Venezuela is trying to ban violent videogames


It is hard to explain the Venezuelan government and their brainwashed voters (most of them), if you look at the history of President Chavez you won�t see anything you like (that is if you like democracy), but he become President just years after a failed military coup. Still years later they voted for him and now he remains in power; that�s democracy in Latin America at its best.

I�m from a small country named Uruguay, is small, only three million people or something. And most of the people around here think good things about a gorilla that likes to beat his wife from time to time. We can spend a lot of time talking shit about President Chavez, quite a hypocrite a guy that spends thousands of dollars in the best suits and shoes and is a communist at the same time; I can only imagine then that being a communist nowadays is to go with the fashion. But you can tell the level of ignorance/desperation of the people in Latin America to follow a dictator like the god of oil he is, then you can imagine that a move to ban videogames is nothing worth a headline. Just another act against freedom and what is an act against freedom if it is for the common good?

In 2007 I wrote at radiolevelup.com that President Chavez was very angry because a videogame called Mercenaries was taking place in Venezuela. Some other member of the blog was very offended by my calling Chavez an �idiot�, I left the blog because I would not compromise my view of things just because someone else thought different.

So right now the idea of the law is to ban the sale of violent videogames. I will tell you what will happen, he is going to sign the law and then he is going to have an orgasm on his TV show explaining how evil and capitalist (and therefore if something is capitalist is evil), videogames are. If you watch his TV program you will see a lot of people wearing red that will applaud him, but that�s no surprise since they always applaud everything he says.

What a brave new world: a Dictator that has his own TV show; he bans everything that he dislikes such as violent videogames (Imperialist videogames!!), a lot of red shirted idiots applaud him... he is so charismatic when he waves the ban-hammer! Almost as charismatic as when he is verbally attacking other countries. On the other side no one dares to move because this is just another item in a long list of things you have to tolerate from a guy that is sitting over oil.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
