It depends. E-rated games are bad for your kids. M-rated games are the most educational. XD

Sometimes they want to act out after bashing zombies and villains with the clicker!. Reality sets in I guess.

No, it increases hand-eye coordination, keeps you out of trouble, provides stimulation for your brain. Although too much of videogames and addiction can be bad things, nothing serious is going to result in the developement of the persons brain.

Research shows that exposure to violent video games, TV shows, and movies does contribute to increased levels of violence in children. Children learn--and imitate--what they see. And they don't differentiate between real violence and imitation violence. They don't understand that, unlike what they see in those make-believe worlds where people who are shot, subsequently get up and walk away, are not at all like the real world. Children don't really understand death. They don't understand its permanence or the fragility of the human body.

You do realize your statement is more conclusive than Any report ever made on the subject? Have you been reading up on politicl statements? There have been quite a few against the industry in question.

How is any video game worse than the sopranos an award winning show?

Here is a link to an article where a Rockstar employee make that comparison:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/M-Rated-GTA-Grand-Theft-Auto,10484.html

And for the science? This article has statements of how bad video games are and refers to studies claiming they're not that bad at all.

It's the whole nature vs nurture thing. When I played grand theft auto , I didn't go out shooting and boosting cars. Depends on if the kid has a desire to act out violence. My driving can be pretty reckless at times tho, but that is just my nature.

Most studies on the subject show little or no connection between video games and antisocial behaviour. It is clear that if video games do contribute to violent behaviour it is not the primary cause.

The majority of children today play video games, so if video games made a relevant contribution to the developement of antisocial tendencies the spike in sales of violent video games would also cause a spike in violence, however the opposite is happening, there is less violence now than before.

The typical argument is that "violent children play video games", but seeing as 90% of boys and 40% of girls play video games the following statement would be much more alarming; "violent children don't play video games", as it would make a causal link more likely.

Also, it's strange how violence in a picture, movie or painting can be recognized as having a message beyond what we see, but in a video game it is always considered tp glorify it. Games are pieces of art and should be recognized as such, and as with all art some are better than others and people will appretiate different qualities of the same game.

Who we are makes much greater impact on what we see than what we see makes an impact on who we are.

I have only hears of one study showing this link, I believe it was Japanese, however this is not the most common conclusion of studies on the subject.

No. Some kids play video games to release their anger on zombies or their enemy team. Basically, video games are like a stress reliever for your child
