Keep gaming, keep having fun, and I hope you enjoyed the video!


  1. I lost 30,000 games in the blink of an eye…. And the media just fucking watched.

    Share this video if you love gaming and you're not a violent murderer <3

  2. I need a tinfoil hat to watch some of these clips

  3. karens: roblox is inappropriate!1 ban it !!!1!1
    also karens: sure little jimothy timothy i'll buy you GTA

  4. Did David actually cut off Goliath's head?

  5. These anti-gamers are just mad because they lost a 1v1

  6. i'm from a christian family and i have played l4d2
    and here i am till this day not turned into a violent 14 year old
    for me it all depends on how mature you are to understand the context and content of the game

  7. You know what trains children how to be killers? The military. You know what teaches them how to hate? Religion.

  8. Mad props for that Warcraft 3 reference 😍

  9. This war will just be like Vietnam war The gamers will win

  10. I cant belive this was four years ago yet its still a popular topic😆

  11. This should be obvious, but no, shooting guns in games is nothing like real life. As a gun owner and a gamer, I'm especially passionate about these topics. People need to understand what they're talking about before trying to debate it. Looking at you, gun grabbers.

  12. 20:08 nope, in the games it looks easy to pull back the chamber, but actually it isn't. I struggled pulling it back, I still do

  13. 22:44 to be fair, probably because just like NASCAR, in Forza you crash into others to win

  14. They're probably angry that kids are learning to become God with the Sims.

  15. 0:19 played halo 3 and odst for most of my life and I gotta say, I am not pulling up to the school fully outfitted in odst or Mjolnir power armor rocking a ma5 assault rifle prepared for a shootout with the covenant.
