    My cousin broke his arm jumping from the top bunk bed screaming "Superman!"… He should’ve sued DC Comics.

    NRA is trash! With that being said no amount of gun control bullshit would have prevented school shootings. If some asshole nut job has it in their mind that they’re going to hurt people they are going to find a way to do it with or without guns.

  4. solen18 on November 6, 2021 at 10:34 am

    I think games do make people more FAMILIAR with weapons , but like haven’t movies been doing that for years ? Surprised movies werent brought up

  5. Vendetta on November 6, 2021 at 10:36 am

    bro having Express yourself By NWA really does summarize the video.

  6. Mith on November 6, 2021 at 10:37 am

    GRAND AUTO THEFT EPIC

  7. astroSuperkoala on November 6, 2021 at 10:38 am

    Nothing has ever been able to simulate how a gun feels for me; i’ve shot a whole bunch of guns and NOTHING does anything to simulate it

  8. DemDoolies on November 6, 2021 at 10:39 am

    The argument that playing video games teaches one how to use a firearm is so asinine. If anything, the depictions of firearms in most FPS games would give players the wrong idea of how they actually function.

  9. Freshify on November 6, 2021 at 10:40 am

    "have you ever played a game that perfectly simulates what’s it’s like to shoot a fire arm"

  10. John Ekow on November 6, 2021 at 10:41 am

    God Of War is one of the most violent video games ever but it doesn’t teach me to go murder my whole family. It taught me that revenge isn’t going to make my life better.

  11. Skrev on November 6, 2021 at 10:42 am

    As a Christian myself, I love violent video games!

  12. The Chronicle Gamer on November 6, 2021 at 10:42 am

    Petition to reboot the GameCube?

  13. M3ndyys on November 6, 2021 at 10:43 am

    You could just change "Anti-Gamers" for Old people :/

    Plot twist: this video was an excuse for Act Man to show off his martial arts

  15. Kenan Muslic on November 6, 2021 at 10:44 am

    violent video games are bad but squid games and tiktok are ok lol

  16. Vendetta on November 6, 2021 at 10:45 am

    like the comment said. I’m a Christian also. But i Like Halo Call of Duty, Grand Theft auto,…… And Ya Im not gonna shoot anybody. The School shooters play videogames. But that’s not a cause. That’s just a thing they liked.

  17. John James on November 6, 2021 at 10:46 am

    To be fair a lot of problem people had with "No Russian" from CoD are pretty based. It was a literal mission that started with you committed an act of terrorism.

  18. Rhinotime 117 on November 6, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Just like watching porn doesn’t make you think about sex, lmfao!! Murica!!!

  19. astroSuperkoala on November 6, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Damn after playing destiny 2 i now know how to use space magic and turn into a magic electric wizard, shoot people with a flaming pistol, and turn into a missle

  20. Hollyleaf The Dragonborn on November 6, 2021 at 10:47 am

    A lot of these arguments center around one portion of a game so about one mission or so this causes a BIG crack on their argument because they are using selective bias to construct a argument that crumbles almost immediately

  21. Reclamation6 on November 6, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Mentioned Bible flock box but didn’t mention A Call for an uprising that makes video games look even worse

  22. Brandon Hart on November 6, 2021 at 10:48 am

    How are you gonna complain that mature games are too violent for kids yet buy your kids those games?

  23. Ho Lee Fuk on November 6, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Movies Books Theatre Pieces History in general dont cause violcence but video games do??? Like what the fuck

  24. Elliott on November 6, 2021 at 10:55 am

    The only link between violence and video games is that violent video games might make already violent people violent. Already. Violent. People.

  25. randy ruhland on November 6, 2021 at 10:56 am

    my grandpa took me to shoot cans in the forest and guns in shooters don’t feel like real gun

  26. Johan Mostert on November 6, 2021 at 10:56 am

    That is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard watchdogs is not teaching kids anything it’s just a friend him and it’s actually not real it doesn’t teach you anything why would you wanna spy on people that is weird!!

  27. Shady Onion on November 6, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Doomguy is CANONICALLY A CHRISTIAN

    So, in other words, doom is all good for christians

  28. Shrek Fan 1776 on November 6, 2021 at 10:58 am

    20:38 act like you’ve been there before Act-sama

  29. SB SBZ on November 6, 2021 at 11:00 am

    wait until they find out about postal 4 coming out.

  30. Luisquitslife on November 6, 2021 at 11:01 am

    I play battlefield and I once got to drive a cheiftain tank and I can say that it isn’t the same

  31. Sparky Nova on November 6, 2021 at 11:01 am

    "Grand Auto Theft" 😆😆

  32. HI. CH on November 6, 2021 at 11:03 am

    I played video games all my life and i killed a lot of ppl because of it it’s logical I’ve Trained to handle guns in COD and learned strategy in Desert storm 2 and got my drive License on GTA and actually learned how to fly in War thunder and i know how te detonated bombs in BF and how to storm a hose in R6 and the list still goes on , now am a dedicated killing machine in the SIMS

  33. The Tophat Man on November 6, 2021 at 11:05 am

    If ya think a game is to violent, dont play it problem solved. People have their own thoughts and ideas, just dont shit on others for having other thoughts that condridicts yours. Come one humans dont have a hive mind.

  34. manole iustin on November 6, 2021 at 11:06 am

    My dad was born in the 70 but is a cool dad
    He plays mario kart, halo, cs go with me and my friends

  35. some person on November 6, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Would you rather murder someone irl or just kill someone in call of duty

  36. Henry Franklin on November 6, 2021 at 11:07 am

    I have used many firearms, not just handguns, and no game I have ever played, even the ones at the arcade that have actual gun controllers feel anything like guns or even remotely similar.

  37. Villain in Glasses on November 6, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Fuck I wish I could learn from video games. I would be fukkin’ awesome.

    "Hey you’ve been wired into Street Fighter for like a week dude, you good?"
    "I know kung fu"

  38. Charlie Horse on November 6, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Step 1) Put age ratings on video games. (Already done? Cool.)
    Step 2) Educate parents to take responsibility for their own damn kids. (This is the hard part.)

  39. Dr.Doctor on November 6, 2021 at 11:08 am

    I live in the uk so I don’t have any firearms experience but when I got my airsoft gun I was not prepared on how to run with it or anything and had a lot more respect for my cod operator for being able to run with like 20kg of gear on him

  40. Tasteless words on November 6, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Thanks man we all needed that lmao

  41. Wrath on November 6, 2021 at 11:09 am

    16:22 I like how it feels he was a bit pissed off lmao 😂

  42. The Act Man on November 6, 2021 at 11:11 am

    I lost 30,000 games in the blink of an eye…. And the media just fucking watched.

    Share this video if you love gaming and you’re not a violent murderer <3

  43. Johan Mostert on November 6, 2021 at 11:11 am

    No

  44. Young Jaca on November 6, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Where you fucking kill the devil lol

  45. Ryan Stone on November 6, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Kids are gonna be exposed to this stuff someday. I’m going to tell my kids that it’s not real, and that they will need to know the difference between that and real life. Look at Japan, hell they play more games than we do and they don’t have the same problem with crime that we do. Fact check me but I think I’m right on that

  46. Kingvenom 777 on November 6, 2021 at 11:15 am

    i am a christian and i love doom

  47. Beetle on November 6, 2021 at 11:21 am

    Saying that video games cause violence is like saying you’ll get high from eating a pack of croutons.

  48. Tomo14 on November 6, 2021 at 11:22 am

    After I played minecraft with my friends I now support and are very good at Farming hundreds of livestock and trapping them in tight spaces

  49. Breckin Fowler on November 6, 2021 at 11:22 am

    Me and my dad play video games still together I’m glad my dad does play
