The White House releases games violence montage

Selective scenes, or an accurate representation?

The White House has today released a graphic, violent video games montage that seems to reflect its stance on violence in gaming today.

The video, seen below, pulls clips from titles including Dead by Daylight, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Sniper Elite 4 and more.

Of course, it also includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s infamous “No Russian” mission.

“The President acknowledged some studies have indicated there is a correlation between video game violence and real violence,” the White House said of a meeting between President Trump and the ESA in a statement that accompanied the video. “The conversation centered on whether violent video games, including games that graphically simulate killing, desensitize our community to violence.”

What do you think of the video above? Does it accurately reflect the state of gaming today?
