    I think it's cheap and useless to blame video games for all the violence in the world. Whatever happened to that wonderful thing called "personal responsibility"? For example, I enjoy the GTA series, but I haven't gone around shooting people for fun. If someone can be that affected by video games, they're probably already mentally unstable anyway.

    If you're worried about kids playing those naughty violent video games, the age certificates on the cover should tell you what to expect (granted, I played them back when I was underage, but I reiterate, I'm not killing anyone). As an adult I feel I'm capable of making my own decisions about what I can and can't play.



    I never add friend codes.

    As others have stated, PARENTS ((not the government)) need to start taking responsibility. They always want to blame/sue ANYone else first. The games have a rating on it. They tell you what to expect. If parents don't approve, then DON'T buy it. Start paying attention to what you're children are doing for Christs sake.

    I don't always approve of everything I read/see on the internet, but that doesn't mean I want the government to start banning things that I feel are inappropriate. It's the same bs with all the other violence they complain about. Movies, tv, radio.....nobody is forcing them to listen to this. Change the channel, don't purchase it.....but please, stop whining about it. Take control! Be responsible.

    In my opinion, and what I think, I can only say that these video game-haters either wants something to blame at, just sucks on video games or just hates it.

    I mean, there is as much violence in video games as there are in the history books (though the violence in the books is in another way). I mean, after a kid have readen a history book, he don't go out and kill others with a crown on his head and a sword in his hand and a beard on his face? Hope you'll get my point.

    I don't hate video game-haters, but they sure can make me annoyed sometimes.

    If a child is dumb enough to see an alien shooting a laser and believing it, thats their own problem.

    If a child is dumb enough to believe that they can get shot 10 times while it only takes twice for their enemy to die, thats their own fault.

    If a child is dumb enough to believe that guns are lying on the ground in hidden corners and you can just walk in front of a car to get them to stop, pull them out, hit them once, and take their car, thats the kids own fault.

    See, video games are not near reality. They are far from it. If a child cannot differentiate between reality and make believe, then the parents did not do their job.

    I used to love the ninja turtles, but I never once: threw goo on turtles or rats, jumped in the soar, ordered pizza from beneath the road on a pay phone (who puts phones down there?), or tried to karate chop some guy wearing all black. But...thats all because my parents told me that the turtles werent real, and that I live in reality and cannot do those things.

    No way can video games be held responsible for actions. Some people just have derranged minds. It's not like I play Gears and I am building a Lancer and slaying away on my chainsaw.

    if video games affected kids behaviour then all those who were teens in the 80/90's would all be bouncing around in black rooms, listening to repetitive music while munchng magic pills...

    oddly enough i just watched a Law & Order: SVU, that addressd this. Weird. (a kid raped other kids "because" he watched porn and violent television, let me tell you i watch a lot of porn and i have yet to rape anyone). Yeah basically i think that to a point a video game/movie/music/etc might give a person an idea to do something crazy, but that person would have to be crazy to begin with. there were plenty of murders and things like that long before television and rap music. So do i think the media is to blame? no. Do i think the parents are to blame? sometimes. Generally though i place fault on the person who actually committed whatever crime. If games make people kill people in real life, just by the amount of GTA Series games sold, the human race should be extinct by now. haha
