Comments from Youtube

Glink : Chris, lets be honest, this video was just an excuse to show off your Halo 3 gameplay. We get it.

Alex Holly : I heard about this really violet game where you murder an army then a royal family. It's been around for ages and has loads of players. This sick murder sim game called Chess needs to be banned immediately.

Rorydoesnothinginlife : Just played Shovel Knight, now I'm going on a killing spree with nothing but a shovel and stealing people's gold & jewels

The Flying Kalamari : Tetris taught me how to use a sniper rifle

racer164 : Yes super smash bros has taught me how to load a gun

SomeBlackGuy : miss me with that being alive shit

WOKEN'T : You know, I've played _Civilization_ off and on for like 22 years now, and I've never *once* had the urge to raise and equip an army and invade another country. Damn, what the hell's wrong with me?

2006 Impreza : And not to mention racing games that can turn dumb kids into car enthusiasts, which is what happened to me

Cole Dewitt : Ive made so many friends playing games i actually met one of my best friends at school when i made a Age of Empires joke


Just An Edit : _Yesterday I was playing Angry Birds and I managed to get to this one level that I couldn't complete. I kept trying it over and over yet I didn't manage to finish the level and getting that one last Hypochromic Anemic and limbless Swine._ _I remembered spending my whole afternoon trying to complete it yet I had no idea how to do so. It got me angry so what I did was took a deep breath, stepped back to think of how to calm down._ *Then I went on a murderous rampage and started molesting children on Pictochat.*

Fearghus Keitz : It’s odd that Ben Shapiro let that cancerous Walsh opinion piece out.

EliasLevin : I wonder if these people can find if there is something wrong even with *Kirby games*

Daniel S : "the army uses video games to desensitize soldiers" Yes, because no US soldier has ever gotten PTSD while during or recovery from their time in combat.

Maladjester : Matt Walsh is an odious ideological hobgoblin endlessly regurgitating the same tired lines about the evils of literally everything that isn't Christianity. He's either too stupid to understand or too unethical to care that it works equally well in reverse: "This is where some religious apologists devolve into incoherence. The Bible is their sacred cow because people are desperate to justify wasting their energy on something that doesn't exist. So they'll often pretend there's nothing stupid about their religion at all. They'll say something silly like: "All the other religions are pretend! It's just mine that's real! It's not turning me into an ideologue!" " You know why I don't milk that shit for clicks twice a week? Unlike Walsh, for whom "Christian values" means estimating the dollar value of shitting on non-believers, I have the integrity to acknowledge religion does good, and all who believe are not automatically idiots.

I can't think of a username : Silly Matt, I play mount and blades I don't kill people, I command others to kill people

427Arbok : These articles just make the Right sound like such a good thing. And they wonder why it's growing? I'm going to go save some animals in the wilderness, stop deadly diseases, and secure the Lebensraum, as are all apparently things that I, as a conservative, do on a daily basis. I'm also going to join a massive gun-orgy on the street later, because I'm also a Satan-worshiping degenerate, according to people further right than me. I'm not gonna lie, if being a gamer made me any of the things the media claimed, I'd have a much more interesting life. Would be a great subject for a story... or a video game. Yeah, that'd be a great storyline. Imagine that. You play as like a turbo-half-demon-psuedonazi on a conquest to save mankind from itself while assuring that your own kind didn't get wiped-off the Earth. It could even be a real meta commentary on societal perceptions and how they compare with reality. Brb in 20 years, I have to go win Game of the Year 2038.

Joyful Dude : I just wanna say this: I’m a Christian. DOOM is one of my favorite games. So eat shit people who say video games cause violence. :D

Awad Shakoor : 6:32 protecting the country by sacrificing your life and *killing people* must logically fall under the "worse category"

TallGlassofWater : The sun gives you skin cancer, therefore, the sun encourages death. #SunGate

Luniz Moonz : PC master race, console Exlusive, and mobile gaming race unite!!!

Soul Essence : You can insult plants versus zombies You can insult space invaders But when you insult my Splatoon You've taken it too far Prepare for the next great turf war, guy-who-wrote-the-article-around-4:30

5persondude : "Restoration of Natural Harmony" = Far-Right So they're saying that the Far-Right are the good guys? Got it, thanks MSM!

P.O.M. 2B3hM : Interesting. After watching this, i realize my opinion was uninformed. I always wanted to say, well... the media is exagerating the impact, but i cant imagine there isnt an impact at all, very similar to one of the arguments you addressed. Your clear explanation helped me see that often the impacts i was thinking about, are things it really doesn't make sense to blame on the games themselves. So, its a common occurance for kids, toddlers through teens, to accidentally shoot themselves or others when they find a gun and decide to play with it. Should those guns have been accesable? No. However, instead of stopping there, i noticed that most of the time it is a boy, and stats of these shootings, regardless of the source, all seem to suport that. From there, trying to come up with an argument for the type of oposition who says there is absolutely no negative impact, i came to the conclusion that this must be from exposure to guns in video games, which still are a much bigger thing for boys, making them more likely than girls to see a gun as something familar that you can play with without being hurt. I know its not a perfect analogy, but some people die after they are admitted to a hospital, and sometimes it has more to do with medical mistakes than the patients health, and there arent tons of people saying we need to tare them down. Some toddlers see violent video games, and then find a gun and pick it up because they associate it with toys, and then someone dies. For me to say therefore lets destroy all the video games, just isnt a legit conclusion. Video games are not responsible for loaded guns being left on tables,or for parents who dont bother to control what their kid sees, in a similar way to hospitals in general not being responsible for the surgeon who cheated his way through med school and performed an operation that killed someone. Institutions have policies to monitor employees, but they cant stop the ones who are willing to lie and cheat to not get caught. Video games tell you when they are not suitable for kids, as u mentioned, but they cant control the mother who buys a game without even reading the description, and then later complains that she had no idea it was so violent. Ug, moving on. Any more on that and i might confuse myself. As a non gamer, you are right to say i dont understand what the gamers are getting from it. When i get caught up having arguments with people who are only interested in 'winning' i often feel backed into a corner, and end up making unsound arguments, or pushing a point much farther than it is capable of going because they are using unfair tactics, so why shouldnt i.? I need to stop that, because one of these days it will cripple my ability to have serious conversation. So... Thank you for this video. :)

zeizz : I remember playing wii games with my siblings, parents, cousins and friends. Some of my best memories of my childhood. BUT OH NO, the wii tennis turned me into a serial killer

Allen Smithee : 12:00 violent sports increase violent habits and tendency, it is time to put and end to all violent sports, only government trained people can be allowed to be violent.

Praesidio : I love your roommate, he’s fuckin amazing. Too funny lmao.

A Mad Lad : Video game apologists bahahahaha

Doctor Schnabel : P L A N T S V S M E X I C A N S

P_Duyd : this been existing for years bequese adults being stupid is something of every time

vinayak rohatgi : this is probably a little late but ........ death toll by sun (source bbc,google) :estimated to 60,000/year death toll by games (source google) :estimated to 100/year

Kai Laine : Pokémon promotes animal abuse and mugging people for money 😒

Razing Shredder : I remember playing gauntlet with my dad on the ps2. He never plugged the controller in for the first year playing the game “together” with him. I knew he did that but I didn’t mind. Then the next year hit. He plugged me in. Started a new game and beat the entire game in two days. Night and day. I was 6 at the time man. The thought that my father let his own child go through sleep deprivation to spend quality time with him. I love it. This is why I love video games because of these moments. When I finally got an 360 I got black ops two. I played through the campaign and asked my dad to play the local multiplayer with me. He said sure. He picked the biggest gun we set it to the maximum amount of bots and went in. He sat there for weeks playing the game. These times are the best time that I can connect to someone. Met my two best friends through our passions. One of them was video games. To think that all these people are saying that video games make people criminals is absurd. I played doom with one of my friends. And just in the opening we sat on the edge of my bed in excited. Then the title card hit and we were hyped man. I love videos games. Nothing can take away from my experiences with them. No left or right wing will stop me. What can they do? Complain.

Jaiya Papaya : That 'bonding' segment hit me deep, man. Well said

Sneakstr : I as a right winger have to tell you one of our biggest goals is splash our paint on the map

George Mdzeluri : It’s funny because splatoon’s turf war is a fun sport for the inklings 200,000 years in the future and Zelda is literally fighting Ganon for 100 years in breath of the wild until link arrives as a reinforcement to help.

MysteriousTomJenkins : "It used to cost millions of dollars to turn people into killers, now with just $60 your kids become them." I played a lot of Skyrim, I used a bow a lot, I liked being a stealthy archer, being a successful stealthy assassin was fun to me. Based on what was showed in this video, apparently that trained me to be a killer, okay then lets see how I do! Oh yeah, recently I found a bow in my sister's car, she is a LARPer so that bow is used to shoot foam tipped arrows. I was playing around with it and when I drew the string to pretend to shoot an arrow the string ran right across the bare skin of my arm and it fucking hurt. Skyrim trained me to be a master assassin with a bow? Apparently not when I can't even properly pretend to shoot an arrow from a bow.

patrikcath : Beep boop Orange man best Video games satanic Gamers = serial killers

Jack Lack : Chess glorifies war/murder. Playing chess will turn you into a blood thirsty Warlord.

Jordulous : Idubbbz and filthy frank had a baby.

Carter Quinn : "It took 75 years to teach our soldiers to kill, now, $60" isn't basic training 10 weeks for the army? I'm just saying

todd howard : When i was 4-5 i played waw

Dawson Pierce : 10:46 Whatever happened to pong? XD ***** please, if we were still playing pong people wouldn't be programming the future XD

]: : *Squid children fighting over what color to paint the floor is an evil brainwashing tool.*

Sireth : That video of Glenn Beck saying video games are used to desensitize soldiers severely irritates me. First off, they're not used by the military for desensitization, they're used because they can simulate combat scenarios. Even before video games, soldiers would play table top war games for the same reason. Also, if they were supposed to desensitize them, then they failed because I've read articles written by military experts who've seen soldiers play games, then go into combat, and completely lose their shit because virtual violence and real violence obviously aren't the same thing. The media are so quick to point the finger at games, music, and movies. Well, what about all the war footage shown on their programs? Oh wait, they can't blame that because that goes against their agenda of being pro-war so, they brush that off completely. Fuck these assholes.

Artyom Saveli : Everyday I hear another one of these (Anti-video game) arguments is another aneurysm for me to endure.

Glitched Recordings : This video was centered around Chris showing us his mad Halo skills. The topics were secondary.

Where TAB : Tetris turned me into a hardcore serial killer

Post Disclosure World : Does paintball also lead to serial killers? Just curious.
