Mass shootings in 2019 in countries that play a lot of video games
@thomasfuchs there's a kid from argentina that won 900k US$ in a fortnite tournament, and he had to "pay" about 30% to the local revenue service because taxes.
yet still, he hasn't shot anyone.
@pinkprius given the current state of the country, i'd firmly say: No.
@thomasfuchs You mean it's not video games?
I wonder what it could be?
@Jason_Dodd it’s a mystery, we’ll never know!
@thomasfuchs It's impossible to know. And it's unstoppable. Just ask the leaders from the only country in the world where it's routine.
@thomasfuchs What I wonder always is this: there's a lot of violent/revenge movies, some of which take a semi-first-person perspective (the Equalizer, Olympus has fallen, basically any recent Liam Neeson movie, ...). Yeah, the hero fights the bad guys isn't that's the same premise as in video games? Hence, where's the difference? Why no talk about movies ever ? Could it be the lobby for movies e in the US being much bigger than the US lobby for making video games....?? 🤔
@dennis They did blame movies for a long time (and Rock’n’Roll music before that). They just pick the most popular form of entertainment; that’s literally the only reason.
@thomasfuchs you could state that 🇫🇷 police commited mass shooting in 2019.
