  • In the wake of mass shootings, videos games often get the blame. My thoughts...

    • Stupid old people need to go back to their nursing home

    • This video is exactly what I told my fiancée the other day.

    • I have been watching your videos for just over a year now. I wish I found your channel sooner. I live in South Africa and I like to be informed of the world around me. Your channel helps out a lot. I share a lot of your opinions and views. I hope to one day be able to sit down with you and your team and just have a solid discussion. I just admire and learn a lot from you. Just thought I’d let you know and thank you for what you do. God bless bru

    • If we're going to turn into a faget pussy to Nation, I will respectfully leave the States but maintain and keep my citizenship because I love America, but hate the bullshit that's destroying it. And everybody watching this video needs to contact Donald Trump, and tell him to apologize because what he said cross the line.

    • StevenCrowder I had a some really horrific moments when I heard about the shooting in Dayton. My son and his family live in Dayton, and they’ve gone to the Oregon District many, many times. As soon as I heard about it , I called my son and texted him, but I got no answer. I tried not to panic. You know, you always think these mass shootings happen _other_ places. They’re not supposed to happen so close to home. It was almost surreal. I was beyond relieved when my son _finally_ got a hold of me. He had been in his garage, and didn’t have his phone on him. And, you were exactly right Steven. We have no control over these mass shootings, so the best thing we can do is pray, and hand it all over to God.

  • There is like a billion gamer out there, and people with a "video game background" that do mass shootings is super rare compared to people with a religious background, mental health issue background and so on. If video games really had a strong negative correlation there would be a shit ton more mass shootings and similar rampages. Just logic. In the western world where most play video games the is actually less violence then anywhere else in the world now and or at any point in history.

  • none of those things are the problem. the problem is bad parenting. if the government had programs like giving parents extra tax breaks for raising A students, then parents would give a shit and put effort into their kids. I also believe there needs to be more of a closer eye on families with kids to make sure all is well in the home. there is way too much of parents just having kids to get a paycheque, with no intention of raising a decent living person from child to adult. thats why if theres extra tax breaks for good grades then the parents are like duh more money (shame on them for just doing it for money) but hey atleast they are doing well by the kid. its scary being brought up in a home where your family doesnt give a shit about you, your view on the world and your view on family and love and caring are shattered and i believe it leads to crazy people like mass shooters. just a thought. side note i believe the world would benefit from having cameras everywhere to protect people from scary situations. might be a bit creepy to put them in bathrooms too but techniquely it can be done even in stalls, you just pull up a curtain that guards your downstairs but the camera can still see your face. i just imagine that if cameras start popping up everywhere, then crimes in bathrooms would spike. if creepy crimes keep happening then its inevitble the whole world will have things like fingers scanners to get into bathrooms and it wont open until it reads dna, and other creepy things. my slow problem fix with the parenting is a whole generation away so chances are the creepy dna shit will come first. and im fine with it, im tired of creepy people like liars and frauds and fake people being shitty but being respectful when certain eyes are watching.

  • I dont wanna accept that i didnt raise my kids right or that there is something severely wrong with their mind.... so im going to blame the video games that i bought for them and allowed them to play... 🤔🤔🤔

  • I had a friend whose parents didn’t let him play M rated games he always looked so intensely immersed in the conversations that me and my other friends would have about shooting demons with shotguns and ripping their spinal cords out

  • "You cant fix evil" - I really liked that statement. Absolutely correct

  • I firmly believe Marble Madness was created to cause violence.

  • Games dont cause violence, change my mind

  • Video Games Causes Violence!!! Me:The Most Violent Thing I Have Done PUNCH PUNCH PUNCH GRAB

  • The first guy to lose a game musta been like 😁🔫😡 And that's how war started

  • Games cause violence....... Hahahaha Dang if that was true I would be a mass murder because I'm working on my minecraft farm and home

  • What about 8chan?

  • Thoughts and prayers for your nose....😂

  • So when do we get to see some Crowder-style live streams (or old-school Let's Plays) of Undertale, Deltarune, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and/or the entire Borderlands series? Or retro games if you prefer.

  • Blame the pharmaceutical industry - every single one of these shooters is on them.

  • After playing Clash of Clans, I’m going to get my barbarians and invade the White House

  • I'm glad that there are things the left and the right can agree on when it comes to guns.

  • I have nothing but respect for you, i may not have the same ideology as you. However, i think you know your shit, and that is respectful!

  • Evil is the absence of good

  • man ive been playing M rated games with friends since 14 hell no im not desensitized to violence its completely different from real life its a screen with fake characters with fake scenarios fake everything its a GAME ive seen people get more mad playing a board game than video games lol

  • Steven you're the man!!

  • AMEN ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ amazing video😊

  • video games are just the easy thing to blame the media has done it for years and now it is rubbing off into modern day.

  • I like super niche metal. We're talking lyrics so vulgar, violent, disgusting, and spiritually black that a lot of people would probably think anyone to listen to said types of metal should be institutionalized. Murder, cannibalism, rape, and world destruction are all common lyrical themes in bands I enjoy listening to. I don't really understand it, but the incredulous lyrics in their basically infinite audacity are a key part sometimes for me. To even try to explain would consume too much time and probably bear no fruit. Though a study or 2 on death metal and its(positive effect) on listeners were recently published if anyone was curious. Just Google it. The point being, even though I'm inundated with such "negativity" in music, there is literally no part of me that wants to see, or be apart of anything like that real life. Straw Dogs had a rape scene that made me so angry (not at the movie but the act itself and those that would do such a fucked thing), both me and my best bro had to walk out of the theater for a bit. It wasn't until later I realized parts of my hands were bruised from clenching my fists. Furthermore, I also enjoy playing video games as a hobby. And most of them are rather violent. Not even when I'm angry, nay enraged, does grabbing a firearm ever even cross my mind.. The whole argument is baseless. and while I'm not exactly sure what may or may not influence somebody to do something terrible, I do I have a feeling that the hate and misanthropic rage is with you from a young age. But just as most kids that torture animals don't grow up to be serial murderers, most of these tortured(def not sympathizing) souls don't either. What the fuck happened to us as a species??

  • Bro fist for my man stephen 👊😔

  • “Video games cause violence” Me: (looks at the blood shedding, Limb severing, Horrifying history of the human race before video games were invented) If anything, violent video games allow people to vent some of that aggression (Sounds like the purge XD)

    • (Sounds like the purge XD) (immediately blames movies)

  • Develop bullet proof technology...

  • I've been playing video games all my life and it didn't make me a violent person. Parents and guardians wanna blame everyone and everything instead of taking accountability for their poor role-modeling and parenting >:0

  • Sounds like you need a NINTENDO SWITCH BRO

  • Pretty sure... if you break your nose... you end up with double black eyes... been there. It sucks. Thought that's the way it always goes. Could be wrong though.

  • I grew up on video games. I still play some pretty violent ones. I also was watching Jason, Michael Myers, and Freddy when I was 7-10 years old. I have yet to murder anyone. Gonna launch a Hail Mary here and just guess I am not alone on that.

  • I’m glad you’re on this earth Steven

  • You should do a change my mind “videogames don’t cause violence”

  • Your prayers are signals for the angels, guiding them to where they need to be most. Also, I think you'll make a great President one day Steven. Thank you for being genuine!

  • Are they the fact that it's so hard to get good statistics on anyting it's partial to blame. I think they're blaming violent video games for violent crimes is idiotic. And I consider myself a right-leaning Centrist and I really don't care what people think about that.

  • I used top play all the street fighters on Sega back in the day . Im not trying to fight everyone in the street and throw hadukons at them (if i spelled that right)

  • I agree with you . I am sick of everyone blaming school shootings on video games. I played all those games and many of all of you out there have . Ive never seen people who are playing example call of duty go out and shoot anyone up. People who kill someone usually are not right im the head to begin with . Or emotionally disturbed

  • i agree, Trump is a fucking IDIOT for blaming video games. hopefully all the incel right wingers realize this now that he touched their safe space

  • If you played video games on camera and uploaded it, I would definitely watch. I feel like that would be hilarious.

  • I've been playing video games since i was 2 years old. I'm almost 26 now and I've played a lot of violent video games. That's just it though. They're just games. They are not real. They do not correspond to reality. They are for entertainment purposes. I've never once thought about violently harming another human being because of the games I play. Why? Because I am a person and I am made in the image of God, just like everyone else. I would never harm someone else. In video games, the violence is usually against non-human enemies or it's for defense. Regardless, if you have a strong will and can understand the difference between reality and fiction, then you will never have a problem with playing video games at all.

  • 1st time I have felt like you are calling me an idiot. Darn.

  • What about the people who play plague inc?

  • Every time I see your face or hear your voice or even just see your videos in my suggested feed(owtfe), I'm reminded of the editor I worked for on a small magazine who expressly saved the last two page spread of every issue to go on and on and on about how the donations the zine received was all that kept it afloat, how without the help of everyone with a buck to spare our sad little rag would go extinct. You constantly beg for new mug club members. I used to be able to ignore it but it's like a high pitch whine in the background now. It makes my skin itch but even worse for you, its made me avoid your videos and cancel my membership (even though I did like your videos and agree with you on almost every issue.) Stop begging before it's too late.

  • the diffrence between a video game and conservatives is one has logic

  • Where does he get the statistic on gun crime from?

  • Video games are how most people medicate their issues, without needing to take medicine. It is harmless.

  • i used to run from cops in my car, go 160+mph but because of realistic simulators, i stopped doing that. is that ever mentioned?

  • Video-Games are a source of entertainment, although young kids shouldn't be playing M rated games, Video-Games won't cause violence because my friends (I have a lot of them) and myself play Video-Games and we haven't changed. Saying Video-Games cause violence is like saying books and movies cause violence.

  • 2.1k Boomers disliked this video

  • Your right Crowder. The Vaping & Gaming bullshit is just making me want to stay out of elections all over again. And ive 21 year old conservative who has been finding his way in politics.

  • I kinda hate how he keeps saying "Republicans", as if his indentiity / the collective Republican identity is what's at stake... We need to move past this rhetoric. This is identity politics. When he uses rhetoric like this he isn't helping the problem, he's further catalysing politics. It's about "us" sitting together and finding solutions. Not the Republican identity. Anyways, love the video Crower, keep up the good work.I just with you would focus Less on labels.

  • I blame human nature. The heart is desperately wicked who can know it, man is depraved, man loves the darkness. Cane killed Able with a rock, he never played a video game. If you're going to get back into video games I highly recommend Red Dead Redemption, 1 & 2.

  • Opinion: Mass shooting will never cease to exist as long as guns are in existence. It is simply an unfortunate part of society that we have to accept.

  • I too want to commit violent crimes after watching the peaceful sunset while feeding my dogs in minecraft

  • Crowder 100% get back into video games its a great way to relieve stress and just have some fun without having to think all that much depending on which games you play.

  • Video games doesn’t provoke violence. History provokes video games. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • One thing many of the shooters have in common is psychiatrist-prescribed antidepressants; SSRI uptake drugs that cause psychosis and suicidal thoughts. Those guys like violent video games too. So. Which caused the break from reality? Their mental health, the drugs or the games? Remember the Aurora Theatre Batman shooter? His psychiatrist worked with the C_A. He didn't remember the event at all. How many shooters had she treated? Something to look into.

  • I'm honestly done with politics at this point.

  • So if someone made a video game where you rape , beat , and butcher 6 year old children , you hang them upside down like a deer carcass and slice them open where their guts spill out ...... that would be ok ??? "just entertainment ha ha fun" ??? There is a big difference between war games and mass murder of innocent people games ..... It's not necessarily the "blood and guts" , it's the MENTALITY of the game ...... Right now I think everyone would agree , a video game raping and butchering 6 year old children "would be sick" ...... 50 years ago , mass murdering innocent adults , walking up to someone and blowing their brains out , would have been considered sick ..... Sooooooooo , guess what games will look like in 20 years ..... sick as hell , and you'll all be yappin "ah heck it's just for fun" ..... Sorry people , but you are all naive as hell ...... What we put in our brains matters , don't care if you believe me or not , I KNOW THIS IS TRUE , and I also know a video game where you mass murder innocent people "for fun" is sick shit ..... War games are "fighting an enemy" , mass murder games are "committing murder" ..... There's a difference ..... and especially if you want to yap how America is "a Christian Nation and we need God back in our schools" ..... You think God is pleased with kids playing mass murder video games and giggling with glee as they mass murder other people , blow their brains out , stab them 50 times , walk up to a stranger and just star shooting them ??? You think God approves of this sick crap ???? Please do NOT sit their and tell me "we need God" and then tell me these SICK games are ok ..... Mass murder video games are from the Devil ..... Laugh all you want , I know exactly what I'm talking about

  • just 2 things that came to mind while watching this: 1st. I don't get why people have a problem when others pray for them. I am an atheist myself, but a prayer is just the act of trying to empathize in the face of futility. It is the exact same as me saying 'I hope you will get better', and there is nothing wrong with that either. 2nd. Yes your children will watch R rater movies, and play shooter games before they are technically old enough. e.g I played Counter Strike, and Far Cry when I was in 5th grade, and watched South Park, but the fact I had to hide that from my parents still put it into context that what I see there is not the norm that should be acted out in real life.
