Ridiculous. Calls for yet more bans. What game was at fault in the late 70s—Pong?
That’s not his point.
Grossman argues that videogames are producing a whole generation of potential mass killer; that the exceptions of yesterday are becoming the norms of today.
By Grossman’s standards I should be locked up for life. Probably killed hundreds of thousands over the years...:)
>>What game was at fault in the late 70sPong?
The kid next door beat me in Pong every afternoon, so I stole my dad’s shotgun and killed his whole family.
Oh wait...no I didn’t. We got into a fight and sent to the principal’s office. We didn’t get expelled. We didn’t get arrested. We didn’t get drugged into a stupor. We just got sent home to our fathers.
Then, we made up the next day and were best friends..until the next time we decided it was time to fight and we repeated it all over again.
If you stop letting boys be boys, they will store up all their energy and it will be released explosively. Look at how feminine these young adult shooters look. That’s what’s wrong with them.
IIRC, there was an arcade game of that period that generated a bit of a stir. It was called "Death Race".
