Reactions Prove Studies

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 12, in the year of our Lord 2013 - - You know want irritates me the most about the video game industry? No, not the propaganda. Sure that is bothersome, and tiring to repetitively hear. What irritates me the most is the failure to honestly look at, and address the problems. Take recent scientific studies on the negative effects of violent video games. The studies claim gamers who play violent video games are more aggressive and hostile. Guess how the violent gamers responded to the study? Did they celebrate the diversity of the study? Did they take forty days to analyze themselves and ask if it was accurate? Did they calmly and rationally respond in kindness and love?

They responded in a hostile and aggressive manner. They immediately attacked the studies. They went off the cuff in their condemnation of the study. It was all of this sticking fingers in their ears, while they screamed: “LA LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU LA LA LA LA LA!” There was more concern about how the studies made gamers look, than to honestly look at the studies. As all the fur was flying around I had one thought. Do you know what I was thinking? Do you know what synapses were firing in my brain? I thought: “They have proven the studies with their responses.” All of the aggressive and hostile responses are what continue to make my fellow gamers look bad. The failure to respond in a mature and intelligent manner show the rest of society that we are not ready to be at the big table.

My fellow gamers need to take a deep breath, and chill out when these studies come out. They need to take some time to analyze the study with a calm mind. Ranting and raving in anger is not helping. In fact is it hurting. Get away from the computer and go find a punching bag, or maybe a tree. Although the tree will probably hurt when you hit it. Release your anger in a constructive fashion away from where the industry will be made to look bad. When you can respond in a mature, calm, cool, and collected manner – then work slowly on a response. Like I did.
