    (funny picture) omg thats not true
    kids these days grow up with video games
    now a days they dont know how not having games feals
    they know its just a game and nothings new to them
    ......if they actually took the time to see that games arent what they think they might not diss video games so much:

    it's going to take another generation or so before these so called "expert arguments" die down a bit, when the actual video game generation gets in charge of things and can make an accurate judgement of things.

    there's still so many of those people out there saying "oh well when I was a kid I played out doors all day and didnt waste time in the house with videogames!!!" the close minded fool who will always judge before knowing all the facts. just like that one news lady or whomever she was that put out all that bad press about Mass Effect and then admitted she didn't know what she was talking about but rather acting on rumor and speculation and whatnot.

    I myself LOVE violence, i love to watch decapitations and guttings and blood splatters and every other form of gore. When I watch a horror movie I NEED to see guts and blood all over the place or I'm not satisified, and the more tastless it's done the better. BUT....here's the thing, even though I've been exposed to these things since I was in kindergarten, actively seek them out as entertainment and prefer them over most other things and am COMPLETELY desensitized to even the most heinous of violent acts...I STILL have never hurt a fly, and have no desire to do any bodily harm to anyone in any fashion, ever.

    They're just SOOOO reluctant to accept that the parents have failed, that society has failed, extended family has failed. They don't want to take responsibility for the lack of guidance, or that the child may have been mentally unstable and pre-inclined to violence. They just need a scapegoat so they can sleep nice and cozy in their ignorant little worlds.

    Violence and murder of all kinds has existed millenia before video games, where people have acted with malice and total disregard towards one another and they didn't have to be desensitized by media first in order to do it.

    Stupid, stupid people.

    Barbz911, Fox News is a known joke of a news report. Hell, even Jack Thompson defended Mass Effect which made it seem like hell froze over.

    Video games don't make people violent, people already have a subconscious thing if they believe that.
