    Do you guys think the Jacksonville Madden shooting will change anything for gaming?

    I am sure most of you heard by now about the shooting that happened during a Madden event in Jacksonville.
    Because it was streaming, people got to somewhat witness it which was terrifying.

    Do you guys think this will impact gaming in any way? It seems like video games in general is a prime target for a lot of people when it comes to violence issues. I tend to lean more with bad parenting and media being to blame as well as a lack of general control with guns and violence in school systems.

    I heard about it and saw a couple of videos. I don't think it'll change much. Games like Madden don't tend to get associated with the usual demographic in gaming. So when people hear about gamer shooting sprees, the first thing they'd think of is a first-person shooter like good ol' Doom. Now if this was an Overwatch event the media would be all over it, and while it is getting publicised I think it would have been a hotter topic and would affect the game industry as a whole. That's a bit sad but it's just the way it is.

    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    This is what I was thinking. Anything involving guns and it would have been blown up. It is bad enough they tend to blame violence with children, teens, and young adults on video games but this would give him even more of an excuse even though it likely would be unrelated. I hate that things like this have to happen for people to suddenly care though but I guess that is how the world works these days.

    Probably not, just heightened security.

    No, just like school shootings, the boards won't change a thing.

    I just saw this thread now, and my answer echoes what you guys are saying. I don't think a thing will change. Considering that this thread is from Sept. 1st, I suppose it's safe to say at this point that you were all correct. More shootings have happened since, and even those had no effect.
