We must ban video games

Seems the nut job in Norway practiced by playing Modern Warfare and World of Warcraft. Color me skeptical that, basically, role-playing social media played a role in that.

    Sounds like a modified twinkie defense – without the sugar.

    I initially started to reply that anybody who thinks COD is a realistic training experience is an idiot, but then I realized that calling him an idiot comes far short of describing how much of a monster this guy is.

    Its one of those false causality correlations. Modern Warfare and WoW are two extremely popular games.

    Every mass murderer eats food. Every mass murderer breaths air. Ever mass murderer owns a pair of sneakers. They all own at least one pair of pants.

    Obviously all of these things cause Mass murder.

    What’s the re-spawn time of a Level 1 Norwegian Tourist anyway? How many XP?

    If I ever have to escape a Russian Army base with only a G18 and a snowmobile, I’m set. Otherwise, all I’ve learned from COD is that 10 year olds have annoying voices on a headset, and most of them kick my butt.

    mmassee: The Twinkie defense was that a sudden change in diet from health food to Twinkies indicated an underlying mental illness, not that Twinkies made him do it.

    So unless he’d been a rabid anti-gamer before, that wouldn’t be a good parallel.

    or hacking camper.

    zomg norwegian haxx.

    Tam said it was Battlefied 2. All I learned in that game is that my friend can roll any military vehicle onto its roof.

    There is really only one thing that I have found translates from FPS games to reality: trigger control. Basically, video games can teach people to fire machineguns in short controlled bursts, instead of just spraying and praying.
