    This is the most boomer 'hrr drr video games bad' thing I've seen in a while... What about movies? If violent games are such a problem are you going to ban violent movies too, hell might as well ban all songs that reference drugs because that's clearly what's causing the drug problem. (obligatory /s)
    I'd like to see literally any piece of evidence proving that video games like GTA V have "become an issue".

    I sincerely hope this doesn't pass.

    sof006 reacted to Jet_ski in Stadia port of Terraria canceled after co-creator is locked out of his Google accounts   
    Google and other big internet companies need to hire some actual humans to do things that require human intervention. They shouldn’t be allowed to let some algorithm run without any supervision or this kinda stuff keeps happening. A while back it was Bitcoin scams on YouTube that used people’s name and brands to scam people. Now this.
     
    There’s nothing worse than a company that doesn’t have people you could call directly to fix an issue.

    sof006 reacted to SADS in Activision Bans More than 60,000 Accounts For Cheating   
    Summary
     Activision today banned over 60,000 accounts from Call of Duty: Warzone for cheating. This appears to have come as a response to some high profile players quitting the game due the volume of players cheating.

    In my opinion, this is a bit of a shitty move from Activision. It seems that Activision had the power to do something about the amount of hackers very easily and very quickly. It took them just a day after news of Vikkstar's quitting breaking the news to make all these bans, so why didn't they do something about it sooner?
    This has surely been a problem for a long time, it's only now that it's actually causing them bad publicity that they've taken any action.

    Err, at the age of 13 you don't have the legal authority to authorise a video of that nature in any capacity.
     
    There shouldn't have been even the slightest bit of doubt from Twitter, as soon as the phrases "13 years old" and "sexual content" were combined Twitter should have pulled it instantly.

    It shouldn't matter if it's their 'IP' or not nor should this be seen as 'illegal'. If it's something from like so long ago and isn't that widely available anymore, they shouldn't care about it, just let them play.

    Did anyone really trust that Apple did what they claimed and respected the privacy of customers? Cause I sure as hell didn't, and I'm not surprised by this.

    Your lack of "online" privacy has apparently carried over to activity you do offline. I think it's safe to say there isn't anything you do ever, that isn't tracked, collected, monitored, shared, etc. It's spiraling out of control and it's very hard to manage. I really hope Linux becomes more viable in the coming years so I can completely make the switch from Windows.

    Like I said in the CPU thread when almost all AMD CPUs were sold out in minutes, if this forum isn't full of inane and completely unfounded conspiracy theories about AMD like they have been about Nvidia then I'll be very disappointed. 
    But my guess is that it won't.
