Trump vs Game Industry

Even Trump has been truing to censor the game industry. He is either, misguidedly or cunningly, trying to deflect the blame for violence in America onto our media, specifically games. If he were going after Hollywood too, I could maybe understand.

In this article, the author discusses some of the things Trump is trying to do, and how he may run into some trouble trying to do them.

It's a long article, so I won't talk about it all here, but some shady $&%* is once again going down, and this time in the white house.

A meeting was even called between some of the game industries finest leaders, the President, some members of congress, other anti-game guests, including Dave Grossman. It was a sinister ambush of an innocent industry that simply provides entertainment, just like the film industry. What's worse, the most ridiculous statement I've heard all year comes in this article, to little surprise sadly. Grossman wrote a book that had a statement in it claiming that games were to blame for creating a generation of psycho-killers who "can only be stopped by more guns." I mean, the nerve of the guy. It's so ridiculous it's almost hilarious.

Luckily, not only is the first amendment protecting games as their own form of expression, games are also mainly found online. The internet also has a great deal of first amendment protection.
