President Obama doesn’t play Call of Duty


Today President Obama asked Congress to fund a study on the affects of Violent Video Games and media images.  Ten million dollars was reportedly the amount of funding in question.  over 20 new executive orders on Gun Control were also proposed during the meeting.

It looks like the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) will be spearheading the investigation.  Most will look at this as another waste of taxpayer dollars.  I tend to disagree as this issue has been in the media for an extended period of time and an end all be all investigation by the CDC could help to finally put the issue to rest.

The thousands of private studies done on this issue fail to connect Video Game violence to real world cases of violent crimes.  After all Hitler never even got to play Call of Duty and would probably take offense to Nazi Zombies.  However, think about it maybe juust maybe that’s what lost Germany the war.  The most brilliant scientific minds of the past century created an Xbox in 1944 and the Reich was too busy blowing AI U.S. and Russian troops away to deal with the real troops forcing them into submission..

I split time between games journalism and making video games. My love of it’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), fitness and my family define me otherwise.
