I think some of the points are valid. In America there is a culture of celebrity narcissism. I don't know if violent video games should be compared to junk food.

What would you think of a less violent or even non violent Mass Effect game that is not aimed at the hardcore sci fi fan audience?

A Mass Effect type game meant to give casual and non gamers an optimistic picture of humanity's future. A video game about discovery and first contact. A game with many interesting and cool looking aliens to meet and ancient mysteries to unfold.

The enemies would probably have to be synthetics.

I'm gonna write this off as spam. Recent account, nonsensical, links that don't work, and wtf does how someone dresses have to do with anything? Are we in Downton Abbey or something?

But we can't lock it yet, we first have to show people who don't care about video games that video games can be wholesome!

We need to develop a game where your goal is to be as nice as possible. Stepping on an ant is an instant game over.

I propose we use this thread to establish a full mathematical proof of why my milkshake does, in fact, bring all the boys to the yard.

Sneezing on the face of an infant automatically invokes permadeath for that character.

@the_shpydar : I am interesting in buying the rights to adapt your theory into a pretentious art film.

@gcunit Here you go:

The OP (accidentally?) made the mistake of making the links secure, by adding an 's' after http, when there was no need for that, so I simply removed the s, and then the links actually do work.

But it's a rather stupid, short-sighted story opinion/view from a dumb, biased woman, though, who probably never even played a video game in her entire life, and as such heaps all the more gritty ones/more adult-oriented ones together as "unhealthy electronic entertainment".

And besides, we all know that it's only the feeble-minded that get affected to such a degree by playing violent video games, that it actually inspires them to re-enact such stuff in real life. Most of us who play war games or fighting games, just live in that moment, and then move on with our daily lives once the console is switched off again...

@ThanosReXXX Reminds me of the moral panic over Mass Effect 1. Media had folks thinking it was an alien copulation simulator.

@HobbitGamer Really? Mainstream media? Or some smaller stations/channels?
I'll probably have to label that "only in America", because there was none of that kind of nonsense over here...

@HobbitGamer That can go right into the same garbage disposal as "violent video games create violent behavior in people"...
