Trump Video Game meeting

"The upcoming meeting at the White House will provide the opportunity to have a fact-based conversation about video game ratings, our industry's commitment to parents, and the tools we provide to make informed entertainment choices", it said in a statement.

But Trump said during the meeting that some studies have found a correlation between video game violence and real violence, the White House said.

During the meeting, President Trump "was asking questions and listening to the answers". After the Florida slaughter Trump pointed to video games as a possible contributing factor in firearms violence.

Trump is considering support for a range of legislative options, including toughening up background checks for gun buyers. All three are known to be very outspoken and critical of violence and video games.

A report from the Washington Post suggested some games developers had also been invited to attend, including Take Two Interactive, the publisher of the controversial Grand Theft Auto series. This video has been cobbled together by someone at the White House from various other videos available on YouTube, for inclusion on the official White House channel. He didn't give any speeches.

Fine - whether you personally agree with it or not is not the issue.

The conversation lasted for nearly an hour and was "vigorous" but "respectful", and Trump seemed to be interested in hearing from all sides, said Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council, a group that advocates against violence and sex in entertainment. The decision claimed that video games, like other media, are protected by the First Amendment. According to the paper, Hollywood and particularly the television industry, is offering America's children a nightly blueprint, or dress rehearsal, for the violence that is committed in the nation's school halls with troubling frequency. Older scholars and those who don't like kids are more likely to believe violent games are bad.

Criticizing the violent content in the video games, Donald Trump said that the video games, internet and movies are so violent.

It is not the first time video games have come under scrutiny: a high-profile 1993 congressional hearing spearheaded by Democratic senators targeted games including Mortal Kombat and Night Trap for violent play, with some lawmakers saying the games encouraged or desensitized minors to brutality and bloodshed.

Warning: This video contains extremely violent and disturbing images. "There may be people who lose less".

Unsurprisingly the video features multiple Call of Duty games, Sniper Elite, Fallout, Wolfenstein and Dead By Daylight.

In 2011, the US Supreme Court overruled a California law that banned the sale of certain violent games to children without parental supervision.

"These studies have been rejected by every court to consider them, and with good reason: They do not prove that violent video games cause minors to act aggressively", he wrote.

NAFTZ and its members have been strong supporters of the NAFTA and believe it has been an important factor in making US manufacturing more globally competitive, supporting high-value-added employment in the United States, expanding export markets for USA products and services, promoting efficient supply and value chains, and improving standards of living. What is more interesting is that age is a strong predictor of attitudes among scholars.

Representing the video game industry were the heads of Take-Two (Strauss Zelnick), Bethesda/Zenimax (Robert Altman), the Entertainment Software Association (Michael Gallagher), and the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (Patricia Vance).
