Trump meets 'Doom' maker and other video game execs

In many mass shootings, such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in CT and the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado, a common denominator was that the shooters were "violent video game fanatics", said Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, who was part of the meeting.

The video was created for a "closed" meeting on Thursday between President Donald Trump and computer game executives, The Verge reports, and is indicative of the USA government's stance on the subject.

President Donald Trump pledged on Thursday the US will show "flexibility' to "real friends" as the White House prepares to roll out steel and aluminium tariffs that have sparked fears of a global trade war".

The reality? What was penned to be a debate on the subject of video game violence appeared in fact to be more of a fact finding mission by the White House. According to Glixel, neither Henson nor any of the other anti-video game advocates in attendance could name any of the games that the scenes came from.

According to Rolling Stone, the video shocked some attendees - though, not any of the game makers. Both the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have taken a stance in recent years against children and teens playing gruesome video games. And surprising nobody, the hour-long meeting produced very few actionable results.

"We discussed the numerous scientific studies establishing that there is no connection between video games and violence, First Amendment protection of video games, and how our industry's rating system effectively helps parents make informed entertainment choices", a statement from the Entertainment Software Association said Thursday after the meeting. Noah pointed out how weird it is that video games are only credited with influencing youths in this one specific way.

It was the latest in a series of meetings Trump has held to talk about how to stop mass shootings at schools. It was the first of many meetings with industry representatives, the White House said.

On the other side of the metaphoric table were staunch critics of video games, chief among them was Brent Bozell from the Media Research Center.

The meeting was called following the deadly shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida in which 17 people died.

Searching for ways to respond to last month's Florida school shooting, Trump has questioned the effect of video games, although decades of research have failed to find a link between gun violence and graphic depictions of violence in games.

The EU's top trade official said Friday that "dialogue" with Washington was the bloc's "prime option" as it seeks to win exemptions from US President Donald Trump's controversial new steel and aluminium tariffs. Also at the meeting were members of the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), tasked with regulating video game content.
