Alright I want a rematch seeing as you won. Video Games are not too violent because me being 12 play games like COD all the time and Silent Hill and Slenderman, but I will still will have nightmares after seeing a real dead person. With a video game you know its fake so you have nothing to worry about when playing it.

I know that most video game players are good people who wouldn't actually hurt anyone else and I know that video games just games. Also all my cousins and most of my friends play video games and they're all good people. Video games and tv shows or movies that have lots of violence desensitize people to violence. When they see pictures of actual dead people on the news they're less likely to be grossed out or saddened by it. That doesn't mean people who play video games don't have emotions or are psychopaths or that they never get saddened by images of actual dead people but they are less likely to. Also we shouldn't premodern violence. Violence is only good for self defense.
BTW I also play slender man. It's pretty scary and it's really fun but it's not that bloody or violent.

Video games might not be on the same level as some stuff when it comes to desensitizing people to violence but video games are deffidentally brain washing many young men into doing horrible things when they become soldiers and to off to Iraq or Afghanistan. Video games might not he telling people to kill someone the way greed, anger, money, passion or fear does but it's a part of our problem. Video games make young people to used to violent images.

I can break bones, I can inflict injury without hesitation, and I laugh at pain. But I still get sick when I see a fresh kill.
