Bubba the Love Sponge® Clem on children playing violent video games

April 12th, 2011 by Staff

In his commentary on 10 News at 11 p.m., nationally syndicated radio show host Bubba the Love Sponge® Clem explains why you shouldn’t let your kids play violent video games.

“When a kid sits at video game that is so lifelike that it’s practically real – in fact, so real that the U.S. military is currently using similar games to train soldiers for war – and becomes real good at shooting people, this in my opinion desensitizes the aspect of killing or shooting a gun.”

You can listen to Bubba the Love Sponge® on 102.5 the Bone Mondays through Fridays from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

    Bubba, I went to school for making video games. I couldn’t agree with you more about the parents using video games as a nanny, but as far as desensitizing them I find that hard to believe. Penn and Teller: Bullshit in the Video Games Episode, does an test on a child who has played high amounts of violent video games and actually put a gun in his hand. When the kid was asked to fire the gun at the target he does once, and then breaks down and starts crying. You can obviously tell that no amount of Call of Duty, Halo, or Battlefield could prepare this kid for that.
