    Maybe true, but todays video games sure don't help.
  2. Agreed, nor do movies or TV today help the situation like in action movies (which I love) in which the hero is blowing away people left and right and cracking jokes about it (body count in Arnie's 'Commando' with jokes). I'm just making the point that the entertainment we make reflects who we are not the other way around. It has an effect though, just like advertising as someone mentioned

    I fail to understand why anyone would see this as not true.

    I take it you've never had a conversation about humanity with 21st-century hipster?

    I agree with the champion of blood sport but when they make maps like in MW2 where you murder innocent people in a airport that aint right.

    I think the purpose of that mission was shear immersion, and it worked for some of us more RPGish types. I freaked out when I played that. For the *****s (most of the players) though, it was hilarious. and that scared me.
