    Well, its at this point that I don't think I can contribute much to the debate. The brazilian equivalent to this controversy would be Counter Strike map cs_rio wherein drug dealers and the military police have fun in a graphical representation of Rio de Janeiro's favelas. For a whole year running from 2008 to '09 there was a prohibition against the sale of CS due to all the reasons you can imagine, such as apparently encouraging people against social order. Given that crossfires often happen across the city, our moral issue with CS is completely different than young americans learning the war in far away Iraq is fun and the CoD is a good representation of reality.

    I do think that the worry is part of the process though. At some point those kids will have to learn the different between games and reality. At some point they'll have to learn to live in a world where both Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan exist. Or (I guess?) Spec Ops: The Line and CoD exist. And I hope the parents will be part of the process.

    If it's the first, then games as a "glorification" of war are at the very least as old as chess. The kind of war they glorify is also hardly the kind that makes you itch for a gun and enemies to shoot; instead the game teaches you about long-term final objectives, about the value of sacrifice in the field of battle, that every piece has its uses no matter how niche it may seem and, surprisingly, it isn't even focused on total elimination -- forcing the opponent to surrender the battle is key to victory. Watching speed-runs you might notice that, even for first person shooters, the most effective approach often ignores much of the actual combat in favor of key objectives, check-points, triggers and the like. So games do glorify war, as in, they glorify a form of contest, where the victor is decided on the basis of various key attributes, mainly intelligence and reflexes, but there's nothing to suggest that games glorify violence as a favorable solution to problems. I'm more prone to believe that spectator sports foster communities that rely on violence to solve their problems, as they draw their excitement from watching people exert themselves physically and need an outlet for their built up energy.

    Video games are merely another medium in a long, long history of wargaming. Video gaming grew out of wargaming, really. It should not surprise anyone that a contingent of video games is still primarily concerned with warfare, soldiering, and overall death and mayhem.

    Entertainment has forever been used to condition and acclimate the common people to changes and conditions that those at the top want to implement. Trends in culture are not accidental, and they rarely rise from grass roots. These 100 million dollar FPS get support from the U.S. military, same as flashy Hollywood films that depict the military and its goals as completely altruistic, righteous, competent, brave, and bad-ass. For years they've been using electronic games to condition trainees to immediate response to specific "stimuli." CoD, BF, etc. are the consumer version. Part of a continuing effort to reduce hesitation to fire on the enemy (they found during early conflicts like the Civil War, that there was a large percentage of soldiers who intentionally missed the enemy. They've been trying to lower that percentage with each conflict), as well as acclimate the public to perpetual war involvement. Now they can do it before humans even reach puberty. And they'll keep plying the people with narratives about the scary third world, so that to the average mind it will become normal that we'll (the U.S.) always be embroiled in some conflict all our lives, because the rest of the world is a dangerous, chaotic place and we're the good guys holding the line, so what else could we do?

    Hey don't worry, scientists and think tanks employed by the U.S. government are entirely sure of this...

    Thom. I replied to his "Until I no longer receive abusive comments for pointing out this issue, comments will remain closed" with just a link to the pic above.
    He quickly deleted my post and suspended my account.

    Can't wait for the pendulum to swing back the 80s way. How delicious the hipster SJW butthurt would be if Hollywood started making movies like this again

    Privileged CIS het scum gun owning conservative white men taking matters into their own hands and clearing the streets from minorities when cops are unfit to protect law abiding citizens :love::bounce:
    Once the economy gets bad enough, violent crime rates go up and people around the Western world become sick and tired of nanny states and multiculturalism, it's bound to happen. It's economic well being that's keeping up this liberal hipster bubble, once regular people start facing real problems, they wont take any shit from SJWs. You can't white/male/straight shame people who can't find a permanent job and are forced to deal with the fruits of multiculturalism on a daily basis.

    You can see the butthurt straight out of l1brul 80s films. I think the 80s is when SJWs as we know them were born anyway.

    It seems like we're heading in the same direction as America in the 70s. Movies like Dirty Harry and Death Wish came out during a time of oil crisis, rising (black) crime rates (after the end of civil rights and hippie movement) and All in the Family desperately trying to make l1berals look smart and conservatives stupid. Even though 80s was an economically prosperous time, the film trend of vigilantes taking on hood scum (and criminals being portrayed as vile, morally reprehensible beasts with no redeeming qualities rather than victims of their environment) continued during the decade.
    Now Western Europe is in a similar situation. Sweden was a leftist utopia in the 70s but nowadays it has its fair share of dangerous ghettos. At least in most US states whiteys can defend themselves if necessary.
    That's the way you could create a movie like that these days, which would also force l1berals to like it. Show a hard working nigga/sandnigga who despises the culture around him and decides to make a stand for all the law abiding citizens who are affected by the situation. You could show how "good immigrants" are being wrongly accused of things and treated poorly because they belong to an ethnic/cultural group that commits a disproportionately high amount of crimes, while simultaneously showing how damaging third world immigration and poor integration is to the host country as well as move the blame to law makers and politicians of first world countries. And if the movie was set in the US, it could also show how African American culture used to be far less degenerate with a Bill Cosby type father/grandfather character who despises gangsta culture and longs for the good old days. Some one who was discriminated against during 50s/60s and now has to deal with young punks who use racism as a shield, protecting them from being held responsible for their actions.

    So this guy got fired from his job over Gamergate. How do you fire someone over email or text message? That's so immature.
    [​IMG]
    Here's the guy's twitlonger on his story. I'm not familiar with programming so I can't really vet it.

    It appears if you are a minority and don't know your place, the SJWs will have you fired.

    In this day and age, it wouldn't be surprising if this was indeed the truth.
    Although lack of profile pics is suspicious.

    Someone's still surprised over people being fired for Twitter messages after it's been a thing for like three years? Well.

    None of my professional contacts have profile pictures either, and I imagine he can't fake employment/firing as it is too easy to check up on. But still, just the notion that a boss would fire someone over text is outright infuriating to me. Not even the reason for the firing being twitter comment, just the texting itself. That's on par with breaking up with someone over text.

    It's probably worse. Employment generally has a legally binding contract as well. I know KWA is KWA and you can hire and fire at the drop of a hat, but still, this kind of shit is retarded.
