Remember the good 'ol days when technology meant you could either play "pro" or "novice" on pong depending upon the size of the vertical paddle you were using.

Video games are just a figment of imagination that reflect the true desires in our society.

Does anyone else find it interesting that on the Star Tribune's home page "Top News" section, the Navy Yard shooting is one story followed by this one about the new version of an extremely popular & violent video game? I'm not naive enough to think (nor want to get into an argument about) that anyone who plays Grand Theft Auto will go out and shoot up a workplace. I'm just posing the question for discussion sake.

I dont have time to play that game...I have to help the owners of the vikings build their stadium so they can keep up w/ the rest of the N.F.L. they said it will help them win the big one.

@petesakes - of course you had to work in a comment about the NFL/Vikings into a story about a video game. Just like so many of the commenters of the Strib online, yup, sure makes contextual sense here. Geezus.

Nothing like spending hundreds of hours immersed in a voilent world comiiting untold felonies to desensitize the masses. This is the training for the next generation of unfeeling violent criminals.

There's one part of me that thinks there are too many gun laws, another part of me that thinks there isn't enough and a third part of me that thinks gun laws aren't smart enough to control the mass amount of psychotic people on the streets. But the fact that a eighteen year old high school student stop at a gun store after school and pick up an AR-15 and then put it next to his play station while he plays Grand Theft Auto all night is disturbing.
