  1. I won't have to buy a new hard drive for the new one unless I get one with higher RPM or if I decide to go RAID. I have a 200GB hard drive in my current PC, so I see no reason in buying a bigger one. Like I said, unless I go RAID, i'll let you guys know how it works out.

  2. That's the entire point. You have your principles, and that's fine. However, thinking everyone should have those same principles is rediculous. Noone here is trying to change any principles you may have. In fact, most of us have that same principle: violence is bad. However, there's a huge difference between violence in games and violence in real life. Again, that's where seperating fact from fiction comes to play.

    As for your reduction in violence over time theory, that isn't a principle, it's a theory, and that theory has been proven to be unfactual.

    Just a guess, but was your mom and/or dad in one of those peaceful hippie movements in the 60's?

  3. video games arent the cause of violence,

    i know vidoe games dont cause violence but should we really make games out of things so serious. I am especially against games based on war. War is something nearly nobody can say they support war's but as soon as i say their is no problem with certain levels of violence some people with sharp tounges will say but technically this type of violence is more like something or another and eventually if i dont draw the line somewhere and stick to it i end up having to retract half my statements so i choose to be against the whole violence concept full stop. That way their can be no "What abouts" or "but in this circumstance"

    You're still not getting it. Games are made for entertainment purposes. Pretty much any content in a game is acceptable, depending on the person playing of course, as long as they can seperate fact from fiction. I'm pretty much reiterating what everyone here and myself have told you many times. The fact that you can't accept why some people may enjoy something while you don't shows your lack of openmindedness and perhaps ignorance. As for your little decline in violence theory, there are too many flaws to even consider it. You need to learn that you've only just begun life and don't know near what you think you do. Learn from others and don't think that since you believe something to be true, that it actually is true.

  5. It's actually around 300,000-400,000 years ago that homo sapiens evolved from homo erectus. Modern humans then evolved about 100,000-200,000 years ago. Close enough though. :wink:

    As I was saying, 70, 2000, 5000 years ago is small apples. Violence even existed in prehuman species. Violence has been around since little amoebas began swallowing each other. :lol:

  6. Modern man is if I remember correcty about 1000 years old' date=' so half of that time was spent in a world filled with war.[/quote']

    You actually are way off. Jesus was born over 2000 years ago, and modern man has existed since long before his time.

  7. Your little explaination is flawed from the beginning. If you add 5000 years onto your 3000b.c., that would bring us to within ~5 years of present day. Other than a few shows in Las Vegas, I see no rich people hosting jousting competitions.

    You're taking little excerpts from history that you think favor your theory when they actually don't. One, much more went on than you mentioned, or could even probably imagine for that matter. Two, 70 years isn't a long time for a war not to have occured. There were spans of hundereds, sometimes thousands of years in certain parts of the world when things stayed relatively peaceful. Even during those peaceful times, violence still surrounded them. It's the same way today. You think since because there isn't a war that violence doesn't surround us? There are so many violence related deaths in the world each day, you would be surprised. Saying that violence is declining because of 70 years without a war is absurd. 70 years isn't a long time. You need to step back and put things in perspective.

  8. Do you have evindnce? I see no citings. You believing in something in no way proves anything. In fact, neither one of us has cited any factual material. However, I would be willing to bet that anyone here would side with my side of this arguement in a heartbeat.
