The media has always painted video games, and video game culture as violent. They ignore the nice, and just general fun, and focus solely on the violence because that makes people upset, and makes a great headline. People are who don’t understand something, and their only exposure to that something is violent, will perceive it as violent.
In the “Video Game” documentary on Netflix, there’s a part where people within the gaming industry talk about the stigma the media paints them in, and as Peter Molyneux said it, if you take someone who has never watched a movie in their entire lives, sit them down in a theater, and have them watch all the “Saw” movies, and then ask them, “SO! What do you think about cinema?” Their response is going to be “it’s the most disgusting, grotesque, and violent thing they have ever witnessed.” And they will be revulsed by the very idea of it.
But you know that’s not true, and I know that’s not true. We all know that movies can be beautiful, and exciting, and even a learning experience,and in the same way, so can video games. The problem is that these people don’t play videos games. They don’t know them, and all they ever see is “ALL VIDEO GAMES CAUSE VIOLENCE.” with an accompanying video with a super violent FPS, or Horror game, and then in their opinion, they don’t need to do any more research.
Okay, I’m done.
