I didn't like this at all. the beginning was pretty funny but the phonecall scene...ghuuu
Satire; most people won't get it.
Julian Smith is always good for a laugh.
Lol at people being offended by this! It's a good thing nobody here played the airport scene in Modern Warfare II! It's also pretty good that not one of these gamers has ever touched the Resident Evil and Dead Space trilogies! But I'm ESPECIALLY glad that the Grand Theft Auto and Gears of War games are so unpopular and underplayed in this community!
hmm.. what did i just see?.. tho i can see the humor in it.. but it didnt get my FULL attention to laugh out loud.. but still its not bad.. not the WORST things i've seen.
Think about it though. People are stereotyping gamers, and now we're givin them a taste of what we're going through. I'm hoping videogame nazi's dont get a hold of this though
I think i get the message, they are trying to communicate the idea that is not our environment alone that makes us violent but the inherent violence that dwells within all humans.
Games in themselves cant make us violent cause they are tools for entertainment just like a computer isn't bad unless you use it for that purpose. Although I have to admit there are some games that were designed with a sadistic mindset behind them, games like Manhunt or GTO most be included in this category. These are games that aren't good for the developing minds of children who are still being raised as to what they are going to become.
But that's why we have parents and mentors who are there to rear us and teach us on the ways of life, sadly not everyone has access to people that can help them become better human beings.
Most of the problems of all humans come from the fulfillment of innate desires in twisted and devious ways.
Wow... do people here even go outside and socialize? Apparently satire is something half you "proud" gamers are unaware of unless it says so on a title?
How idiotic can you be to think this is a real PSA announcement.
guys if youve watched any of his videos then you know this is his kind of humor...................and i thought it was hilarious .
that was stupid
Pretty funny, it got a couple good chuckles out of me.
yea, can so see how that was do to video games (sarcasm). The last bit was wasn't really funny, just stupid.
