Mothers Against Videogame Addiction and Violence

Funniest site I’ve seen in a while… They continually point to “research” and “fact” that video games are a detriment to society, yet there isn’t a single link to any of this “research” or any of these “fact-proving studies”.

Fact: Hardcore gaming not only leads to video game addiction and abrupt lifestyle changes, but to crime and felony as well. Hardcore gamers never buy computer video games. Instead, downloading illegally copied video games or ?warez? is the only method acceptable by the underground. Buying a legit copy is grounds for abandonment by community groups. You may not be buying your child videogames, but they can illegally obtain them off the internet.

(emphasis mine)

Hahahaha. They make it sound like video game “communities” are a cult that will brainwash your children and turn them into mindless felons!

These “mothers” may be taken a little more seriously if they backed up some of their “facts” with some sort of irrefutable evidence. And didn’t exaggerate and make blanket statements about the gaming “lifestyle”. Hey ladies, I’ve been playing video games since I was 5 years old, and have never committed a crime or killed anyone! I socialize perfectly well with others and actually work out in the public! Am I some sort of fluke, then? Since ALL gamers are criminals and social out-casts? Puh-leeze.

Someone needs to form S. P. A. M. W. T. M. T. O. T. H. “Sane People Against Mothers With Too Much Time On Their Hands”.
