    It's a sad reflection on society that many people would agree with you about no.15.

    Pretty easy as I can only think of three that did it for me enough.

    2. Scott Pilgrim vs The world - Leo's place

    3. Uncharted Main theme.

    Those 3 tunes make you want to go on a killing spree?

    I can't stop thinking about the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and I just need to talk about them a bit, so sorry if I'm rambling.

    Firstly, Teddy, I keep thinking of the bear arms/arms of a bear gag on Family Guy.
    Secondly, Fry, that article made me well-up too, so I made my wife read it so I wouldn't be the only one!
    Thirdly, CMcK, I agree with you 100%. I hate that every man is a potential paedophile and anybody engaging children is "creepy".

    As for Sandy Hook, the world is trying to get it's head around something that we probably never will. Anders Breivik in Norway, the Columbine shooters, Raoul Moat and so on all had their reasons for the events they created, but because there's no suicide note and Adam Lanza destroyed his hard drive, everybody seems to be trying to rest the blame on something.

    Morgan Freeman blames the media and how they focus on the murderers, not the victims.

    (Fake, but an interesting read)


    The Mayor of New York says Obama needs to ban automatic weapons.
    Ted Nugent says if the teachers were armed, it wouldn't have happened.
    The Sun says it's because he played Call of Duty.
    Being a goth, is a contributing factor say some.
    Others say his paranoid mother is to blame and her stockpile of weapons in preparation for economic and social collapse.

    (Here are some facts about the Newtown gunman, to avoid the Chinese whispers of the internet.)

    Personally, I think Obama needs to make outlawing automatic weapons his legacy, now he's back in power for another four years with no need to fear the NRA, voters or outcries of breaking The Second Amendment. Australia did it as recently as 1996, so it is possible.

    Which leads me back round to thinking if the majority should be restricted because of the actions of the few?

    I was going to talk about movie censorship a bit, but I guess movies, games, music and even art are subject to censorship in some form.

    One of the things I can't comprehend is how the parents of the victims are feeling. Their worlds must be falling apart. If this had happened to my son, I don't know how I'd get up in the morning. I can't imagine life would be worth living.

    So we're all keen to jump up and shout at The Sun and their scare-mongering.
    We're all happy to point the finger at the NRA and say "things have got to change".

    ...but none of us seem to consider that maybe we should reconsider the gun culture in games.

    There, I said it.

    If you'd have asked me a week ago if I thought violent games should be addressed, I'd have laughed at you.
    Now I'm thinking if there really is evidence that excessive exposure to violent videogames genuinely did affect Lanza and is even a slight factor behind the events at Sandy Hook, would I be willing to accept a change in content in future games?

    If I knew it could possibly prevent another Sandy Hook, I'd probably say "yes".

    Sorry for rambling.

    No guns in Dark Souls so fine with me.

    If the US allow automatic weapons then presumably rocket launchers are ok too? And mortars and grenades. Gotta protect yourself.

    How much would a ban on auto and semi auto weapons help? This is gonna sound a bit gruesome but someone could take out a dozen people with a couple of pistols fairly easily and it wouldn't take that much longer. We're still talking seconds.

    Haha...

    err..

    no..

    wrong thread.

    Although if you are going on a killing spree why not listen to good game music while you do it?

    Most modern handguns are either "automatic" or "semi-automatic" unless they're revolvers.

    I think pistols are easily the most dangerous weapon because they can carry a lot of ammo and are light and very easy to conceal and use. You can't walk around town with a hunting rifle, you can with a handgun.

    Exactly, that's why James Bond has one.

    And no, we don't need any more censorship. Crazy people go crazy at times, it doesn't take games to make a normal person crazy.

    And they really can't take guns away from the American public, no matter how many school shootings go down. It would cause too much unrest for a lot of reasons. It's not been that long since a dictator raped half of the planet, if there had have been slightly more resistance maybe that extra few months could have saved millions.
