Acouple of days ago, one of Norway's most read newspapers named "Aftenposten" release a series of articles related to gaming and the addiction.
The treatment of how gaming is seen in the country is compared to shit like alcohol and drugs, Main problems are that the local media here tend to be onesided with technophobic/neophobic press tactics to scare grown ups to believe you'll be raising addicts and by using one professor as a source is enough to cover this problem and twist his words in favor for clickbating.

How is gaming being shamed in your contry?
>>
>>260690393
Well, because of GamerGate it's being shunned everywhere.

Fucking suspicious they all released anti-gamer articles at the same time.
>>
Considering there's a direct link between gaming and misogyny I think it's reasonable that, until we know what causes it, we treat it like an addictive drug or problem.

Ultimately, gaming is harmful to oneself and others, whereas movies, tv and books are not.

When we better understand WHY games make people act so radically, then we can attempt cure it, and then it won't be an issue.

>>
>>260690393
Gaming is mostly shamed because it's a new media format that takes readership/viewers away from more traditional media. It happened with movies and with comics. Comics were the devil and encouraged evil thoughts and violence in youth - who are already demonised because they're young and scary and shake their hips to to the scary rock music.

It almost shifted to the internet a while ago, but because too many people use it and it's useful, they couldn't scrutinise it too harshly. So it went back to video games because they're an easy target.
>>
>>260691494

It's cause up until Video Games, hobbies that were equally as engaging and potentially competitive required intense physical activity.
Adults were too old and fragile to do them, so adults are "supposed" to have boring, depressing hobbies.
If it takes all your attention and is engaging it's for "kids."
If an adult does something "for kids" there's something wrong with them.
That's basically it. Old people projecting, wishing everyone was as miserable as them.

The amount of click bait articles in serious newspapers are getting to American-like breaking points for me now.
Every day there's a feminist article shitting on Radioresepsjonen and quoting statistics about '1 in 10 women are raped in Norway'(which is wrong if you read the actual statistics)
It's just clickbait anon.
My old teacher used to say; "Read VG and I'll give you a 3, read DB and I'll give you a 4, read AP and I'll give you a 5, but if you real National Geographic I'll give you a 6" Now he would have given everyone who read those papers(save for NG) a 2.

I see what went wrong here. Norway is probably one of the worst countries when it comes to journalism. None of the newspapers here can write about stuff in a manner people need to read, but how people want to read it.

Norway's biggest newspaper VG, is a fucking joke. A gossip magazine at it's best. Real news are just too terrible for us to read, we are fucking spoiled, and naive. To the point that it's actually depressing to live in this country.

I think it would be equally reasonable to validate the connection between studies of video game-violence links and the financial needs of the scientists who orchestrate the studies which claim to prove said links.

All the gaming going on around here are people playing CoD, FIFA and GTA, the "mainsteram media" never cared about gaming and only once in a while, some company markets hard enough to get a game ad on TV, Halo 4 being the last one I can remember.

Gaming is largely ignored around these parts and accepted as "something kids do to waste time", which might be the ony thing going fairly well in this shithole of a country.

I saw a news report here in sweden that basically said "being addicted to gambling or games is pretty much the same thing."

Game devs/publishers need to work harder to earn a buck, there's less pre/teenagers in multiplayer games because of overprotective parents, and the whole US GAMERS HUH fad would be a lot worse if this stigma didn't exist.

And how the fuck did I imply you couldn't fin good foreign media sources? I specifically said that NRK is a good option, if you can't read English.
NRK is a good option, if Norwegian is the only language you know.

And I implied that the dog thing got more coverage than actual important things, which I think is right to imply.

No, see I'm not saying you aren't allowed to have an opinion. I'm saying that all you're doing is whining over shit that doesn't matter at all or effect you in any way.

If that's what you want to do with your life, bitch and moan away. I just think you should shut the fuck up and go play videogames instead of bitching about things that, again, do not effect you in any way.

No, self-censorship does not count, dickcheese. There's a massive fucking difference between self-censorship and mandated censorship. Further, the idea that gaming companies are self-censoring at this point is asinine.

Considering there's a direct link between being feminist and unemployed I think it's reasonable that, until we know what causes it, we treat women studies like an illness or problem.

Ultimately, women studies are harmful to oneself and others whereas STEM, literature or trade schools are not.

When we better understand WHY feminism make people act so radically, then we can attempt to cure it, and then it won't be an issue.

Raiding was greatly exaggerated by historians. Most plundering was done by desperation and exploring. The show VikingsNot really filmed in Norway unfortunately does a good job portraying this.

just like people are whining about how bad video games are are harmless, the people on this board are just as harmless about their complaints.

Except that they shit up this board with their paranoid delusions and make it impossible to talk about video games.

Which is sad because this site, as shitty as it is, is the best place to hear actual unbias opinions on games, even though you have to sift through a lot of shit and fanboyism. Every other site is completely saturated with fanboyism and agendas that rival politicians.

So just call these people babies. insult them. point out how stupid and useless they are to whatever dumb cause they are fighting for. or ignore them.

Here in Finland every time if some criminal has every played a vidya in his life, they'll underline that fact massively.

Basically if you go shoot someone and you played super mario as a kid 20y ago, they'll go: "The perpetrator was known to play video games a lot. This makes one wonder if he was still in touch with reality and how did they video games affect his decision making."

Then you get all the soccer moms and shitty politicians fishing for extra votes for weeks. "We condemn this kind of action and we will gather a group of experts to study the risks of playing video games and how they affect our youth."

So yeah, Finland is gone already.

They made a shitty parody show about how this kid is an MMO addict who get bad grades then he got invited to offline meeting where everyone is a neckbeard/old farts with funny names and then his mom caught him redhanded.

That's literally the entire joke, the rest is just people shouting buzzwords and pretending to play video game. There was a point where his character died and he proceeded to yell "I WON THE FINAL BOSS" in a fucking MMO and the cam repeats 3 times with different angle every time they make a joke.

altough press here is a piece of shit, it hasn't fallen to SJW and stuff like that. it's below even them.

but a while ago, there was this crime where an entire family was found dead. The mother and father were special ops police officers. both were executed along with the grandmother and an aunt. their 7-yo son was pointed as the culprit. because he played Assassin's Creed 3.

i mean, it was a shitty game, but no excuse to kill your parents for it.

Atheism+ was created because American 4th wave feminists associated the puritan faiths with the conservative elements that reinforced their mythical "patriarchy".

It's essentially just your typical neckbearded SJW shit but under the guise as an organized atheism group.

No, see, you can't just use a pronoun out of nowhere, you have to establish the noun first.

If I were to respond by saying just "His protest was justified" you'd have no idea who the fuck I was talking about, eh?

Anyway, let's take a step back because you seem too retarded to understand me:

- Protesting is a means to achieve a goal, usually the creation and passing or the removal of a bill.
- Protesting fat women whining on tumblr is about as retarded as you can get
- You have asserted that feminists have (successfully) protested against...video games? It's unclear...yet can't come up with any examples

It only became a "Thing" here because once and awhile a state law is passed for religious reasons. There are religious based lobbying and such that goes on in the US.

A good example is that in Virginian(and possibly other states) have a moment of silence period in all public schools.

While the reason is never stated it anywhere the purpose for it is for prayer.

So some atheists essentially feel the need to organize and become an entity that could lobby against certain things religious backed laws.

But then feminists infiltrated it.

Here in Spain things seem pretty neutral. I remember some guy trying to set a bomb in an UNI and they only mentioned videogames when they interviewed her mother, saying he liked the escapism videogames provide.

Granted, I don't give a shit about my country and barely follow any of our media, but I haven't noticed anything too grave yet.

Have to say though, Spaniards are one of the most cancerogenous gaymurs out there, it's crazy. You haven't seen dudebros until you've taken a walk in one of our GAMEs or see our most famous Youtube personalities, fuck they even got interviewed on TV not too long ago, I wanted to rip my fucking head from embarrasment.
