I think that they do not make children violent and adults just blame all violence of a child on a video game if they play violent games. Let's face it. Almost all male children between the ages of 11 and 14 play video games and the majority of the games are violent. Action video games are proven through tests at a university to give players better reaction times and quicker problem solving skills. Games do not make kids violent but other reasons maybe like undiagnosed mental conditions, problems at home, or maybe they were just born of violent nature. Overall I believe games do not make kids violent or encourage or make children want to kill or hurt others. Please respond if you have a different point of view or if you agree with me.

Video games in which you advance yourself in an ultra-realistic make-believe world by killing others simply are not appropriate for minors to play. When children immerse their minds in a murderous battle to survive, there is a certain indisputable chance that children will be imprinted by this murderous mindset. I know that every child is unique, and that most children will not be permanently affected by these violent games, but some will, and until such time as we can deduce which children will be permanently affected by violent, graphic video games, all children under a certain age should be banned from playing them. I know that in most cases a small label at the top of a video game will not stop a child from playing the game, but is it not our responsibility to at least try to act? Children at play no longer play tag, or hop-scotch, or Frisbee, they play their own derivations of violent, murderous video games. You simply cannot find yourself non-intrigued by that. I know one thing for certain, and that is that I prefer the children I watch grow up not imagine they are murdering their fellow playmates each time they interact with one another.
