Video games cause violence like a book tells you to murder your pet aardvark. Not very logical a persons actions are their own it has nothing to do with their choice of entertainment. Just another laughable excuse used to evade punishment.
Hi, Carlos. In my opinion, it doesn't help at all. And when you have someone that tends to have a violent or angry type personality anyway, after a while, they can look at these games as being real and they don't even think twice about what they're doing. Then they go out in public and don't think twice about killing someone either. It's just another game. Of course, I'm not saying this applies to everyone who plays these games, but I think if a person watches or participates in a lot of violent stuff, it can become second nature to them, especially if they have some type of mental problem to begin with.
some times it depends on how the person is, if they can not separate their self from the game and reality then they will start to think violent and if they can not do anything with their violent thoughts then they start to think negative and grow to become a negative person in general. so little kids should stay away from such violent games and if they do play those games then they should only play a little
For certain people maybe. It's a parents duty to watch if their kids behavior changes after playing these games and start doing some parenting by banning the child from anything that causes bad behavior. Other than that each of us are responsible for how we act. Even children. Some day when we face our Creator, He will ask each of us to account for our life. Blaming others or inanimate objects probably won't fly with Him.
Generally not. Violent video-games, books, and films, for the most part, do not create monsters like we saw in Newtown. However, we do know that not all people react the same way to a borage of violent stimuli - some people - for any number of reasons - blur the line between cathartic fiction and reality. Compare this to alcoholism - most people can drink socially and never develop alcoholism - but those with the right genotype for addiction - will develop the disease. We are now uncovering genotypes that indicate a predilection to a host of illnesses - which - if you know you have it - you can keep it dormant (unexpressed - not developing into a phenotype) - addiction and addictive personalities have a strong correlation to these inheritable genotypes (multiple genes involved) - but it will take "nurture" - the life experiences and exposure to such chemicals to activate the latent gene - resulting in full blown addiction. Scientists believe those that blur violent media with reality are carrying a genotypical predilection for committing violent / aggressive acts, of all types, given the right stimuli during their early years of life.
