Is this real life?

...Did they seriously just name Splatoon?

I can't think of anything that's fueling the rise of extreme ideologies more than the sensationalist news outlets (as in all of them) that get spread throughout social media to those most inclined to agree with and absorb their dire content. Here the Guardian is accusing others of "fueling the far right" with an article designed to stoke the flames they're complaining about.

It can be very hard not to hate people sometimes.

The first thing that needs to be said is that the Guardian is complete garbage, though they can be un-ironically entertaining. Second, no, video games aren't fueling the rise of the far right. The far left is fueling the rise of the far right and vise versa.

Check out my art blog:

To be honest this is when SJW go full stupid.

One of the most important things to learn about reading news is that if it's under an "opinion" section and not by the actual newspaper/journalism staff then it can be completely ignored. It's the equivalent of a person standing on a soapbox in the street and just ranting and/or rambling about some inane topic.

To quote the Simpsons, "Just don't look."

Not even worth discussing.

Wow what next? Are they gonna accuse video games of gun violence in hopes of saving their dying viewership? Oh wait...

And then people wonder how people like Trump gain such traction with his cries of "fake news!"


"We hold these truths t-be self-ful evident. All men and women created by the.. Go-you know the.. you know the thing!" - Joe Biden

Well that's funny, I've always thought that the AAA gaming demographic tended to lean liberal ...

Most people here or on ResetERA don't seem to be a fan of Trump, the Republicans or the alt-right ... 

Edit: The Guardian is the liberal equivalent of Fox News ...

This is the funniest thing I read all day.

Also today I learned that Mario, Zelda and Splatoon are far right games that inspired Nazis.
