It seems every educational book I read states something along the lines of 'Video Games are bad' or "Playing video games causes brain damage in young teens" AND I am fucking annoyed!
Can people not look at a video game as a form of entertainment and leave it at that? I don't here anyone complaining about TV being bad for your 'health' and that is quite strange considering video games take way more practice (usualy) and skill and are more interactive then television.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
Do you think video games are bad for you?
Well you see luigi, when a paisano puts his spaghetti noodle in a mamma mia’s ravioli, a little bambino covered in prosciutto comes out about nine months later -Mario
I believe in Mario as my lord and Savior, if you do, put this image in your signature.
Anything is bad when it gets in the way of things that need to be done, such as school, work, etc. As video games are rather addictive, they can easily become a bad thing. Of course, so can movies, books, TV, eating, exercise, the internet, etc.
New media is always evil. Before it was video games it was TV, before it was TV it was radio, before it was radio it was books. Video games aren't bad for you, at least not any worse than those other things that don't really involve physical activity.
Love and Tolerance FTW!! previously Pseudo-dino but you probably guessed that yourself
Video games aren't taboo. It's those who want them get lost in the world like todays politics.
The politic in germany for example bans every game that contains gore, high violence and a very special case would be the wolfenstein series. These contain nazi sybols as the game also uses nazis as the main enemy.
The thing is in germany those symbols get replaced by a wolf and the nazis are called Wolfs/Regime.
Idg why they do this bc seriously these symbols are no bad. We all know that Hitler stole it originally.
Let's look at Dead Island it's also banned in Germany bc Violence again undead creatures is no good.
The games already have te 18+ thing on but the way they get censored is terrible.
That is when politics destroy gamers hope and want games to be taboo.

useless degenerates, why don't you go outside or read a book
And yet your still using SMBX XD
Pretty sure Streetzero was sarcastic.
Anyways, I don't think video games are taboo. They're being treated as such because it's the latest scapegoat for everything bad in the world. Before, it was television and movies, and before that it was toys, I believe. Video games are just the next "punching bag with a picture of someone taped onto it" for the media to blame the world's issues on until they get a new one, like... I dunno, virtual reality? It's happened before, and the tradition will most likely continue for a very long time unless someone does something about it.

Actually some people say that smartphones can cause cancer
This post is ironic. These forums are ironic. My life is ironic.
Even tho you can spot it the last sentence aeromatter said is right.
Guns't don't kill but the people who use them do. Youndon't have to be mentally retarted to do that as people who aren't mentally also trnd to kill others for no reason.
Amd who are peoplengonna blame? What are the politicans blaming? Yes right... the games ofc bc they can't find a better solution to their problems then blaming the games and the makers of them.

They tell me that the games are from the depths of the evilness.
They tell me to not play video games.
They tell me to go outside and face its beauty.
They tell me to make friends as it's easy to reach out and find some.
But all I see outside is nothing compared to what's said to me.
Ok I don't know if you can get the message of this thing I made up.

It is not that they are taboo, it is that politician as said above, dont know who else to blame, when they should blame them selves for the way the world has become. We play games to get away from the real world as the real world is actual hell on earth, (it will be worse then hell if Donald trump becomes president in the Americas, and then many people will assassinate him the world war 3 happens) it is a good escape from all of these problems, but if you want to this to happen in the real world, then help it, not kill a bunch of people. That is a problem. And politicians are to corrupt, stuck up, or stubbron to do anything else. That is some of the problems really.
