Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

September 9, 2008 -

Another in an irregular - but all too frequent - series:

This morning comes word that 20-year-old Army PFC Tan Quoc Ngo was killed in an August 27th ambush in Afghanistan.

As reported by a lengthy obituary on Oregon Live, Ngo's parents were refugees from Vietnam. Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski was among those who attended the young man's funeral on Friday. From the news coverage:

He liked nothing better than playing pickup basketball or football, or playing cards with friends in his Beaverton neighborhood... He also liked video games, including Grand Theft Auto and Halo...

GP: Why do we do this? The gamer generation is much maligned these days. With so many gamers currently serving in U.S. military forces around the world, GamePolitics makes it a point to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Thanks to: Reader Kojiro for the link.

Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Nintendo is indeed selling SOME of these on the Virtual Console but not even close to all of them. While i agree in part to his piracy he was filling a market that Nintendo failed to recognize. Maybe someone doesnt want to buy a Wii. maybe they just want a console with 50 - 100 NES games on them?? maybe just maybe?

but no Nintendo wants everyone araba kiralama to buy the Wii. thats their excuse but thats not what copyright is supposed to protect. i am real sure that the makers of 10 yard fight were losing sleep because they were missing out on their $0.00025 worth because they didnt get royalties from this player. *smirk*

my question is, should Super Mario Bros. be banned from public domain forever? isnt 23 years enough time for Nintendo to have made their profits?

If you have followed the Steamboat Willie case regarding Mickey Mouse you can rest in your bed well at night knowing that the MOUSE will still be under copyright law, away from public domain after your great grandchildren are in nursing homes. That is beyond ridiculous dont you think??

Gallagher can araç kiralama say all he wants, but I strongly rent a car believe it's due to his crappy leadership and E3 being a joke. ESA's Board of Directors need to find a way to get out rent a car of this horrid contract with this Bush cronie before there's no one left on the Board.

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing ttnet vitamin or little and need to start saving costs.

YES.

 oh, so people who play shooter games can be good shooters IRL? Do people who play FIFA can be a great Soccer player IRL?

 

Media.........

 

lol wut

 

when will they stop judging us for the games we play? Them old people play PONG and now send young people to wars. woooooo000o0o0

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

It makes me sad that people are dying in a stupid war based on lies, but anyone who puts himself in harm's way for what he believes is just and right deserves respect, and should they die it is a tragic loss.

I think the war is wrong, but my argument is with politicians and their corporate bedfellows, not with the honest men and women actually over there doing the hard work.

Rest in peace soldier.  You will be remembered and grieved.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

You have our sincerest respect, Tan Quoc Ngo. You died in the line of duty and we remove our hats for you. His family will be in my prayers tonight.

And now on to one of the most misguided people I've ever met. Jack, I know this will probably fall on deaf ears, but I am hoping that at least some of it gets through. Read 1 John and meditate REAL long and hard on it. Examine your faith. True faith is made evident in what you do and what you say, and the things you've done and said do NOT back up your claim to faith. Jack, don't wait until the eleventh hour to ask yourself if what you've been doing is pleasing to God. People who say they'll change at the eleventh hour usually end up dying at 10:55, and then there will be no chance for repentance. I don't want to see you suffer in Hell, Jack. It's still not too late to examine your eternal fate and change course.

Jack Thompson and his Faith

I to do not want to see a soul go to hell, but Jack Thompson is very close to sending his  soul to hell. Tell me Jack, tell me in what verse in the bible give us Chirstians the right to judge and hate?

Re: Jack Thompson and his Faith

"Judge not, lest ye be judged." I think he misinterpreted it.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

What a brave soul.He will be sorely missed by his fellow Americans.

Hey Jack,you make me feel embarrassed to be a Christian when you post on this site.I wish you would please go away.You justify Atheists beliefs that we Christians are all intolerant assholes(not all Atheists).

This is to the Atheists:do you guys and gals wish there was Hell for people like Jack?

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

JT, anyone who's so self-righteous, so sure that they just cannot go to hell, is probably going there.

Secondly, you have no basis on which to claim Cho was a "gamer". First off, it's been proven that he was a very anti-social person and had little to no "friends". Secondly, his hard drive being gone does not automatically equal "he's a gamer". Thirdly, only one newspaper even reported that he played Counter Strike, and they quickly pulled the story after reportedly realizing it was false. And I'd believe them over a proven lier such as yourself any day of the week.

Also, I can tell you're one of those "Christians" who believe they can automatically get into Heaven on a technicality, even if in every other aspect of their life they act like an asshole. That technicality being, that they go to church every sunday and claim to worship Jesus. "Oh, it's okay that I'm a completely disdainful person and have no actual respect for human  life. It's okay that I use the deaths of others as stepping stones in my quest to make everyone believe an perversion of the truth. BECAUSE I GO TO CHURCH AND STUFF."

Being a real Christian (protip: not you) involves being a decent person.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

i wish his famly well and im glad to know we have honorable men and women gamers in the millatare tho i dont agree why they are there i am glad they chose to go there even tho it may not be there chose to go for a war with not clear sight

i have a oblagtion of my honor to stop you ranting from getting the main stream and the best way to do that is to disprove you at each turn.

Thanks very much

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

My gut feeling is telling me that somebody is posing as Jack Thompson just to make drama.  Either way, attacking and moacking the death of a solider who've served his nation so that others back at home can be free is sick and low. 

 

Jack Thompson or not, you are sick.  It's people like you who mock a solider and his or her family should be force into joing the armed forces and see what horrible and tramatic events they go through each day  they're on the battlefield.

 

Jack, what have you done to serve your country?  Have you ever been on the armed forces or the battlefield? 

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

No, this guy has the same habits as someone who was confirmed to be Thompson a few days ago. It's him. He's been attacking threads like this for years with the same rhetoric.

Jack Thompson I.P. Banned.

If GP have comfrimed this is Jack Thompson, why they haven't I.P. banned him yet?  Man I hope somebody show Jack's attack the the Florida Bar.

Re: Jack Thompson I.P. Banned.

He has been IP banned for his horrific behavior - roughly 60 times. He's hiding behind some sort of proxy to get around all those and continue the same gross professional misconduct that's getting him permanently disbarred in a week.

 

JT has never really been in any good position to be calling anyone here a coward. Or a moron. Or a troll. Or an ambulance chaser. Or a necrophile. Or a thug. Or a child abuser. Or a fascist. Or a terrorist. Or an amoeba. Or a disease.

What the Bible says about people like Jack Thompson

Finally, as to the directive that I "go to hell."  First off, Hell is capitalized, as it's a real place.  Secondly, I'm not going there.  I am redeemed and saved in Christ.  How about you?

 I am.  Jesus is my sensei.  Since I formed an allegiance with him, he's been taking me on an endless journey, teaching me the ancient art of love-fu.  I feel kinda like Ryu when I follow him.

You, however, are more like Akuma, or Dan Hibiki.

I know the reference is lost on you, so this is what I mean: no, you are not redeemed and saved in Christ.  The evidence of this is in your actions.  You refuse to treat anyone with love like He commands us to.  That just goes to show that when you first accepted Christ, you didn't really mean it.

Here's what the Bible says about that:


James 1:19-27

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.  Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does.

If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight reign on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distressand to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.


Matthew (that's even my real name!) 7:15-23

Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.  By their fruit you will recognize them.  Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?  Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

Not everyone who says to me "Lord, Lord" will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven.  Many will say to me on that day, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?"  Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you.  Away from me, you evildoers!"


Your grace period has long expired.  It is time for you to be judged like you have judged so many others.

Excellent point, Matt. LEGENDARY Win!

Here's somebody that is actually a Chirstian and don't use our Faith in Jesus to belittle and hurt others!

 

Jack, I think you might learn a thing or two fron this Chirstian, you know, the kind who don't judge.  If you really are a Chirstian Jacl, you wouldn't judge people just because of their lifestyle.

 

Jack, it's people like you that give us Chirstians and Jesus a bad name.

Finally, as to the directive that I "go to hell."  First off, Hell is capitalized, as it's a real place.  Secondly, I'm not going there.  I am redeemed and saved in Christ.  How about you?

Jeez, i thought JT was bad enough for one memorial blog. And Im only a Catholic, but doesn't speaking ill of the dead as well as cursing count as sins punishable by eternal damnation in the fires of Hell? And please, do us all a favor, dont, and i mean DONT, disgrace this article about the loss of a human life in the line of duty with your self-gratifying, mis-placed righteousness. I have to stop now because im just gonna start with the immature insults if i continue.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

"Secondly, Cho of V-Tech obsessively played CounterStrike, and his high school classmates say so."

This early and erroneous point was retracted by the Post.  They, much like you, jumped at the bit to start pulling out this over used scapegoat out of the box.  But unlike you they had the integrity to renege on that point when it proved to be false.  If you weren't so busy trying to protect child molesters you may have had time to read the official VTech report which shows that he had a passing interest in games a long time ago.  And the only game mentioned was the rather benign Sonic the Hedgehog.

 

"His computer hard drive at college was missing."

So what?  What does this prove?  Since the hard drive is missing saying that there are games on it is as much hearsay as saying that his hard drive also shows the location of big foot.

"Finally, as to the directive that I "go to hell."  First off, Hell is capitalized, as it's a real place.  Secondly, I'm not going there.  I am redeemed and saved in Christ.  How about you?"

Being redeemed is not enough fool.  You are also expected to live in a fashion befitting of The Savior.  Protecting child molesters is not befitting.  Damning other troubled minds to commiting these horrific acts(not to mention their victims) by preventing them from getting the help they need for the MYRIAD OF CAUSES THAT CAUSE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, and instead focus on an innane scapegoat that you HAVE NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT.  That also is a ticket to your damnation.

 

"Thirdly, video games are used by the military to convince new soldiers that they can go into combat and pull the trigger."

 

And they also watch training movies.  Well guess we better ban all cinema then?  Military simulators and home consoles have a vast difference between them.  Well that and generally a gulf of millions of dollars as well.  Also, if you don't have any evidence to this numbing effect via commercially avaliable games, then your point is moot.

"You don't "get it" because you're a zombie on this and other issues, as you've played so many violent games that your brain is fried.  Gee, what a surprise. "

Provide evidence that games have this effect or fuck off.

 

Just about a week left in your sad little career Jack.  But chin up.  The legal beating the Florida Bar is going to give you is going to be nothing compared to when you are roasting in Hell along with those troubled people you helped put there.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Anonymous Internet trolls?  That would be you, coward.  I sign my name.

Really? Your legal name is "ooooooooo"?

Hell is ... a real place.

Then why is there no mention of it in the Old Testament?

I am redeemed and saved in Christ.  How about you?

Because you believe in christ? So did Dylan Klebold and Seung-Hui Cho. Just because you believe in christ doesn't mean he will forgive you right off the bat.

video games are used by the military to convince new soldiers that they can go into combat and pull the trigger.  The same works in the civilian population.

the military doesn't use home consoles and home consoles don't use guns in which you can assemble, reload, or repair. You don't "get it" because you're a idiot, whose brain is fried by Abrahamic religions.

The more you boast your Christianity, the more you really aren't.

Thirdly, video games are used by the military to convince new soldiers that they can go into combat and pull the trigger.....

Hey, wait, if our brains our fried from all the violent gaming, why don't we have the mindset of going into real combat to non-chalantly pull the trigger? You said it yourself, it works for civilians as well.

I guess that you picture a thousands of people camping by their video game TVs, unbeknownst to them, training to cause anarchy. We have yet to see sizeable real-life results of the damage caused by the civilian "training". Please don't back up your future statements with scientific experiments.

You're paranoid, Jack. You keep clinging on to Murphy's Law for dear life, but real-life results trump all the scientific ones.

I sign my name too. Do i win?

Nobody even knew who the hell the shooter was before you ASSUMED it was Counter-Strike. You can't PROVE that he ever even owned it. When there is no evidence, you can't say you have fullproof smoking guns.

And finally, no. Video games are NOT used for that purpose. They don't have PS3 and 360 units hooked up in boot camps, or whatever. The military uses technology that is several times more advanced than anything that commercial video game systems have ever produced. THE MILITARY uses virtual reality simulators where YOU, not just an onscreen model, actually mimic movements that you need to do in combat situations. THAT is virtual reality. VIDEO GAMES have you pressing little buttons on 5-inch pieces of plastic. THAT is not virtual reality.

We know this because we actually know what makes the systems. YOU DO NOT. Why? Because you DON'T do research. You DON'T care about children. You DON'T care about anyone but your precious little attorney's lisence. And THAT will be gone in a week because of your incessant, infantile lies. Nothing that gamers have ever done.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

1.  Yes, I believe we've already been over this bit about your desire to place others, including children (even your own) in harm's way by publicizing, and demanding others do the same, personal information over the internet.  Prior news stories show the harm in doing so.  So it is not a speculation or theory that harm can come from making personal information freely available over the internet.

2.  Actually, proper research shows a far more complex issue regarding Cho.  From social difficulties during his earliest ages, to failures by the state to ensure he sought help, to other difficulties in college, including what apparently were differences in cultural (including literary) preceptions.  I'd also like to remind others, since you, John Bruce, are having memory failures, that it was in fact YOU, John Bruce, who sought to be paid for making appearances such as the offer to NIU after that shooting as well as the suggestion that you be paid for a proposed debate with Jason Della Rocca.  Indeed, you have made numerous PAID appearances spreading your misinformation, lies, and deceit regarding the issue of video games and your Anti-First Amendment beliefs.

Your listed 3.  And religious organizations train and brainwash kids to go out and verbally, mentally, physically, and/or sexually assault other children that don't succumb to the beliefs of those religious organizations.  I believe YOU, yourself, have expressed violent religious statements which could very well have been linked to various criminal acts by others who may have heard or read your mentally molesting violent religious comments. 

Your listed "Finally", 4. Not everyone believes the same religious dogma that you do.  Even those who are Christian do not believe exactly the same things as you do.  Whether Hell/hell exists or not is irrelevant, John Bruce.  The garbage you spew, the bigotry, the hate, the ignorance, the lies (and they have been enumerated many times), the deceit you commit, all this and more, are clear signs that you, in fact, do NOT worship a true, honorable, ethical, intelligent God and that what you really worship is a Demon-Pretender-To-The-Throne-Of-Heaven.  And whether you deny it or not is also irrelevant.  Your own statements and actions prove that what I've said is true.  "Saved in Christ"?  More like the subjegated minion of every demon of Hell/hell.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Don't forget, Thompson has turned down every appearance where he wouldn't have been paid.

Thompson prevaricating about the US military...again

The USCG, one of the 5 armed services, does not "use video games to convince new soldiers that they can go into combat and pull the trigger", as you so fictionalize, like everything else you do.  I work for them.  You don't.  However, you are entitled to your fantasies...but reality is far different.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

First of all, Mr. Thompson, I sincerely apologize for my spelling.

Secondly, you are going to Hell (satisfied?) for your unbound narcissism and crimes against free tought, public decency and America.

Obviously, I need not go further, the kind ladies and gentlemen here will be more than happy to destroy your argument.

Thank you kindly for your time;

If you were to look up Internet Troll in the dictionary, it has a picture of you next to it, Jack.

Secondly, Cho did not play counterstrike.  It was a rumor that you made up.

Finally, you will go to Hell, Jack.  No matter how much you convince yourself otherwise.

Thirdly, this should go before finally.  Another grammatical error by ole' JT.  Why don't you blame Dennis for this one.

 

Sortableturnip's Law: As an online discussion of video game violence grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Jack Thompson approaches 1

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Point of interest, Jack, the "Anonymous Internet trolls" comment wasn't even directed at you.  It was directed at the anonymous poster who was arguing that dying in the line of duty isn't heroic.  If you had taken half a second, you would have realized that, but you're far too narcisistic to think any of our insults aren't aimed at you, aren't you?

Beacon80 (who's not dumb enough to post his real name on a public forum)

P.S. You're still a troll, just not an anonymous one.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Where to start, where to start. How bout from the beginning:

Anonymous Internet trolls?  That would be you, coward.  I sign my name.

Anonymous or not, you are still a troll. Also, you do not have the guts to respond like that to those of us who use our real name. You also don't have the guts to answer a simple serious question about why you feel parents are so powerless to control the media that enters their home. Also, I sign my name and a myriad of ways to contact me. So who is the bigger coward.

Secondly, Cho of V-Tech obsessively played CounterStrike, and his high school classmates say so.  His computer hard drive at college was missing.  Nice try.  I'm out here trying to prevent similar massacres, and Dennis McCauley is sitting at his ECA-paid for desk trying to make money from the massacres.

According to one retracted paragraph from the Washington Post and your incoherant ramblings. The official report performed by the authorities found no such connection. The absense of the hard drive is not proof that you are right. It just means that there are questions without answers.

Next, you are the one trying to sue the game industry into oblivion. Don't tell me that you would not be requiring the lawyer's cut from the winning.

For all the work you do to prevent masacres, you sure have narrowed your efforts to almost meaningless. According to the secret service, violent media falls far down to the bottom of the list of factors in violent crime. Why do you put it at the top?

Finally, as to the directive that I "go to hell."  First off, Hell is capitalized, as it's a real place.  Secondly, I'm not going there.  I am redeemed and saved in Christ.  How about you?

Finally comes at the end of a sequence, not second to last. Also, being redeemed of Christ is not a free ticket to being a jackass.

Thirdly, video games are used by the military to convince new soldiers that they can go into combat and pull the trigger.  The same works in the civilian population.  So the military that trained this hero is also training you to disdain human life and pull the trigger.  You don't "get it" because you're a zombie on this and other issues, as you've played so many violent games that your brain is fried.  Gee, what a surprise. 

Video games are used by the military to build an interest in young men and women in military service. Once they are in service, video games are not a part of the training program. Fire real firearms is a part. Taking part in simulated battles with near perfect replica weapons is a part of the traing. But video games are far from it.

There are no scientific studies that show that video games train people to act violently. Believe what you want about your mythical Harvard Brain Scan Study. The data does not support you.

2. I seem to remember his classmates saying that he didn't play videogames - unlike most students. Also, can you prove that his harddrive was missing? If you can, and you may be able to - i'm not aware of whether it is or isn't accounted for, can you prove specifically what was on it.

3. Proof that Hell (as described in Biblical Texts) is real, please? And you've just admitted to what is considered Heresy. To claim to be in God's favour is considered Blasphemy.

4. I fired a Rifle before I picked up a Dualshock. Although it may be the other way around for many current soldiers, any single one you ask will tell you that videogames are not used. Furthermore, you have time and again failed to produce any evidence to back up your claims. You are (for the time being) a lawyer. Surely they taught you in Law School that you need evidence? Consider a new career reporting for FOX News. They like you well enough.

And out of interest, didn't you buy GTA IV? The sum of all evil? What a joke.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Once again, you using a thread like this to troll and further your own agenda is sick and twisted beyond even what I thought you were capable of.  Until now, you at least showed some respect for the US military, where did that go?

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

That went right out the window with his Career.

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Along with his integrity, his sense of decency, his morality, his common sense, everything he learned in law school, his honesty.....

Re: Soldier, GTA Player Makes Ultimate Sacrifice in Afghanistan

Jack,

Once again, I say you are nothing but a blight on mankind.  Please die in a fire.

To your points:

1) Cho played Sonic the Hedgehog.  All reports that he played Counterstrike were removed from the news source you keep citing.

2) Those who are Christian should at least make an attempt to act like it.  You do not.  The fact that you relish and chase after these massacres is only one part of the proof.  So don't give me that high and mighty bullshit.

3) Jack correcting grammar and spelling.  That is a fucking laugh.

4) The military does NOT use video games to desensitize soldiers.  They have other methods to do so, and this has been debunked numerous times.

Enjoy the unemployment line, asshole.

Sleaker@MP - Looked up hitbox, thanks.07/24/2014 - 9:40pm
Matthew WilsonI agree, but to me given other known alternatives google seems to the the best option.07/24/2014 - 6:30pm
Andrew EisenTo be clear, I have no problem with Google buying it, I'm just concerned it will make a slew of objectively, quantifiably bad changes to Twitch just as it's done with YouTube over the years.07/24/2014 - 6:28pm
Matthew WilsonI doubt yahoo has the resources to pull it off, and I not just talking about money.07/24/2014 - 6:15pm
SleakerI wouldn't have minded a Yahoo purchase, probably would have been a better deal than Tumblr seeing as they paid the same for it...07/24/2014 - 6:13pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's the golden age of Hitbox, I guess.07/24/2014 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilsonagain twitch was going to get bought. It was just who was going to buy it . Twitch was not even being able to handle the demand, so hey needed a company with allot of infrastructure to help them. I can understand why you would not want Google to buy it .07/24/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew Eisen"Google is better than MS or Amazon" Wow. Google, as I mentioned earlier, progressively makes almost everything worse and yet there are still two lesser options. Again, wow!07/24/2014 - 5:43pm
Andrew EisenI don't know. MS, in my experience, is about 50/50 on its products. It's either fine or it's unusable crap. Amazon, well... I've never had a problem buying anything from them but I don't use any of their products or services so I couldn't really say.07/24/2014 - 5:42pm
Matthew WilsonGoogle is better than MS or Amazon.07/24/2014 - 5:33pm
Sleaker@AE - I've never seen youtube as a great portal to interact with people from a comment perspective. like ever. The whole interface doesn't really promote that.07/24/2014 - 5:28pm
Andrew EisenNor I. From a content producer's perspective, almost every change Google implements makes the service more cumbersome to use. It's why I set up a Facebook fan page in the first place; it was becoming too difficult to connect with my viewers on YouTube.07/24/2014 - 4:50pm
Sleakerwonder if anyone is going to try and compete with google, I'm not a huge fan of the way they manage their video services.07/24/2014 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenIt happened. Google bought Twitch. http://venturebeat.com/2014/07/24/googles-1b-purchase-of-twitch-confirmed-joins-youtube-for-new-video-empire/07/24/2014 - 4:28pm
MaskedPixelanteI hope Nintendo actually follows through with the DS Virtual Console, that sounds like it could be cool.07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
james_fudgePeople don't deny it persay, they bristle at the idea that it's a "problem" that nneds to be "fixed."07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
Papa MidnightRacism and Misogny are heavily prevalent in the gaming and online arena. Getting people to actually admit that, however...07/24/2014 - 11:42am
Papa MidnightThat very thing is somthing that anyone who has been subjected to racial-based targeting online could actually state that they've experienced.07/24/2014 - 11:41am
Papa MidnightPerfect example: "I have yet to talk to a man who has had to call a police officer due to a stalker, only to be told nothing can be done until they are physically assaulted."07/24/2014 - 11:40am
Papa MidnightNot that said communities are mutually exclusive. Even the very first comment on that last article equates women in the gaming industry with being the n-word. Despicable, aetestable, and (sadly enough) this is not an uncommon presence in either community.07/24/2014 - 11:35am
