pick up a gun unless some kind of real life auto aim feature is invented.

    Through Gran Turismo does seem to have made me get in to every car's slipstream on the motorway just so I can get a little extra speed.
