Violence in Movies and Video Games



Nowadays, we can find more violence surrounding our environment than in the past and although we might ignore it, this is having a great impact in the world. Kids and young adults are more exposed now with the use of video games and with a broader choice of violent movies and TV channels. As a result, we a living in a more violent world and we haven’t even notice or we just take it as normal, when it shouldn’t be like that.

Too Many Dicks – Video Games Remix



Flattr This! http://flattr.com/thing/101126/Too-Many-Dicks-Video-Games

This remix was inspired by Sloane’s “Star Trek Dance Floor” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deQuFc3BP74

It is no secret that most video games star overly muscular men often carrying big swords, guns, baseball bats, chainsaws and other phallic weaponry. Many of these games normalize a macho masculinity and glorify war and the military. They especially celebrate grotesque displays of violence. Few popular games provide any opportunity for creative non-violent forms of conflict resolution and with the ever growing graphic technology, the blood and gore seem to look more and more real. And now with first person shooter games, players can really experience the destruction and gore up close and personal.

Not only are these games dominated by male characters but even the few women characters who get staring roles are replicating the overly patriarchal, violent, macho behaviour all wrapped up in a hyper sexualized body. Not surprisingly the vast majority of game producers, designers and writers are men.

To put it simply, there are too many dicks on the dancefloor!

***Note: there are two games in this video that I offer as improvements of the more traditional games I’m critiquing. A clip of Portal appears during the line “Easy to Fix” and it is a game of non violent conflict resolution where the protagonist is a woman although you hardly see her during the game. On the lyric “Not Enough Sisters” there is an image of the protagonist from Mirror’s Edge which stars a woman in a dystopian future who is not hypersexualized.
