As we've previously reported, Donald Trump is now embarking on a crusade against violence in videogames - even though there's been consistent proof that the link between violent videogames and violence in real-life is negligible at best.

As part of Trump's utterly misguided, totally ridiculous attempt to limit mass shootings, the White House's official YouTube account posted this video montage of violent videogames - all of them from about five or six years ago, and all of them pretty much the most gratuitous examples you can think of.

Here's the video. Bonus points if you can name every game.

According to a report by the Washington Post, Robert Altman, the CEO of ZeniMax, the parent company for games such as Fallout, Strauss Zelnick, the chief executive of Take Two Interactive, which is behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise, and Michael Gallagher, the chief of lobbyist group Entertainment Software Association, were all in attendance at a meeting in the White House where the above video was shown to a range of politicians, including Florida's Marco Rubio.

Trump is apparently bothered by violent content in videogames, but it's nothing new in American culture and it's something that previous administrations have tried to tackle. Of course, the irony of all this is the fact that every single one of the games featured in the video are available here in Ireland - and we have some of the tightest gun-control laws in the world.

So, really, the question is whether violent videogames is causing mass shootings or it's just the availability of guns - and the answer is pretty obvious.
