  • Yes they are.

    The government and the President should be more concerned with video game control than with gun control. There thousands of kids ages starting as low as 6 which play violent video games. First person shooting, to robbing cars and killing people e.g Grand theft auto. It is very bad for kids of today and it will be even worse for the future, considering how fast the technology is growing and how real these video games are becoming. Makes kids think their real life is a video game.

  • Pure Insanity.

    It is already pretty scary, being a human, that our kids are playing such inhumanely violent video "games". In fact, the fact that they are called games is itself so bizarrely strange, since they are total representations of what not to do. And killing zombies doesn't make it better. It is about time we, as the most civilized species on our planet, make better use of our time, money, and use of technology such as 3D animation software used to make such games. Young kids are taught that violence is atrocity and are expected for their thoughts to remain on that. And now, those same batch of kids are slaughtering simulated humans and experiencing war-time scenes. And stealing cars? Seriously? That's just plain sad. Ok, so now kids are going to do that as well. So I think its about time our children finally stop their daily simulated murders and begin to understand the true beauty of life.

  • Look at the facts.

    In recent years, games have become more and more realistic for gamers. This has proven to be bad because violent games already have the blood and gore but now it looks more realistic than ever. This can cause what is real and what isn't to intertwine and confuse those who don't see the difference. Recent studies from Dr. Mario Vance at Rapture Institute did a study having people play violent games and noticed that aggression levels increased dramatically in 90% of the students that participated.

  • YESS very violent

    Video Games are Certainly Violent. Such as grand theft auto. You rob and kill innocent people. When kids grow up they could end up doing that as well since they play to much violent games. Why should parents buy these good for nothing games. Maybe children would end as an outlaw at a age of 6

  • Videogames are violent

    97% of children started as young as 11, beginning to play Violent Video games,in the US,
    up to $11.7 Billion was calculated all over the region, that money was spent of domestic violent video games.
    Violent video games were blamed for school-shootings, bullying and violence toward women.
    There was a story where a man went to sleep after playing Grand Theft Auto and woke up later, thinking he was in a video game and shot many people, soon being arrested and serving a long time in jail and today. He realized it was no video game until he was sentenced to death.

  • They are just violent.

    I think that the games themselves are violent not the kids playing them. The kids are fine, but the games just affect the kid. People should play less violent games and the world won't have all the violence that comes with it. The kids turn violent when they play these games because they don't get emotional blasting off zombies' heads, but once they are finished they won't show emotion kicking the cat either.

  • They lead to tragedy.

    Guns, troubled young men, and violent video games. Together, they form a tragically familiar background story to America's recent shooting massacres in Columbine, Aurora, and Newtown. Researchers are still trying to sort out what kinds of behaviors can (and can't) be attributed to playing games like "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" and "Killzone 3."

  • Deal with it

    Just do it it it it it it it it it iti ti ti ti ti ti it iti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti tit ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti

  • Nope, stop complaining.

    First of all blame yourself for buying your kid that violent game. They have an age restriction and at gamestop they don't let you buy the game without an adult and they tell the adult what is on the game. Then you made that decision. So quit complaining. So next time don't come complaining to gamers.

  • Your argument is invalid...

    First of all, saying that violent video games are the cause of all violence in today's society is the equivalent of saying, "The sea should be off limits because some people are drowning". That is irrational and plainly pathetic as an argument. Notice as I said SOME in my example because not everyone who plays violent video games has a mindset of pure malevolence. Secondly another example which will affect all parents who oppose these games is this:" Because some men rape women, ergo, all men are rapists" or "Because some women are strongly obsessed with make-up, all women are obsessed with make-up". These claims are clearly false and are over generalizations of the truth. Rather than focus on what the criminal does as a hobby, why not address his or her mental conditions or financial situation? If we are a society of rational people, than why are we debating over the surface of the situation, rather than the root of it?

  • You can't say that video games are too violent.

    There are nerf guns and water guns and while those don't cause harm, think about BB guns those can hurt you. There are also paint ball guns, those can make you go blind or deaf if you get hit. You can't say that there are protective helmets because if you're not playing, you're not wearing one.

  • There's nothing wrong with a little violence.

    It's not the games that make kids violent, it's the way they were raised, their family life situation, and their mental state that can severely and negatively affect them later down the road. If the player shoots and kills a random person in GTA, that does not mean they will replicate it in real life.

  • It is fine

    Video games are not too violent and even if they are they have a rating system so that the violent games wont be sold to minors. Honestly people chill out these games expose people to the terror of war so they understand. Its not like a kid will play halo then go to school guns a' blazin. So just chill out.

  • Gears of War

    No video games are not too violent. They are violent at times but they should not be limited. Me myself and my friends play games like Gears of War and Chivalry which are the most violent games out there and get this there's a option that lets you turn gore off. Games wont make people do stuff its the people that does it.

  • Of course not wacha think

    Video games are video games. I play last of us and COD BO ][ and there's nothing violent about it.Also its cool.But i think its not htat violent.Anyways violence wiil always exist and there will never be a world with no violence. Good and bad will live forever.Violence is part of life.

  • Are you seriously thinking about this?

    Ive played violent games since i was seven. Only the people who are not mature enough to play these things and have a sound mind are those who break. Take a look at the amount of kids who play these games and have a great social life. And now for a quote by some famous guy... "Guns do not kill people, only people who wield the weapon kill people

  • Na never too violent.

    My dad lets me play when ever i want. Talk about destiny for example.I play it all the time its rated T and i'm ten and i'm not scared i bit. I Know someone who's 7 years old and he plays it play it and he's not scared 1 bit.
