US president Donald Trump opened today's meeting with representatives and critics of the videogame industry by playing "a montage of clips of various violent videogames," according to this Washington Post report.

The clip, which can be seen below, includes scenes from Call of Duty games, Dead by Daylight, Sniper Elite 4, and The Evil Within. Rep. Vicky Hartzler told the paper that Trump asked other attendees, "This is violent, isn't it?" while it played. The meeting was described by Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council as "respectful but contentious."

Her organization believes that a "steady diet of media violence is having a corrosive effect on our culture," while game industry executives maintained that there was no connection between violent media and violent behavior in the real world.




No doubt Trump is trying to pretend that video games are responsible for mass shootings.

It's actually embarrassing that he would even try to make this connection. There are only a handful of cases where a kid has murdered someone directly because of a game they played.

The dislikes on the video are hilarious though :lol:

Hilaire.

I be the gamesplaying lobby substantially outvotes the NRA. Isnt this a form of gun control in virtual worlds? Blame the player not the game. So all teenagers are doing it to themselves.... young people are to blame....
