    If i were to show this to my mother she would just complain, the gen X are both good and bad, sadly thier bad side is what stops them from understanding gen z’s form of entertainment

    I think they left out a crucial game, Super Mario brothers. Ever since Nintendo created the game, it has actually been teaching young kids the abc’s (Mario’s early days.) and the most violent part are either, stomping goombas, Super Smash Brothers (Which is just like moral combat game but it’s kid friendly. Because there are no blood involved, we can’t say they are killed, as you get to play as them over and over again.) and CAP-turing someone or some thing. In fact, Mario bro’s is actually the opposite of making kids violent. Look at Mario kart for example, it allows you to play with your friends, allowing you to bond with them, not fight them. And look at super smash, it’s the same, except it’s a fighting genre. Overall, most Mario games are rated E for Everyone or teens, and some being educational.

    "I’m taking a break to beat the next level. Aw man, it’s underwater!"
    The most accurate depiction of video games I’ve ever seen.

  6. Hayley dog on September 8, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    This guy doesn’t know anything about video games it is a myth tho

  7. caj11 1 on September 8, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    I don’t see how Adam is ruining anything here… I never really thought video games, however violent they were, led to violence in real life. Somebody who causes violence in real life was likely to do so anyway whether they ever played Grand Theft Auto.

    Boys use Twitch.
    Men use Flinch.

    Video Games Don’t make you as the
    Spa Shooter, The Stone Douglas Shooter, Las Vegas Shooter, El Paso Shooter, Dayton Shooter, Odessa Shooter, Columbine Shooters, Sandy Hook Shooter, Christchurch Shooter, The Club Shooter etc.

    Thanks Dr. Ikpoko on YouTube, your herbs really worked

    My dad caught me playing nfs once and gave me a lecture about trash in trash out. Funny enough, right as he caught me, I had just won a race and was about to pull over for a cop to give me a ticket. Also, in real life, I’m a very safe and cautious driver. What’s funny is that he blames video games for my anger and stress when it’s actually caused by the American education system and cyberbullying. The way I see it, video games give people the opportunity to express their desires (however dark they may be) without actually hurting anyone.

    hi

    What did Adam ruin today: Karen’s perspectives on video games causing violence.

  14. deadendkid1968 on September 8, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Joe Lieberman was a Republican…

  15. Victoria M on September 8, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    One can feel aggression from a video game without getting violent, there’s really a lot of insufficient research and there hasn’t been one relevant research/study that says, ‘yeah video games cause criminal violence’, so for people to claim this out there like Trump, shows how uneducated someone can be for believing something and then taking it and spreading it as facts

  16. god on September 8, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Adam didn’t ruin this, he solved this

  17. Seven on September 8, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    People are just violent why could they not accept it

  21. I'm not a bot on September 8, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    For those of you who now know the truth about violent video games you might be thinking if violent video games prevent violence then do peaceful video games cause violence. And my answer to that would be no. Peaceful video games will not in any way cause violence they are just not too good at preventing it as good as violent video games but they do prevent violence though but just less.

  22. VMan29397 on September 8, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    1 argument simply proves this point. How can you partake in acts of violence when your butt is glued to a chair playing video games

  23. Just a Chill Guy on September 8, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I chose option 2.

    If its about screen time it’s worth quitting, reduced outdoor activities have increased health issues

  28. YellowTurtleTV on September 8, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Fact check?

  29. Ragnarok on September 8, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    In Brazil, some time ago, the government blamed a game called Free fire for a school shooting just because the guy was wearing a mask, and there are masks in the game 🤦

  30. Just a Chill Guy on September 8, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    wait the dad came in saying its time for lunch, but then he’s seen eating henrys sandwich. The real victim is that sandwich

  31. Matthew Walton on September 8, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    It was going so well until you blamed "access to guns" as a culprit of susceptibility to mass shootings. I have access to my parents’ firearms and I _never once_ considered taking them school, let alone firing them there. The _real_ culprit is mental health (and possibly some types of drug use such as SSRI’s), which can be exacerbated by environmental conditions such as bullying, an apathetic home life, severe depression, and other factors. We should be turning our attention to providing more widespread and affordable mental health services instead–counseling, for example. We can’t just blame it on "access to guns." Come on Adam, you know better.

  32. Noturnacho O on September 8, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Nahh the dads right let’s call it forknife to anger the kiddies

    didn’t Hitler want to become a painter?

  41. Hylian Dragoon Zero on September 8, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    A few things as well:

    A.) Violent video games aren’t marketed towards children. Most violent media isn’t and many include disclaimers.
    B.) Most violent media is introduced to people at an age where they’re already socialised to believe that violence against real people is wrong.
    C.) While I think a discussion of fictional violence should be held, its still important to realise that real life violence is often due to complex sociological factors relating to the material conditions experienced by people as well as broader cultural trends.

  42. Space Goose on September 8, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I hope the media remembers that streamers does charity streams while playing games and there are players who plays in tournaments for cash

  43. TheDoomslayer 121 on September 8, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    friendly reminder that adam also said that games are sexist and thinks mobile games are on the same level as console or PC
