Joe Biden Calls Silicon Valley Gaming Developers “Creeps”
According to Joe Biden during a recent New York Times interview, some Silicon Valley gaming developers are creeps who develop games that teach people how to kill. Although there’s no evidence that gaming has been linked to violence, Biden claims that people should be open to new information discovered on the matter moving forward. He made suggestions about blowing up the gaming network and put developers down for having less employees than General Motors’ layoffs. Though Joe Biden is running for president this year, he proved that he’s still behind the times in this interview.
“You may recall, the criticism I got for meeting with the leaders in Silicon Valley, when I was trying to work out an agreement dealing with them protecting intellectual property for artists in the United States of America,” siad Joe Biden. “At one point, one of the little creeps sitting around that table, who was a multi-millionaire, 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.” Although there are games that show a lot of violence portrayed towards human characters, we aren’t aware of any mainstream titles that teach gamers to kill people specifically.
“One of these righteous people said to me that, you know, ‘we are the economic engine of America. We are the ones.’ And fortunately I had done a little homework before I went,” continued Biden. “I said, you know, I find it fascinating. As I added up the seven outfits, everyone’s there but Microsoft. I said, you have fewer people on your payroll than all the losses that General Motors just faced in the last quarter, of employees. So don’t lecture me about how you’ve created all this employment.” Although Joe Biden speaks about game developers being arrogant, he comes off as arrogant himself.
