Glenn Beck geeft videogames de schuld van alles

Another week, another conservative with an opinion on videogames… Glenn Beck, een conservatieve tv-presentator lichte in zijn programma op ‘The Blaze’,een onafhankelijk tv-netwerk, zijn (weinig) verrassende visie op videogames toe. Call of Duty krijgt de schuld van tienerzelfmoord en door Watch_Dogs te spelen weten we binnenkort allemaal hoe we een ATM moeten hacken(was het maar zo’n feest).

Hij zegt onder andere:

“The idea here is they are teaching you to hack and then become the ultimate voyeur in other people’s lives, including their bedrooms, by hacking into their phones and everything,” Beck said during a segment on violence in video games. Beck noted earlier on in the show that game series’ Call of Duty had been said to teach the perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks how to shoot to kill.

“This game is teaching you to hack into whatever is docked in your bedroom. What the heck is wrong with us? What are we thinking? We are inviting this into our home and our lives. We are teaching our kids for entertainment purposes,”

Allemaal parels van wijsheid dus en onderstaande videofragment zit er propvol mee.
