Je trouve cette vidéo scandaleuse et orientée ! 1 : tous ces enfants jouent à des jeux interdits au moins de 18 ans (donc là il y a déjà un problème) 2 : C'est un almagame facile, alors que les enfants font toujours des tête "exagérées" quand ils se concentrent (ex : dessin, musique etc..) 3 : Où sont les final fantasy, les zelda, les oddworld ? Vous savez quoi ? le jeu vidéo est devenu un média fort, où certain commencent à faire passer des idées révolutionnaire, et ça ne plait pas aux puritains qui préfèrent faire passer les jeux pour quelque chose de violent et d'abrutissant... Belle mentalité... je vous rappelle qu'on disait la même chose des BD dans les années 50-60... * ** * It's a scandalous video ! 1 : all of games which are playing are for Mature (there are already a problem) 2 : it's too easy, look at the kids when they concentrate themselves (drawing, music) it's the same 3 : Where are Final fantasy, Zelda, Oddworld ? You know what ? Video games are become a strong mass media, where some creators began to preach revolutionnary ideas, and puritains are chocked about that, so they said that games are violent, dangerous... I remain you that in the 50's, 60's they had said the same things about comics...

Pretty mainstream. Normal kids showing normal reactions. A bit like me when I started playing Pong 30 years ago. Maybe I was cursing more. If you want to see some real angry gamers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG42S_PmRs4

yes video games have taken a lot of outdoor real life adventure out of a child's life. The opportunity to engage a child's imagination has been all but destroyed due to the emergence of video games. Thats after the TV full frontal assault and the plastic celebrity dolls and action figures have done their damage bottom line is that If the parents are to busy living their own life and dont MAKE the time to encourage their children to do other things. The child will follow the path of least resistance. Video games are real easy and very available I have 2 daughters that age (10 and 13) and i let them play VGs for a little while every day... and they look like that. and then i encourage them to find something outdoors or crafty indoors to do and they look like that while their doing those things. hopeless video if you are hoping to convince people of the evils of gaming. There has been cases of people dieing while online gaming.. due to dehydration, and other reasons, now that would make for a shocking vid. And how about the cases of families being destroyed due to the gameing addiction of adults. the only distressing image was of the girl with no expression. But i would make the horrible assumption that she looks like that all the time what ever she is doing. A child's passion for real life is directly affected by the parent's passion for the childs real life.
