Leland Yee, the man behind the anti-game legislation in California, (which was struck down in 2011 by the Supreme Court), has stated that gamers don’t have any credibility when it comes to the violent video game debate. Apparently only those who don’t play video games are allowed to chime in on the debate, because they’re oh so unbiased.
Game Informer states that Yee said the following to San Francisco Chronicle:
”Gamers have just got to quiet down. Gamers have no credibility in this argument.”
So basically you can use this reason in other debates as well. Just imagine if you would use this during election when normal people want to debate. “Shut up, you’re no politician. You have no idea how things are run, so you got no saying in this matter”. Wow, did we suddenly transport ourselves into a dictatorship where our thoughts and opinions no longer matter?
