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....

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.

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

I believe that some people just start out violent, and video games just feed the fire thats already there.

sure some games make you feel more powerful than you actually are, but only the psychos and idiots ever act on those feelings.

why, instead of pointing fingers, dont these so-called 'experts' work on solving the problems. people dont become violent just because the feel like it, there are always motives. no matter what a person does, the reason they do it is because they feel it is within their best interests to do so. that is the bottom line in human nature.

Sadly, many people try to blame the video game industry for the violence that is happening all around the world.

Ok, true enough. I must admit that some ames may cause some violent actions, But also take into mind what the surrounding envoiroment of the that person's neighbourhood is.

The point is that the video games industry ca't be held responsible for the violence that results from playing the game. The games does have an age restriction, and it should be sticked to.

Ohhhhhhhhh, professional sport is getting too violent must be the games that imitate sports fault.

I bet these footballers do nothing but go home and play these games all night taking tips on how to tackle. Then go to the stadium and warm up with a quick video game.

Australian governement rufused recently to introduce a R rating to video games. Said that children would still be able to buy them. Why have the other ratings then? Why have ratings on videos or CD's?

"After weeks of reviewing hard hits that have resulted in a bevy of fines, the NFL has decided to review the video game industry. "

Translation:: "We better find a scapegoat before the parents stop children watching sports. Lets jump on the video games are bad, that will at least divert attention from sports"

" "I think it's pretty odd that the players are saying that the video game industry is a standard for reality," Iribarren said. " (Midway games)

the true test is if violent crime is increasing in proportion to PC and video game ownership. Why is it we never see this?

In my city we have <50 muders a year. A similar size city in the US has >400.

This is obviously because we banned GTA.

Or does this means Americans are more violent?

Or is it just because you can't get a gun here? (or take one home even if you own one)

Bottom line, this crap sells newpapers.
