    I didn't get a chance to watch it but reading the comments... did someone diss Abe? That's... that's just too far.

    I am also going to add that even if video games didn't exist we would still have all this violence. Getting rid of video games would only piss a lot of people and get rid of one argument for why violent things happen. We are a violent society, we just need to learn how to reduce the amount of violence in the world.

    "you've basically got no excuse not to sit down and sort out the inconvenient truths from the tiresome scaremongering" No...I have an excuse. I don't give a shit anymore.

    I think someone should make a movie detailing how hurt we are as gamers by all of the backlash. There are a lot worse things going on in the world than violent video games... How about the fact that men and women are dying for a war that most people believe shouldn't be happening? How about the fact that there was recent case in which a child molester got less than 2 years for molesting several children? How about all of the people who are losing their homes due to the fact that the company they worked for suddenly decided to outsource operations to overseas? How about the fact that the ice caps are melting and the habitat of northern wildlife is shrinking at an alarming rate which has been proven to have an affect on the rest of us, while most people run around with their eyes closed and their fingers in their ears? But nope. Video games are the cash-cow when it comes to pointing fingers. Hell, if we got rid of them, you'd think that all of our problems would be solved. No more murder simulators to corrupt the youth into blowing up buildings and shooting up high schools. Cause everything else in the world is just peachy keen, ain't it?

    I thought the title said watch MORTAL Kombat free online.

    Alright, I only have one simple question about this film that I want to ask the film makers. Why are we talking about children as the real victims? I can understand the topic of violent video games but why is the topic of children the main focus? If we're to talk about violent video games, should we not discuss violent films, vulgar literature, pornography, liquor, tobacco, or a variety of other drugs? All of these materials can be accessed by the youth, sad as it may be, but somehow the focus on the interactive entertainment industry is getting the brunt of the attacks? In other news, I may just watch this film. I could use a couple of laughs but I sure don't need the tears for realizing that people truly follow the logic of this tripe.

    Oh, dammit. The SMT logo was in the trailer! Does that mean the mainstream media has finally noticed the series? Oh, well. I can't really be bothered to watch the entire movie.

    Yeah, pass. any type of severely limited and highly incorrect "scientific basis" that these ****ing things find is also easily reputed by the same damn thing that they cling to: science. Besides, the only valid point they can bring up is that all female video game characters look like whores which they do... but then again, so do women in movies and television. Whatever, either two things will happen to video games: they'll either gain legitimacy like books and movies did before it, or continue with it's image as is and go the way of the North American comic book industry. Either way, I gave up caring what others thought of my "hobby" recently when I remembered that I play video games because I enjoy it, not out of a need to be legitimized by backward ass people who refuse to change their views and remain ignorant of things they CHOOSE not to understand.

    They can take away our video games. They can insinuate that video games caused 9/11. They can even slant the truth and attempt to turn unwitting civilians against us. But they do not. Diss. Abe.

    Watch it for free? ya only if you live in the states. Hulu isn't available outside the US. SO the rest of us have to pay. Might want to change. Back to the article, sounds interesting, but after watching the trailer, I still come to same conclusion, it's up to the parents to decide what their kids play. The government shouldn't punish the millions of people who play video games for what a couple people do. Yes it is a tragic thing when people go on shooting sprees. But video games are either not a cause at all or they are just one reason out of many. I also find it funny how movies aren't subjected to the same criticism. They are in general more violent and depictive then video games. While I know video games are interactive (and that is a difference) People seem to ignore other factors when dealing with violent people, including social surroundings, family, upbringing etc.

    Except those of us that watched it already KNOW it to be vacuous tosh of the highest(lowest?) order with little to no interest in actually getting to the bottom of ANY debate. Sadly, I doubt either any proponent of gaming OR JT and Co will be pleased with how this one turned out. It's just really light, really pointless and barely scratches the surface in a coffee table book kind of bloody way. Sure, watch it to buzz off seeing a few familiar faces from the world of gaming(and seeing craz Jack on another roll)and, yes, there are a few laughable quotes in their but is it worth a couple of hours of your life and valuable gaming time to find out? Not for me-normally I'd be with GR on this but as the final product is worse in it's own field than Damnation was as a game I really, cannot say to anyone with a clear head to bother watching this claptrap. then again when I 3watched it it was at a screening in Italy and all we wanted to do was get out of this tiny press theatre that must have been 50 degrees celcius! Watching Ole Jack whilst sweating out that afternoons Saltimbocca(scuse my Italian!) isn't a great memory!
