Jumanji: Is VIDEO GAME VIOLENCE ETHICAL | Welcome to the Jungle | Space Taste

Is VIDEO GAME VIOLENCE destroying society?? We deep dive into Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to find out! Big thanks to our friend 24 Frames of Nick for shouting us out! Comment if he sent you 🙂

Nick likes High School Musical 2 and makes great video essays on your childhood nostalgia

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.

This video is not sponsored by Sony. We just love sci-fi, board games, Jumanji, comic books, movies and deep diving into the world of Jumanji and the ethics behind the franchise.

Halloween III: Is MARKETING TO CHILDREN Ethical?? | Season of the Witch Breakdown | Spacetaste

Is MARKETING TO CHILDREN ethical? We deep dive into Halloween III: Season of the Witch to find out! It’s only a few more days to HALLOWEEN. Comment your thoughts and opinions!

SUBSCRIBE to Space Taste: https://goo.gl/hGLtLc

VIDEO SUMMARY

Season of the Witch (1982) explores hypnotic marketing tactics that lure children into the deadliest Halloween trick of all time. And although this sci-fi horror mystery is clearly fiction, it’s a scarily accurate representation of the power of corporate manipulation. It’s also the only film in the franchise that DOES NOT feature Michael Myers. Penned as a standalone story in a separate universe from the John Carpenter classic, Halloween 3 follows Doctor Daniel Challis as he investigates a shady corporation called Silver Shamrock, run by an elderly CEO who controls men in black and commands them to murder those who know too much.

Halloween is the one time of the year where myths and legends of old pagan traditions are celebrated as consumers favor superstition over science and spend over 9 billion dollars on everything from candy to costumes. And while the cash pours into the pockets of corporate CEO’s, you’re likely to believe that they pose no threat to consumers, right? Well, we’d like to think so. But what would happen if these billion-dollar head honchos didn’t care about money, but instead, human sacrifice?
The sci-fi horror movie explores marketing to children through corporate advertising of Halloween masks. This showcases how far marketing will go especially with the inclusion of the men in black (androids). They’re led by a CEO and ex-toymaker warlock who carries on the Celtic tradition of sacrificing every child who purchases their Halloween mask. Each Silver Shamrock Mask is equipped with a computer chip hidden beneath their metal tags, along with a piece of stolen stone hedge. Once these masks are triggered, the results are explosive. Michael Meyers would be proud.

Silver Shamrock is similar to Kellog’s or Mcdonald’s, companies which spend billions in marketing directly marketing to children.Is it right for corporations to influence such a young demographic? When does targeted advertising go too far?
In a 1994 New York Times article, Scientists at the Philip Morris Cigarette Company found evidence 11 years prior that a substance in cigarettes was as addictive as nicotine. When this research was discovered, it was halted by the company, and as a result, their lab was shut down. This sleazy move exhibits just how far companies will go to protect their products, even if they know they aren’t safe. Although cigarettes aren’t currently marketed directly to children, as they have in the past, other potentially harmful products are.
Kool-aid, Froot Loops, and Coca Cola three products are liquid crack marketed to children. Just like the silver shamrock commercials, their product advertising is often deceiving and hypnotic. Vivid colors, zany characters, and the promise of how awesome you’ll be if you decide to consume.
Marketing tactics aside, consuming these products in moderation is OK. Childhood would be depressing and horror-filled with only vegetables to eat. Aend of the day, these companies are still marketing liquid crack to children WHICH begs the question, is marketing unsafe or unhealthy products to children using deceptively hypnotic techniques ethical? We say NO. If corporations know that their product is unsafe or unhealthy, they shouldn’t be advertising them to the young and impressionable in a manipulative manne regardless if in a sci-fi film or not.
Halloween III: Season of the Witch is the ultimate scary scenario of what happens when corporate manipulation goes too far. Is mass corporate sacrifice by an evil warlock likely to happen? No. Not really. But it can. And that’s enough for us to be on edge.
What do you think? Should there be limitations on advertising campaigns? And marketing to children in particular? Have you ever seen an unethical commercial? Do you believe it’s NOT the advertiser’s responsibility to ensure that their product are up to standards?
