"We want to promote non-discrimination, non-violence, and peace among people. This doesn't match with video games, which are about violence, explosions, and killing [...] And there were have to draw a clear line."

-International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.

For those of you wondering, this man is actually being serious.

I know, I know. I'm just summing up my reaction to that article is all. I don't really care what he thinks about video games because he's obviously never taken the time to actually observe the video game community.

You are right. Videogames are made for fun, not for criminal stuff...

I mean really. When has the argument 'video games cause people to kill other people' ever stuck to the wall?

The answer? Never.

Indeed. The journalists are doing this just for money and no one criticizes them, also politicians and/or publicly known people. Woe to them, if they ban videogames and consoles ...

It's just a discussion of whether or not to put eSports in the Olympics, more than anything. I just don't like the fact that people still think all games are violent.

I know. And I'm sorry about that. They also attacked Assassin's Creed after they arrested a suspect terrorist here in Italy and found gameplay videos of AC:Unity, marking them as "Louvre terrorist attack simulator". What a fucking chaos...

Tch.

I'd put my reaction down in more detail, but I can't put the right level of scorn into text.
