yes it should it does depend on the person the video games don't choose if you kill a person you do
owlsarehappy

Con

I do not believe violent video games should be sold in stores. It has been proven in most people that violent video games boost aggression and bad behavior. I guess that you could say it depends on what frame of mind you are in whilst playing on them. If you are angry then you may pick up on some of the actions and use them. People tends to learn some bad words from violent games and they able to apply it to the real world. Children nowadays shout at their parents which is not a good thing. Students actions change after amount of time playing these games. Violence in school can occur. Addiction to these games can affect someone, and how they interact with people. Violent video games put ideas in a persons head that can really change a person negatively.

In recent studies, "Violent video games, is one of the factors seen as the possible cause of high shooting incidents in schools". Should the games be sold in stores? I do not think so, but if they are, I believe that you should at least have to be a certain age to have access to these games. Some people in the military use violent video games as part of their training. Are those the kind of games we want to allow teenagers and kids to play?

Where are you getting these "recent studies"? Every legitimate study I've ever known to be performed has shown no link between violent video games and violent behavior. It's just a tired and overdone media issue that comes up once every year or two.

I believe it should be sold in stores. But only mature people should play it. I have played violent games since I was a kid and I'm not changed at all. I'm not a psycho killer or something. Yes it should. Parents just need to watch there kids and decide if they are mature enough to realize.....its just a game.
