If only more people played call of duty...

Gunman Kills Two People and Himself in Shooting at Oregon Mall

--snip--

Then came a dozen more bangs. She dropped to the floor, behind the tea counter— “It’s where you would duck if you were getting shot at”—and stayed put, even when a co-worker screamed out, “Oh my god, I see him,” she said. “I was not about to get up and look.”

Anderson thought about her boyfriend, she said. “How much I f--king love him, how much I wish he was there. He’s played a lot of Call of Duty and has a lot of knowledge about guns and what to do in a tight spot.”

1. Call of duty

This is what people think REAL shootouts look like...

Very American I s'pose. And while a mod is used to train Marines, a video game is not life. Why they also use real guns and ranges and fields where rounds fly right above them.

5. Thank you for this rational post!

You would certainly know after being in "multiple shootouts" yourself.
Including one where only "an engine block" saved you from being shot.
Thank you for your service and your wisdom on these matters.

2. I've played Halo a few times.

Some of those guys took it uncomfortably seriously.

If the Call Of Duty loons are anything like the Halo loons, I weep for the future.

3. Some people are startlingly stupid. Life is not a video game.

And that counter would not stop a bullet. It just kept the shooter from seeing her.

4. CoD is dumbed down garbage

Exactly what is wrong with modern gaming.







Wait, wrong forum.
