Joe Biden recalls meeting ‘arrogant, creepy’ games industry figure

The New York Times did not appear to press Biden on specifying which game developers he met with, or to elaborate further on his thoughts. "Let's get the words out Joe.'" That led Sully, who's a national hero for doing an emergency landing for US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River, to call out Lara in an essay for The New York Times, published on January 18.

Democratic presidential candidate, former vice president Joe Biden, speaks at the Iowa State Educators Association (ISEA) forum at the Sheraton West Des Moines Hotel in West Des Moines, Iowa on January 18.

"And at one point, one of the little creeps sitting around that table, who was a multi- - close to a billionaire - who told me he was an artist because he was able to come up with games to teach you how to kill people", Biden said.

The interviewer interrupted Biden at this point to try and clarify that he was talking about video games, by asking "like video game", to which Biden agrees. He continued, using the words "righteous" and "overwhelming arrogance" in describing people who work in technology and game development in Silicon Valley. "And one of those righteous folks explained to me that, you understand, 'We will be the economic engine of America". As I added up the seven outfits, everyone's there but Microsoft.

"It is not healthy to have these games teaching the kids the dispassionate notion that you can shoot somebody and just, you know, sort of blow their brains out", Biden said in an interview with CNN. Trump was impeached last month by the US House Representatives for "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" relating to the alleged claim that he withheld aid from Ukraine in an effort to force an investigation into Biden's involvement with Burisma and his role in Shokin's firing. We can do what we want to do.

Calling it a "malicious and conclusively debunked conspiracy theory" that a conflict of interest existed when Hunter was on the board, Biden's campaign said there's no evidence to back claims made by the right. Back in 2013 if he had been Vice President he wholeheartedly viewed no legal problem taxing violent media.

Regardless, even if violent video games are no longer in focus at the moment, as was the case in the past, Biden does not seem to have mitigated them. That year The Gambling Organization even published an open letter requesting him to have a look at research indicating there is no connection between violence and video games. But, when it concerns the connection between shootings from the U.S. of America and matches the correlation doesn't seem to make much sense.
