I feel like I've just become aware of the simulation and now someone is coming for me.

It's hilarious it was only Dan that was shooting a civilian in the face.

Dan has been in the news twice now this month haha, someone contain that man.

A bit gross they actively looked for the worst footage possible though.

OK, so the most likely reason (that I can guess) is because giantbomb owns www.videogames.com and I gotta assume some white house staffer put that in to find video game stuff.

@bradbrains: The clip in question was taken from Dan's personal Youtube account, though there may be more Giant Bomb stuff in there.

Let's be honest - if we can get a law or Executive Order that bans Dan Ryckert but leaves video games alone, I think we'd all call that a win, right?

Kidding!

Wait, before this goes anywhere else I feel the need to be pedantic and clarify that the clip isn't actually Giant Bomb related but a clip of Dan playing Fallout in an unrelated Youtube video.

Anyway, guess it's time for Dan to announce his run for the Senate.

A man who literally calls for his supporters to attack protesters and reporters is worried about violence in video games. He's like the Leland Yee of politics!

If they really wanted a case of violence stemming from video games they should have just used a super cut of them playing Mario Party.

I have a better idea...compile footage of actual people being shot by actual guns, then summon representatives of the NRA and gun manufacturers to the White House and make them watch it.

The fact that has come from a random video on Dan's fairly inactive personal youtube channel is even weirder than if it had come from a GB video

@stinger061:

to be fair, if you search for 'fallout 4 kills' , his video is the first one.

Seems like a natural search term if you want to highlight the gore of fallout 4.

Excuse me, Mr. President, but the 1990s called; they want their baseless controversy back.

Obama did the same thing after a shooting during his administration. Did Bush have a meeting like this at some point?

But yeah, this is getting old. This just feels like a whole bunch of groups looking for someone to blame and death metal/gangsta rap have fallen out of the public conscience enough for moral guardian types to think that stuff has disappeared. So, same story as always. Hopefully it's the same outcome as always, but with this administration, who fucking knows.

"Haha dan got watched by the president" is not what i take from this exercise in potential censorship in the place of any change in US gun laws.

But we don't talk politics here, so let's just keep laughing and pretend like this isn't incredibly fucked up and another huge distraction.

It is a hell of a coincidence, but the Dan character isn't amusing when it comes to things like this.

@mikemcn: It's a wildly shitty thing, and infuriating on multiple levels, but I don't think taking a second to have a chuckle makes somebody incapable of seeing the importance of a situation. Hell, if I didn't take the time to laugh at Trumplethinskin now and then, my blood pressure would be through the roof by now.

I do understand where you're coming from, though. I just hope that the sheer naked obviousness of this desperate "blame anything at all but the actual problem, because we like the problem" blustering is a sign that they're running out of excuses.

I'm just imagining a post-credits codec call.

[Dan]: I've put together the footage you need under the Media Observation Protocol. The footage is secure, and can be viewed at your discretion...........Mr President

@dixavd: Makes more sense that they just searched YouTube for "Fallout 4 kills" rather than sifting through an hour+ long Quick Look.

This will culminate into Dan defending games to Trump and becoming the head of the Library of Congress's digital curation.
