Does Online Gaming Violate Geneva Convention?

The Red Cross seems to think so:

Humanity are such fucking pussies

It’s a fucking video game! What happens in the game isn’t real.
This committee is waaaaay out of touch.

Is this really what charity money is going towards these days, stopping virtual avatars from being killed?


Six Hundred Million Gamers Are War Criminals

apparently they’re mad that when you down people in CoD or similar games, you HAVE to kill them.

Activision might actually have to put something new in their game next year instead of just covering its old shit up with other shit.

Ridiculous. This is like being sued for malpractice because we screwed up while playing Operation.

War has changed.
It’s not about nations, or ideologies.
It’s not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity.
It’s an endless series of proxy battles,
fought by 12 year olds and virtual characters.
War, and its vast consumption of virtual life,
has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction.
War has changed.
ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons,
use ID-tagged gear and DLC skins.
Perks inside their save files
enhance and regulate their actions.
Speed control… Information control…
Emotion control… Battlefield control.
Everything is monitored, and kept under control.
War has changed.
The age of deterrence is now the age of noobs,
averting catastrophe from killstreaks.
And he who controls the battlefield, controls the leaderboards.
War has changed.
When the battlefield is under total control,
war becomes entertainment.

Did the Daily Mail pick up an Onion article because C’MON…


If they didn’t rage quit every time they died, they’d now they would respawn

That poor dude me and my friend killed in Dark Souls after he invaded us… I had no idea :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

War, War is hell.

Surrender button sounds hilarious.

lmao anyone read the comments section

They might be on to something with that. I thought rage quitting was the same thing, though.

yeah, i thought the power button on the console was a surrender button

i loved this comment I read elsewhere:

Somewhere, Jack Thompson is smiling

Next up, Poker. It’s fraud because you’re lying to people for money. :rofl:

hahahahahaha wtf?!

But what does this do to Street Fighter tournaments…if Daigo/Tokido/Poongko/whomever comes over here and sons someone for $300 - is that an official act of war?

Land of the Free…sigh…

Wins thread.

and Halo isn’t affected, because you’re killing aliens. My head hurts

Well instead of killing people in online matches they can put in an option to take them as a PoW and after each round you can play a mini-game where you water-board them.
