    Do Games Promote Violence?

    In my english class , the teacher had us do this debate thing on violence and what promotes it. Of course games were brought up and were said to be the main cause of Violence. Me personally im kind of on the fence on this one. I mean if you are well educated or even somewhat you should know a game is just a game. And some games show how bad violence can be some, not all of course. However I guess some games get people thinking of different situations they face in their life and how video games solve those problems.

    Your thoughts?

    In various cases it has been proven that some games can provoke violence. One of the main games being the Grand Theft Auto series for both the playstation and xbox consoles.

    If we're going to blame violent video games, why not blame other violent media too? What about films, music, books, or even the news? The Bible's pretty gruesome, there's massacres, rape, pillaging, torture, racism and much more! Bet most people wouldn't be so quick to ban that though (well, maybe Richard Dawkins fans... ).

    Violent video games are just being used by lazy politicians (who've normally never played a game in their entire lives) to try and get themselves off the hook for their own failures, and unfortunately like all good politicians they've fooled just enough people to make their view credible. No need to bother trying to fix society's socio-economic problems when video games are a much easier target, since they're still relatively new and unfamiliar (especially to older people).

    In a democracy that is truly free, people should be allowed to make their own informed choices, not have the Government tell them what is suitable for them. Remember, if you don't like something, you're allowed to not buy it.



    I never add friend codes.

    Tears the head off someone using his hair

    I have been playing violent games all my life and I'm not violent

    AM I ill kill anyone that disagrees


    But on a normal note

    Do movies promote violence
    Does the radio promote violence
    Does that cave wall promote violence
    This goes back years before video games where even thought of

    Its the human mind that can tell if its realty or not
    I still say kids shouldn't play GTAs and manhunt because there aimed at a older crowd
    Most killing in games is to unrealistic

    But admit it wii all have tryed VG moves

    Well, all I have to say is that if someone is ****ed up in the head, by playing GTA I'm pretty sure he will be satisfied by stealing more than 4 cars a day in the video game, or at least less violent. Video game goes far more than real life. But this is just my opinion.

    i had to study a study of this in media studys. and a film can promote violence just as much as a game, it's about the person not the nature of a game, if someone has the pyshco tendinces to perform violenct acts, then they will perform them wether or not a game promotes it.

    people want to ignore movies and try to make a dent in something rather new
    movies promote the most of anything if anything because their mostly real actors....
    not polygons scripted to do so and so
    you can get ideas on how to kill someone anywhere, we should blame places like those like Google and Yahoo, cause we can find it on there
    but hey, why stop there? its because of the internet you can go on google and yahoo, so lets attack the interent!!!
    but wait a second..internet was created for needs to communicate, so lets blame each other for promoting violence, but its our own reasoning to have those people in our lives so lets blame ourselves! and thats where it ends and beings, YOU.
