Violent video games are an outlet to express, and release all negative energy you hold. It is a way to relax and keep sanity, if not, what would happen to most of us, the emotions we keep inside? We would, in a sense, "explode."
I am battling the pro, and I'm battling to win.
I will pretend you are con. If it is true that violent video games do not make teens\preteens then how come in my class any kids who have played "black ops" have threatened to shoot people and only talk about guns?
I'm afraid your classmates lack something vital; SELF-CONTROL. This can trace back to parent negligence. Their unstable kids' behavior cannot be solely blamed by the games they play. Their parents should know of their instability and stop the child from acquiring games of this type.
( I cannot answer this as fully as I would like, but will be here for the next round.)
