If throwing a puck on some ice, or throwing a dart, or throwing a frisbee are sports, then pretty much anything can be a sport.

That's beside the point, though.  The point is agreeing to do something then cowardly not doing it because public opinion shifted ever so slightly (has the public's opinion of video games shifted recently?  Literally everyone I've talked to thinks this is BS.  Granted, none of them are tv executives or soccer moms)

That's because gamer women are still too young to be 'soccer moms'. When the generations pass, this will be ridiculous. Because everyone will be a some sort of a gamer when young.

The people who haven't played any new high tech games in their lives are still in charge at lot of high places, lol. Think about that. Just when the young gamers today become grandpas and grandmas it will have an effect, and that generation will also get in in big positions.

Social media; facebook, you tube, instagram, twitter...etc is still too young for the world to get used to.

it's called e-sports, so. For comparison: I don't consider chess, strictly speaking, a sport.

...and that's the Nintendo section.

This is like taking down the Beatles albums and keeping up the Charles Manson posters.

So much stupid in this country. Maybe we need to start multiplying votes by IQ points.

Too bad I can't 'like' this three or four times!  I gave them a title--SFA (stupid fucking americans)--and they are legion!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Years ago a comedian had a bit about making stupid people wear signs around their necks so save time. "Excuse me, sir, can you tell me how to get to the... Oh, I'm sorry... I didn't see your sign."

Now they have the courtesy to identify themselves by wearing red hats.

I don't play violent video games.  But when I was a child back in the 60s, we watched violent TV shows and played violent games among ourselves.  We whacked each other with wooden swords. Shot each other with cap guns, and played a game where whoever picked up the football was attacked by everyone else.  It was called "Smear The Queer".

And none of us did anything violent in later years...  Violent games do not make violent people.

i had a cap gun too, of course.  But the caps ran out too quick!  Caused me to shoot up dozens of WalMarts, not!
