The Culling crafts a bloody battle royale

    
32

In a happier, more peaceful world we would be sharing with you a new game called The Cuddling, in which everyone hugs and no one loses. But this is a bloodthirsty culture that embraces cutthroat survival games, so instead we’re going to introduce you to The Culling.

The Culling is a battle royale-style game in which players are sent out to scavenge for weapons, build traps, and revel in the fountains of blood that pop in every encounter. The core mode is a 16-player fight to the death (there are no respawns), with a 20-minute timer ticking down thanks to a poison gas cloud that is closing in from all sides. Our legal department says that we are not allowed to draw comparisons to H1Z1 or The Hunger Games in this paragraph.

The Culling will begin early access on March 8th with an eye for a 2017 launch. We’ve got its announcement trailer for you after the jump.

Actually no. Alois has been described as short-tempered but that is an opinion and there’s simply no way of knowing if he beat his wife. It doesn’t matter if he did though because of how rampant that sort of behavior was back then. You could slap your wife in public and nobody would bat an eye, let alone call the police because it wasn’t a crime back then. The main strife between Adolf and his father was his father wanting him to pursue an actual career and Adolf just wanted to be an artist. 
And he wasn’t homeless for that long. He eventually became roommates with a Jewish guy that he was friends with. Riddle me that. His experiences in WW1 did instill him with a sense of national pride, but that is not uncommon for veterans of wars. Hitler didn’t become anti-semitic until after the war when he was influenced by the rampant anti-semitic propaganda going around back then. I could go on and on about it but there have already been countless profiles of Hitler’s psychopathy. Go read a couple of those before you start regurgitating your History channel wiki blurbs.
You’re right that people with psychopathic tendencies don’t always become violent later in life if they’re brought up in a loving environment, but there have been plenty of psychopaths who were brought up in a loving environment and ended up becoming violent later in life anyway. There’s also been people with psychopathic tendencies raised in unloving environments who grew up to not be violent. There’s a great book you might want to read called “The Psychopath Inside” by neuroscientist James Fallon.
And you obviously either didn’t read my entire comment earlier or didn’t comprehended it because I said literally everything affects a child’s development which creates so many variables that it is virtually impossible to simply blame it on one thing like video games. I don’t want any media censored or controlled. A warning label and/or rating system is good enough. 
If you’re a parent buying your 10 year old some incredibly violent video game because you didn’t care enough to think about what the “Mature” rating means, then you’re just a shitty parent. We shouldn’t be censoring artists (and game developers are artists) just because bad parents don’t want to take responsibility for what they expose their children to. It’s not Grand Theft Auto’s fault that your 10 year old is picking up hookers and beating them to death in a dark alley. It’s yours. 
Everyone complains about kids getting lazy when it was the parents who got lazy first. They want the government to step in so they don’t have to step up. But even if they kept their kids away from violent games etc, those kids could still end up being serial killers. In the end, parents have to educate themselves on mental health issues so they can know what to look for in their children and get them the help they need. Taking away their Call of Duty game isn’t going to make them want to shoot up a school any less.

Karl_Hungus Quincha Bluetouchpaper Oyjord Its well documented Hitlers father Alois was a violent short tempered man who was known to beat his wife ( and probably Adolf too ) So you are completely wrong about that ( look it up). 

I would also think his experiences of being homeless and living on the streets and his experiences in the trenches of the first world war influenced his character . 

He may have been genetically been born with a predisposition to being a psychopath of course but as it explained in that video such people when they are brought up in a loving environment don’t always become violent in later life . So your comment shows you have no clue about Hitlers personal family history . 

I think you have totally missed the point about a child being born with the “warrior” gene or you have not understood it . Such a child being brought up in a violent environment will have vastly increased chances of becoming a violent adult that one that doesn’t . 

And we already have such “Censor Police” to protect children which is why their are age recommendations for games and movies for the very reasons I have stated . If you are seriously suggesting that games with a lot of extremely violent content do not effect children all I can say is I hope to god you are never a parent because you are not fit to be one . 

I personally don’t think violent games effect adults in any meaningful way .Lets face it there is a lot worse available on the internet . 

I would imagine you would agree that a game where sexual violence towards women or a game where racist attacks are part of the game play would not be good for the individual playing them or society in general for that matter ? So if that is the case then you yourself would want some controls on what is out there .

Literally everything a child experiences is going to affect their brain development. That creates so many variables that it’s virtually impossible to blame just one thing. Hitler had a fairly normal childhood for the most part. He had a loving mother and a strict father, but he was no more strict than was considered the norm back then. Hitler wasn’t abused or anything like that. He did have a little brother who died when Hitler was still a kid, and they were close, so that loss could be seen as a catalyst but plenty have experienced a similar loss and didn’t grow up to be a mass-murderer.
Many of the documented psychopaths throughout human history had relatively normal childhoods while many people who’ve had upbringings you’d expect to turn them into psychopaths ended up being fine. Obviously they were still affected in some way. Climbing and falling out of a tree will affect a kid. It could make them more daring to try again, eventually growing up to climb Everest. It could make them develop life-long phobias of falling and they’ll never climb anything again. So are we just going to cut down every tree now just to be safe?

We could employ the Censor Police to create an ultra-sterile environment free of violence in media and it’s still going to lead to psychopaths cropping up at the same rate they do now, that they’ve always been. It’s not just the experiences that a child has in the post-natal experience but the pre-natal as well, on top of genetic dispositions. A shortcut around rational thinking is to immediately blame something like video games because ignorance fosters fear and fear leads to nonsequitorial leaps in an attempt to make the unknown become known.

Worth a watch . Psychopaths brains have diminished orbital cortex and temporal lobe activity . A lot depends on upbringing and child hood experience as to how violent they will be in later life . It can happen to people who have had a brain injury that effects those parts of the brain too . 

Also studies on children have found that the type of activities they do actually effects how the brain develops and what parts of the brain become more or less active . That being a fact , a child playing a lot of extremely violent video games brain would almost certainly develop in different way to one that is not a way that would make them more disposed to violence . 

I am not sure who did that study you linked but they are obviously ignorant of the studies done on children’s brain activity which have observed the changes I am talking about . 

We know a hell of a lot now about how the brain develops in childhood and all indications point to article you linked being wrong . I prefer the real science the one based on observation not the internet mockery of the real thing .
