Video games do not make you stupid or violent. There have been countless studies that show that video games have a positive affect. They strengthen your hand-eye coordination and sharpen your reflexes.

I accept this challenge, as I am a firm believer in the fact that violence is a trait that you pick up environmentally.

No. How many hundreds of millions play these games, and how many go on to commit violence because of them? I can blow up tons of aliens on Halo, baddies in LA Noire and other monsters and characters in loads of other games, and not feel any desire or need to harm anyone in real life. Then again, I'm in Britain and America seems to be a different place. Being able to buy all manner of weapons over the counter might have more to do with it.

Be prepared for those who'll complain that video games cause violence, and all that jazz.
