Well, I’m fairly certain they don’t cause violence, so no.

You see, when I was younger, and still in contact with the piece of shit who is on my birth certificate (really, he’s a piece of shit. I’m not just being all angsty teenager here. I’m glad I don’t have contact with him), he had a computer. I, as a 6 or so year old kid, wanted to play games. Wanna know what game I ended up playing, that was my favorite? Doom. If you don’t want to click the link… it’s a pretty violent game. It’s been called a murder simulator by many video game critics. This copy even had a mod installed where instead of one of the monsters, there was a floating Bill Clinton head….

I’ve never killed anything in real life, besides scary bugs and the hopes of people asking me out :-p. So…I don’t really buy that. Recently did an hour long presentation about a similar thing, where it was found that it only really has an effect on children if they’re playing the violent video game for over 15 hours a game.

So no, I don’t want to ban violent video games. I wouldn’t give the to a kid (just because I don’t like introducing kids to violence. But that’s a different story…) but that doesn’t mean adults shouldn’t be allowed to play them. And if you’re a parent…play with your kid, don’t treat video games like a baby sitter. If you find something you don’t want your kid to encounter, use it as a teaching moment, or a discussion moment, so that the kid can learn from it or whatever.

Hello world!

Hi!

I know I have an about me page, but starting my blog without an introduction just doesn’t seem right somehow.

You can call me Momo. I’m a 21-year-old female college student. I’m a psychology major, but I LOVE computers. I can’t program worth a damn, but I’ve built multiple desktops and have replaced pretty much all the important parts on my laptop, from the mobo to the wireless card (and all sorts of assorted things in between). I’ve also made multiple websites, and have done sorts of assorted random things on/to my computers. I have very little sympathy for people who get their computers infested with all sorts of viruses/spyware/etc. Would you drive a car without knowing how to take care of it? Then why use a computer without teaching yourself how to do what’s necessary to make sure it runs? But I digress…

I also like video games. My favorites at the moment are games involving Yoshi or Zelda…yeah, I’m a bit of a Nintendo fangirl… I also like the Final Fantasy games, my favorite being 9.  Puzzle games like Portal and World of Goo also are fantastic. I’ll really play almost anything when I’m bored enough/in the right company. FPS’s are my least favorite, but they too have their time and place.

I also read comics. I’m trying to catch up with Batman, although I’m convinced I have ADD, so it’s kinda hard to sit down and read them sometimes. I wish the OCD I had would counteract that, but it’s too busy making me do crazy shit, like taking a certain amount of steps in each square on the sidewalk and not stepping on cracks.

Yeah, I’m a little crazy. Like the blog title says: Abnormally Psychotic. :-p

I plan on writing about..well, pretty much anything and everything. Some of it’ll be about stuff from my everyday life, some of it will be about current events stuff I find, and some of it might just be me ranting about stuff that angers/upsets me, or I’ll explain my position on something.  I’ll try to update on average once a week. I created this blog so that I can force myself to write more. So, we’ll see how well this goes…

Any other questions, feel free to leave a comment. I like to share, and I’m usually quite friendly, I promise!!
