VIDEO SUMMARY
Video games are significant in modern society. Each year, gamers spend billions on violent games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty. But while the consumer spending increases, so does the advancement in gaming technology. This allows for increasingly life-like graphics that blend reality and simulated fiction. We all know that with great power comes great responsibility, but does the same apply to video games? What effect do video games have on the young and impressionable? Won’t anyone think of the children? Should video game developers limit the violence they put in games? Let’s dive into Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to find out. The 2017 fantasy is a continuation of Robin William’s classic.
In the lush world of Jumanji, there exists machine gun toting bad guys, deadly hippos, and… Nick Jonas? While the fantasy film itself isn’t inherently violent, it’s mostly a comedy, the premise of the film involves real life or death stakes in a video game. In Jumanji, each character in the film gets three lives, and once those lives run out, they permanently die.
If video games could kill, no one would play them. So why was Jumanji created? Much like Zathura, it’s origins are unclear. We can assume that the game was likely created by some disgruntled wizard who was fired from his game job.
Jumanji is dangerous. In fact, it’s probably the most dangerous video game ever made. Are real video games just as harmful?
The video game industry is no stranger to controversy, especially with recent studies linking adolescent aggression to gaming. The results of a meta-analysis of 24 studies from around the world found that children become more aggressive as they play violent video games.
But, aggression is a fairly general noun, so don’t jump to conclusions. Aside from the click-bait headlines, the finer print tells us that although the effect of video game induced aggression is minimal.
According to a 2018 national survey, 52% of American adults think violent video games lead to more violence in our society. Are video game developers at fault for the violence they put in their games? Is there a correlation between real world violence and real world gamers? Not that we’ve seen. For many Americans, there’s still a big distinction between animated violence and real world violence.
If 52% percent of American adults think that violent video games lead to more violence in our society, the answer isn’t to ban or water down games, but rather to implement stricter laws on who’s purchasing them. The ESRB exists for a reason. Developers shouldn’t have limitations on what they choose to put into their games. Unless of course they’re choosing to put in real human beings in a deadly magic jungle.
Are violent video games ethical? We say YES. Absolutely.
Even if studies continue to find negative correlations between young children, aggression, and video games, the solution isn’t to dilute our gaming experiences, but to have stricter age limitations on games. Maybe parents shouldn’t buy Red Dead Redemption 2 for their child?
While 52% of American adults harbor negativity towards AAA video game titles, the rest of us will be blasting away enemies in badass virtual worlds. What do you think? Are violent video games ethical? Comment below, subscribe, and we’ll see you Jumanji jungles.

Happy Hobbit: Bilbo Brownie Bites – Episode 87

Join Fili as she makes a chocolately surprise to welcome Kili home!

Recipe:

INGREDIENTS

Nonstick cooking spray, for the pan
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.

Heat the butter together with the unsweetened chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat, whisking occasionally, until fully melted and smooth. Sprinkle in the cocoa powder while whisking; whisk until smooth. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Stir in the sugar and vanilla until just combined. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the flour until just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, distributing it evenly.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely, then flip out onto a cutting board. Cut the brownies into bite-size pieces and transfer to a baking rack.

Put the bittersweet chocolate in a medium bowl. Heat the cream over medium-high heat until the edges begin to bubble, 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately pour the cream over the chocolate. Allow to sit for 2 minutes, then stir until smooth.

Spoon the ganache over the brownie pieces until completely covered. At this point, you can sprinkle whatever you want on the top. Be sure to hide these from your sister who has rolled in Farmer Maggot’s manure, and enjoy!
