Love it lol, not saying that would solve a lot of **** we have today, but I love how people freak like if video games are food or medicine... Video game culture and acceptance is on the rise and so it would make so much sense that these people freak out...


Next up: Someone says they're up for banning a certain food item

Them: Right because is not as if we don't have a ton of other ****ty food out there, right?

Hey, if someone proposes to ban something I really like, like sweets, internet or private automobiles, that's when I go into jihad mode.

No videogames, no internet, no guns, no drugs, no sweets...

Geez. Is knitting okay, or is that too scandalous within your utopia?

You didn't mention rap music.
I remember when rap was fun and clever (the 80's) but now it just seems like a bunch of crap that glorifies violence, drugs, the thug life and treating women like sex objects.

Hip-hop glorified those things 25-30 years ago as well; the difference is the dudes back then actually lived that life and its realness showed itself in the music (plus they actually had talent).

Today's "rappers" are almost all fake no-talent wannabe gangsters who are basically actors in a play; skinny jeans, dresses, pink hair--you think Biggie or 2pac would be caught in that scene?

Not realy. As long as humans can escape into another world, videogames will continue to exist. Im working on a VR app on Unity.
