    Classic Full Metal Jacket.

    Sergeant: How tall are you, Private?
    Private: 5'10'' sir!!
    Sergeant: I didn't know they stacked .......... that high.

    ah good stuff...

    Sergeant: Where are you from?
    Private: Texas, sir!
    Sergeant: Texas. The only things that come from Texas are steers and queers and you sure don't look much like a steer to me so that kind of narrows it down....

    violence in video games to full metal jacket...hmmm...a trend?
    lol, nah it's a good movie, that video game violence stuff is overboard, if it causes problems it's the parents fault.

    Video games are meaningless fun. A lan party senerio from a recent l-party we had with me and a bud playing half life:

    Me: *sneaks up behind him*
    him: *whips round blows me up*
    Me: You son of a ***** i'll kill you!!
    me: *opens fire, loud machine gun fire thru speakers*

    his mom: *breaks open door* OMG MY baby!

    us: O.O

    she proceeded to tell us our games were too violent bleh blah blah

    if parents are so concerned about violence in games, maybe they shouldnt buy games for their kids, ya know, would a mom take her 9 year old to a XXX movie??? of course not, but yet she'll buy him a FPS and then blame someone else when he goes psycho in a few years. maybe if they had like ratings on games er something ya know, so people would know what kind of content was in em........oh wait ESRB.....god people common sense. i hate this "debate" that society likes to have. 1st movies, then music now games......

    nice cartoon. yes i think this video game violence connection is b.s. ive been playing violent video games for years and im a pretty pacifistic person actually. i guess a rating system is necessary for those poor people who cant distinguish video games from reality. i do think they current one makes some games sound like they have worse content than they really do.
    yum, yum potatoes!!!!!

    I play video games of all sorts almost constantly and apart from being an angry pyromaniac, I'm not very violent myself.
