Violence: Nintendo has made me a cold, unfeeling, violent sociopath

   0

Clearly the face of a man with a lot of blood on his hands


Let my story be a warning to all those who think videogames are just harmless forms of entertainment: they are nothing more than violent bloodbaths of carnage and gore. They can never touch on important themes like love and loss, where a girl and her friends can rescue someone she truly cares for from certain doom by swapping in a clone of said someone at a certain point in the past and she can express such a deep caring and love for this person when he is saved from the brink of death in a 16-bit game with no voice acting that will certainly NOT bring a tear to your eye. They can never be heart-wrenching and tell a story about a woman who saves a baby whose species she hunted relentlessly, who views her as its own mother, who sacrifices itself to save her life in an ending so touching that it stays with you forever. No, games are just gruesome, and can make you feel no emotions whatsoever. It is too late for me; if only Nintendo had made emotionally-charged games that elevated the medium as a whole, had made games that got us to think, to laugh, and to cry.

If only.

About NakedBigBossone of us since 1:58 PM on 06.09.2012

My name is Arthur Damian. I am 34 years old, and I have been gaming since the NES era. I like the new school AND the old school. Chrono Trigger is the bestest game ever, and Junction is the worstest. I love to write, and I am currently working at Baruch College, helping students transfer in their credits from other universities. I also love vidja gamez, and right now I'm playing games on the PS4 and Switch, even though I have a huge backlog of games on the Wii, Wii U, and 360 to go through. BLURG. I also work for That VideoGame Blog as editor-in-chief, writing and editing daily news posts, AND I am an author at Destructoid's sister site, Nintendo Enthusiast.
