Fox Asks “Do You Believe Video Games Cause Murder?” 98% Say No; Data Supports

FOX POLL Violence vs Video Games

The FOX News public has spoken. In response to a poll put forth by FOX, 423,556 votes have been cast. 98% of these voters have said that they do not believe video games can be to blame for mass murders. Only 1% said yes while the remaining 1% were not sure. This should be no surprise since any fair amount of logic applied tells you that underlying mental issues and bad parenting are to cause for mass homicide incidents. Violent film, books, and video games are consumed by hundreds of millions of Americans and yet the murder rate continues to go lower and lower over time according to the FBI’s publicly released records.

In fact, if you do the research the release of PlayStation 2 marked a major crime rate drop which was dropped even lower once Grand Theft Auto 3 released for the system. Both of those events can be seen correlated with the FBI’s own data in the graphs shown below. Next time somebody tries to tell you that there are studies or facts to support this absurd claim, link to them to this post so they can get some factual data on the situation.

EA “Worst Company in America” and “$40 billion in lawsuit settlements” Despite Their Weak Half-Apology

Escapist magazine quoted as saying “With more than three-quarters of the vote, the videogame publisher absolutely crushed second-place finisher Bank of America.” in the vote for Worst Company in America, but EA Games would like us to think that given the pretext of Peter Moore’s weak, half-apology delivered by EA last friday that this poll means little or nothing to their image in the game industry. If only it were that simple, and if only that were true, then the world would be a better place, I would have my real Mass Effect ending, and I would actually pay for Xbox Live Gold.

Peter Moore would like us to think that “$40 billion in lawsuit settlements” pales in comparison to the crimes against humanity that Bank of America has placed upon the planet. Maybe he is right. After all Bank of America is still left standing after the disastrous global economic crash caused by the implosion of the housing market which BOA certainly played a major role in helping to occur (example: by providing robo-signed loans to people they never even met on contracts they never even saw).

But back on topic, is Electronic Arts, EA Games, EA Sports “$40 billion in lawsuit settlements” truly similar to the New York Yankees as Moore puts it? Or perhaps they are indeed much more similar to Bank of America’s prime evil empire, let’s take a closer look.

Both companies cause the industry around them to change based on the actions that they take. Micro-transactions, DLC instead of full expansions, Online Pass, always-online “DRM”, borderline false advertising (shouts out to DICE), and bullying developers with corporate pressure (hey BioWare). Let’s just stop there before we go too far to turn back. Bank of America may have deserved this disgraceful award a lot more than EA, but Peter Moore’s apology needs to be more than just words on the internet to prepare us for an experience in bad Public Relations.

Life’s message that the world is trying to tell us, is to learn from our mistakes and leave the old ways of trickery behind. Next Gen has caused many publishers to slim down the amount of projects they are making and teams they are employing. If behemoth publisher EA wants to have a good image again and truly satisfy its customers the way it could and the way it should, Next Gen needs to be taken not just as a business but an art form that is profitable when the fans are happy. I’ll leave it at that until it becomes necessary to specifically explain why companies keep falling flat on their face trying to achieve brand loyalty.
