He's just jealous that back in his day, there were no electronic gizmos to do the molesting. Such lonley childhood nights...

as opposed to the politicians making laws that turn children into criminals for downloading a song they like but have no way to pay for as its only available digitally, i wonder which is more abusive, a child playing a game or a swat raid taking away the childs computer and locking the child up whilst awaiting bail.

To this day it amazes me what some people blame only because of what some mentally impaired wacko was able to achieve. Video games and guns should be the least priority in this worry, why don't you focus more energy on something that makes sense like mental health of individuals and poor parenting. When is that gonna take in acount, when you finally run out of scapegoats to blame for?!

If those are the sort of thoughts that go through his head, someone should check his computer out if he has one. How sho ked would anyone be if people found out he was a nonce. the sooner these old guys all die, the entertainment industry will have more peace.They really have no clue. They certainly don't do any if their own research. Totally unqualified to have any opinion of the games industry.

Well, presuming he's done his research - he's taken part in the "electronic child molesting".
If not - how could he have a clue?

Either way - what a f**king idiot.

The day someone blooters some ould bag to death with a Sega Saturn or saws someone's arm off with a gameboy cartridge they can blame gaming for hurting people. Until then - look to the f**king auto shotgun on the kitchen worktop, the culture of greed and stupidity, the gung ho guns r fun attitude etc.

They're age rating on games for a reason, the childrens parents/guardians have a duty to judge up to the age 16 to monitor their online and media interactions, video games are protected by the first amendment in america and many UN freedoms laws. How many times do we need to bloody tell people.

only 30 more years until these old guys die off can't bloody wait

The problem with his "headline" statement is that he makes the assumption that ALL video games are made for children. Doesn't he realise "violent" video games are made for adults and rated appropriately so?

What am I saying, that's far too logical :roll:

When I was growing up we had good honest wholesome entertainment.

Stuff like Tom and Jerry, Daffy Duck, Roadrunner, Magic Roundabout and Captain Pugwash.
No violence, drugs or sexual innuendo in that list! :P

Well, if that's the case, I've been enjoying the molestation for a good 15 years now. Devs like Platinum, Atlus and Valve sure know where to touch me. Capcom and EA on the other-hand have been a bit rough with me lately...
Activision... I... I don't want to talk about it!!!

I have been getting raped by the raid bosses in borderlands 2 for a while now. Not really a child anymore though. Plus I am only at level 40 and I keep going back for more. I think they will get away with this one.
