In Topic: GUN ownership, Killings - a US epidemic

02 October 2015 - 10:50 AM

I strongly believe this is a mental health concern, not a weapon ownership concern.


Unfortunately, these two things are tied together slightly.  While yes, someone with poor mental health without access to a gun might fly into a rage and start trying to knife children, they are far less likely to kill people:(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chenpeng_Village_Primary_School_stabbing).

While someone with poor mental health and fairly easy access to a gun ends up doing far worse.

You know that gun-related violence and mass shootings in the US are decreasing in frequency, right?

In Topic: What do gamers prefer, graphics or gameplay

But what if I prefer silent films? =)  Or I guess there is a thriving bastion of Text Adventure games out there.  But then is it the writing (subbed in for graphics) or the clever puzzles?


(But I agree, totally pointless exercise)

I think you should quit while your ahead, maybe head to the pub.

In Topic: Currency in post-apoc / zombie world?

Yeah, ammo is a fun currency, the Metro series had that.  Military grade ammunition was worth more, while home grown ammunition was worth much less.  Which gave you your Gold and Silver.  It has some interesting gameplay aspects tied to it.
