Violent Video Games To Not Be Considered For The Olympics

According to International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, games that are considered violent in nature will likely not be considered for the Olympics. Bach told the South China Morning Post..

“We want to promote non-discrimination, non-violence, and peace among people. This doesn’t match with video games, which are about violence, explosions, and killing. And there were have to draw a clear line.”

While Bach didn’t specifically mention which titles he was referring to, they perceive violence is against “Olympic values.” Further stating..

“So if ever somebody is competing at playing football virtually or playing other sports virtually, this is of high interest. We hope that, then, these players are really delivering sports performance. If [fans] at the end would even play the sports in the real world, we would even be more happy.”
