  • Daniel Duncan

    I am a lifelong criminal. I have the long record to prove it. I have the scars to prove it. Fighting used to be something I would engage in at the drop of a hat. Any kind of insult, no matter how slight, would send me into a blind... and drunken, drug fueled rage. I used to be the guy who you would just instinctually be afraid of. You would be in my presence and my random and unpredictable nature would have you checking your watch for the correct time to leave. I am not that guy anymore. Now I play video games. Instead of being out on the street being a natural terror, I am inside playing video games. One might even go so far as to say I have been rehabilitated. Rehabilitated by the very same video games that people are saying makes people be violent. If you ask me, I say the people who believe video games cause violence are just blatantly stupid. They are ignorant, which is a far cry from stupid, but they are willingly ignorant, ignorant in the face of all the evidence to the contrary. Which is how I would define stupid in this case. People who know the evidence exists but choose to ignore it, stupid. And if you ask me what the problem is, I will tell you it is three problems all working together with each other. Media influence, mass public ignorance and failure to provide mental healthcare to those who need it. First is the media influence. And I am talking about "news" media here. There is so much bad media coverage, that, if one has a weak mind, they can be easily manipulated into thinking the end of the world is soon to come. News media is no longer news at all. They have become ad revenue based entertainment. News is no longer a primary concern for "news" media. So people who consume news media regularly are exposed to extremely unhealthy amounts of bad news. This has got to be inflicting depression upon a lot of people. To solve this particular part of the problem, I recommend voluntary or even involuntary Internet blackouts on those who have been affected. In the case of involuntary blackouts, I would use the justification of "They are a danger to themselves and others." Which is more than enough to, at least temporarily, suspend a person's rights. And temporary is all that is necessary. I believe that a break of one or two weeks away from media and one can gain their objectivity back. You hinted at this phenomenon very briefly in your video. When you were pointing out that all violent crime is actually on the decline, despite media coverage showing the opposite. I have been saying so for years. And people, in general, have an impossible time believing it, despite me leaving links for them to the actual statistics. After a mass shooting, you tell someone that even though we have all these mass shootings, things have never been better, they just don't want to hear it. Then we have mass public ignorance. More specifically, a massive lack of education. Our public school system is not designed to make people smarter. Our public education system was originally designed to create a labor force for factories. And our public education system is largely unchanged since its creation. Fact of the matter is, if your highest level of education is public schooling and you have not taken upon yourself to voluntarily continue your education far beyond public school, even into your 40's, 50's and beyond, you are an ignorant fool. And ignorance is a huge problem, bigger than most realize. It may even be too big of a problem to solve within a democratic capitalist society. To actually fix our education system we would first have to completely throw away the one we currently have, all of it, from kindergarten all the way through graduate school, the entire thing. Then we would have to rebuild it from scratch. This is going to cost a lot of money. It will also take a lot of time. And other things, like what is included in the new curriculum would have to be decided. And everyone is going to have different things to say about all of that. Hell, I am willing to bet that there are a lot of people who, with all their great public schooling, are reading this right now thinking "This dude doesn't know what he is talking about." And to that my reply would be, "LOL". Then we have the mental health issues. Look, there is no way to get around it. People with mental health issues to be taken care of. Many of them cannot hold a job, which means they can't pay for care. We have to give it to them for free. In addition, we need to get rid of any stigma attached to mental illness. Case in point, shortly after the dual Texas and Ohio mass shootings, there was a grandmother that convinced her grandson to check into a hospital for treatment. He was quickly arrested. That was a grave mistake on our society's part. Now, if someone has a mental illness of some sort and is a danger to society, now they are less likely to seek out the help they need because they may be arrested for it. And one could argue that education is the cure for stigma, as the reason stigma exists is because people are ignorant. Now, you will notice here that nowhere in here did I mention video games or guns. This is intentional, it is because both topics, in relation to gun violence, are both irrelevant. "They all used guns though!!" Sure, but as Matt said in the video, they all wore blue jeans, they all breathed air and they all had to eat food. But I can assure you, if they all had the mental healthcare they needed, the education they needed and were not exposed to "news" media that way it presents itself today, none of them would have done what they did. Even if they all owned the guns they used. There are more people with guns that don't commit crimes than there are people with guns that do commit crimes, that is just a fact. And keep in mind too, that while mass shootings are "shocking", gun violence is still trending down, regardless of your perception of events. Facts and actual statistics show that gun violence, actually, ALL crime is trending down.

    Hey Matpat, fellow Neuroscience major here. In most psychological studies, a .3 correlation is usually considered a "strong" one, mainly because one will almost never get a 1 correlation as they are working with human subjects. Having human data create any sort of "line" ( a 1 positive correlation will show up as a straight line when the the two variables are graphed) is usually nearly impossible, so when it shows any sort of line-like shape, it is considered a higher significance then that same data would show in a biological or chemical study. Besides that, great video!

    Well of course we have more gun violence we’re the only country that has armed citizens. How about instead of looking at gun violence, look at overall violent crime and adjust for population size. In the UK are actually more likely to get robbed than in the US. Many people, including myself, believe it’s because the criminals don’t have to fear of their victims defending themselves.

    I dont know how many people will see this here. But I found a drawing by a artist for Doki doki that ... raises flags. The artist posted it on twitter. Name is @VelinquenT (She is followed by the real monika account named @lilmonix3 ) You can see a 3 eyed thing ? That only looks at you with one eye. A rope hanging out of a window ? maybe a vent. And there are metal bars infront of the windows and they have eye shaped "decoration" in it. Might be worth checking out.

    So my theory is that Sans and Papyrus are not real brothers, so Ness gets old and lose his flesh, then when he gets to the underground he hids his time machine in Gaster's lab, and also put the picture with him and his own friends, and tried to mix the letters of his name and replace the E with a A, and tried be Papyrus's Partner, and Starman became Ness's brother then he becomes a skeleton.

    Wow, this video feels like game theory from some time ago, great job! Sometimes having good material to write of is key, after all the videos you made finding intresting topics must be really hard. Anyway, i don't know if sakurai truly feels so strongly about his work situation, but i think he is a really lucky person. He does a job he clearly loves, he has accomplished a lot in his career and he is respected and recognized as one of the best game directors of the last 2 decades. On top of that i think he has a very good paycheck at the end of the month and he is relatively famous too. In the end he could abandon the series at any point, but he choose not to. Obviously nintendo would have made more smash bros games without him, but this is only a natural thing in the industry, not a blackmail or something like that. If this will really be sakurai's last smash, i hope he keeps developing games. I'm very curious of what type of game he would do next. If he put all the symbolism in smash bros purposely and it's not only in matpat's mind he must have a lot of potential for narrative driven games. Couple that with the high skill level in gameplay development we know he has and it's a very intresting prospective...

    Hey Matpat, I love your theories so much, but sometimes I have the feeling you overlook some elements. Like in this case when you talk about the statistics. By comparing the statistics of crime over the years vs the popularity of violent games, one could see that the amount of crime is reduced by 80% when gaming became popular than before. However this does not prove that violent games cause no increase in crime. This because a lot of other factors like adaptions in gun-laws, more police interference, a higher living standard reduces this total crime over the years. It can however be that in a world without videogames, the amount of crimes would be signficant lower than with them. Nevertheless proving this by data is very hard due to all third effects. Furthermore a second point, where I have the feeling that you overlooked such third effect, is about the comparison of America and other countries. Based on the victims of gun violence per year (scaled by populations) you argue against the 'Violence caused by Video Games', due to the fact that other countries have a much lower gun violence. However a big element that is overlooked here are the gun laws and more importantly how easiliy one can receive a gun. If on a global scale agressiveness is increased (for example due to videogames), I can imagine that in a place where somebody can practicaly walk into a convenience store and buy a gun will have a higher increase in shootings compared to other places. (Nevertheless it would be expected that in these other places other weapons, like knives, would be used more often). As such the above elements you mentioned into this video may not be considered as any indication or proof that games do not cause violence. Nevertheless this cannot be use to proof that games cause violence. To conclude this long essay: I love your theories so much and I love the good work you do into this, but certain elements are very hard to explain easily due to all the third effects which could easily be overlooked.

    its rage and addiction causing violence because if someone is insanely addicted to video games they will get upset if they are told or forced to stop playing. but since they are addicted to video games people victimise the games but in reality it is the parents that aren't being responsible by letting their kid play for hours on end. also video games has also been a really popular thing so people on the news will always start controversy because they want attention, money, and views. also rage is a really big thing because if you are playing a really hard game you might take your anger out on other people if your'e an idiot. it is just people with small brains yelling at innocent people because an idiot killed 10 kids. btw im 12 and i am a really big brained individual
