...Really? It seems as if people like to target video games for the stupidest of reasons.
It's not as if he skins the Tanooki to gain the suit.
Sigh.

Anyway, this is just one example.
Discuss discrimination about computer and video games here.

That's Bullshit! It's just a suit, people, especially over portective parents blame video games for everything. Yes, it sometimes encouarges violence. Yes, somtimes it encourages morons to join the army in an attempt to do "quick scopes" in real life and think it's cool, but in no way does this even encouarge wearing animal fur in the slightest. Even if it did, then so what? If people want to wear animal furs then there's nothing wrong with that. Not in my eyes anyway. May hurt animal lovers, but there'll always be that little thing the hurts people. It's just an excuse to bitch about things.

Exactly. And as you said, it's only 'sometimes'. It's not like everybody decided to run around and eat pills that they found on the floor when they played Pacman, nor can I see anybody who's inclined to stomp on turtles or tried to make cars crash using bananas.

Essentially, people want to blame something. Videogames are an easy target.
People only like videogames if they're promoting 'family fun' or some other bullshit like that lol.

This fail right there reminds me of a certain AVGN video from 09:30 onwards for some odd reason. I wonder why...?

Aren't we free? We are allowed to play video games all we want, video games do not influence us. PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE DO! I get my style from my brother, I like video games because of him. I am not confident about a lot of things because of the untrusted. I feel abandoned because my parents never spent time with me. I feel like I get judged all the time for something I never mean to do or they just do not get my personality.

Video games do not make people act out, people themselves do.
Ever hear 'video games rot your brains' If that were true my brains must be mush by now. =|

People who have never played a video game under the type of genre that suits their style or interest then they must not know a thing.

Video games are the world now, if their against video games, their against the world.

Well said. Sadly, people like to blame anything for their own errors. Videogames are a pretty easy target (probably because of the stereotypes that cling to people who play videogames). The worst thing that a game can do is make you a bit annoyed, but it's no indication of a crazy mudering spree that's about to happen or anything.

Slightly off topic but there were people who claimed that the Harry Potter franchise was making kids evil...so yeah, people are willing to blame some bloody stupid things.
