Gamers are the least violent people I know... [View all]

I don't know a single gamer who ever stuffed a jock into a locker.
I don't know a single gamer who ever tossed a jock out of the locker room into a hallway naked.
I have never seen two gamers come to blows over a game.
I have never seen a riot at a professional gaming event.
I have never seen a gamer run out and burn a car when his "team" won a championship.
I have never seen a fight break out at a gaming convention.


I'm sorry but all this anti-gaming stuff is really bizarre.
Where is all the anti-sports stuff? If we want to talk about violence in our society how about a sport where the idea is to hit the other guy as hard as you can? Ultimate fighting? Where are the complaints about that? How about a guy who gets shot for wearing a team jacket? How about soccer riots? I remember watching cars burn on TV after our hockey team won the Stanley Cup.

When did gamers all of a sudden become the "violent" people?

An aside.. So far this year Childs Play, the gamer charity that gives gifts to needy and sick kids has raised 3.3 million dollars. Yeah we should take their games away

Here's a link in case you want to help us out: http://childsplaycharity.org/
