Trump raises concerns about violence with video game reps, pols, critics

It seems whoever picked these titles went for more mainstream options, rather than something like Hatred, which, while ultra-violent, was so bad that few people ever played it.

Sanders offered no further detail on what exactly the arbitration involved, when it happened, or why it was resolved, and repeated Trump's denial of the 2006 extra-marital affair. It would be a more convincing argument if his administration hadn't been continually limiting people's access to and understanding of mental health, while simultaneously making it easier for the mentally ill to get guns. Others represent the Media Research Center, a video game distributor, a software company, along with the author of a book linking mass killings to violent video games.

Yet Trump is not alone in questioning the link between violent video games and mass shootings.

People in many other countries play the same video games and watch the same movies as in the USA, but they don't have anywhere near the level of mass shootings, she pointed out.

He said he talks about it with his children and will say "you know that's a video game right?"

One Democratic lawmaker who was not in attendance, however, derided Trump's effort, saying it overshadowed the real issue in their minds - seeking new restrictions on gun sales.

In the meeting the president and executives watched a short video that compiled violent clips from popular video games including Call of Duty, Fallout and Wolfenstein. I'm hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people's thoughts.

The meeting, which will see members of the Entertainment Software Association discussing video game violence with Trump, suffered from organizational issues from the outset.

Outlining the government's efforts to boost regional air connectivity, Choubey said much will hinge on oil prices remaining soft. He also admitted that the lack of land availability and land acqusition for creating airport infrastructure poses major hurdles.

Those who did join Trump said he appeared open-minded, seeking solutions from everyone - including executives from the video-game industry. That should come as no surprise, considering that when press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders first mentioned the meeting last week, game industry officials said they had no idea it was happening. The video was widely criticized by the community as anti-video game propaganda.

"Blaming video games for violence in the real world is no more productive than blaming the news media for bringing violent crime into our homes night after night", argues the ESA, the industry's trade group, in materials it provides online.

The White House had the video unlisted and showed it during the summit. "The president's approach of leaving no stone unturned is prudent, and similar meetings with the movie industry pertaining to gun violence on film should also be conducted".

Henson's not sure what the next step is following the White House meeting, but she's under the impression that there will be further conversations on the topic.

"Entertainment is distributed and consumed globally, but the U.S. has an exponentially higher level of gun violence than any other nation", Hewitt said.

Coming in at just over a minute and a half long, "Violence in Video Games" is now unlisted on YouTube - that hasn't stopped it from getting a rather joyfully disproportionate likes to dislikes ratio, though.

A fear of regulation previously has prompted video game makers to change their practices.

"Psychological studies purporting to show a connection between exposure to violent video games and harmful effects on children do not prove that such exposure causes minors to act aggressively", Scalia wrote.
