Moral Kombat: The Documentary

Independent filmmaker Spencer Halpin, in partnership with our favorite anti-video games lawyer Jack Thompson, has recently produced a documentary titled "Moral Kombat" that takes a look at video game violence and the terrifying effects it has on young people today. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think the current video game rating system is enforced strickly enough to keep our kids from playing these violent games, or should other measures be taken to protect our children's innocence?

  • I find it ironic that those who criticize violence in video games, tv, and movies are often the same people who are eager to fund and expand the U.S. military & defense infrastructure. They are also the same people who are eager to take our country to war. It's just inconsistent. Maybe their message actually is, "Violence belongs to grown-ups, not kids. Let us worry about blowing sh*t up and killing people."

  • You know, it sickens me that nobody in this country can just accept fault for anything.
    I've got news for you: I'm 22 years old and I've been playing video games since I was 5. 17 freakin' years... I've never had any desire to commit an act of violence nor do I lose my temper on a regular basis, and my favorite video games are HORRIFICALLY violent. I'd say my first experience with REAL video game violence probably came when I was 7 or so and I first played Street Fighter II in the arcades. Then I moved on to Mortal Kombat, and it was pretty much all down hill from there.
    My point is, though my parents CONSTANTLY harped their anti-violence crap at me and spouted the same garbage these wastes of funding preach with their "studies", I turned out to be a healthy, well-adjusted individual. Most of us do, in fact... so why are they constantly trying to sink violence in video games?
    Maybe if parents would quit trying to point the finger at everything else instead of at themselves when they've failed as a parent, this kind of stuff would quit happening.
    Need I remind you guys the exact kind of thing has happend in this country before: It was called the "Salem Witch Trials". Think about that.
