  • Video Games cause violence

    Some video games cause violence, but not all. Games like Grand Theft Auto have been notoriously known to encourage kids and some adults to commit crimes of that nature. For example, in the game, you can run over civilians and kill innocent, people, which in itself should be banned and not allowed. Adults and people are the only ones that can play the game. Even then it should be limited to only sane adults.

  • Obviously not mate

    Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit Oi mate i will smash you innit lol

  • It triggers the violent nature within us, but that doesn't mean its a major factor in whether a person is violent or not.

    To say that the violence in our movie and video games has no bearing on violent crime would be silly- we're largely influenced by the media and pop culture, and we tend to copy it a lot, so it definitely plays some factor. In the end, however, considering that everybody will have played videos games nowadays, its a poor argument that they directly cause violence, since the majority of people will not end up becoming violent criminals. Lastly, I'm pretty sure that in places with the highest crime rates, there isn't such a widespread of video games, people have more important things going on there than leisure.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Just an example: Hatred is an upcoming shooter video game developed by Destructive Creations and scheduled for release in 2015 on Microsoft Windows. The player-character is a mass-killing villain who hates humanity and begins a "genocide crusade" to kill innocent civilians and police officers. So, YES! Video games do cause lots of Violence.

  • Video Games cause violence

    Video Games do have violent art, music, dialog words, and story. The amount of shooting has risen a lot since shooting video games have come out. Plus video games have gotten better graphics and sound to make it feel more like real life. The games pretty much teach you that killing and robbing are good. In Call of Duty you get better killing weapons if you kill a certain amount of people without dying so it's like a reward for killing.

  • Do video games make me a murderer

    People are saying that video games turn people into murderers or killers if that is the case will I become a doctor if a play a game about a surgeon or become a football player if i play Madden or be a pro racer if i play Forza the answer is no

  • Someone who is anti video game.

    "Oh no. Another shooting. Why could this kid possibly do it? Oh. He played violent video games. Then that's obviously the reason. It couldn't possibly be because he was constantly bullied every day, or that his teachers never helped him out with that issue, or that his parents gave him a collection of guns for his birthday then took them away only to get them back and shoot them and the school and himself. It's call of duty." Ok. Maybe it isn't like that, but it's still annoying when someone always blames video games and ignores any other possibilities.

  • Video game are not correlated to crime rates

    According to studies found in book such as grand theft childhood, playing video games do not cause violence. Violence is usually caused by other outside factors, and playing video helps to relieve aggression in a manner that is safe. For those who have mental illnesses, they may not be able to discern between video game violence and the real world

  • You have to be 17 years older to play a mature rated game.

    If your parents/gardians don't want you playing the game they can say no. Some sellers of video games do not even sell mature rated games to kids under the age. Most shootings that teenagers have done were from mental problems so I do not agree with this. Ha ha ha.

  • They certainly do not cause instability's in the child's mind.

    You see, people who kill a lot of people kind of are already a little disturbed. Games may teach violence. That the violence rewards you. But I think it's the parents fault for not saying otherwise. Need more discipline in the youth today. The thing is people done gone soft.

  • No - it's just pounced on by the media.

    Video games have never been proven to be a main cause of violence. In a study of people with violent histories, it's been proven that most people who resort to violence were influenced by books and songs - not video games.

    It's almost certain that a killer plays videos games, and therefore the media always includes something along the lines of, "...The shooter played games like GTA....". However, almost everyone has played videogames. Why don't we just say that drinking water is a cause of violence as well? What about going to school?
    "Hey! This killer has drank water before. Wait, this one too! Oh, this guy as well! Water must be a cause of violence! REPORT THIS TO THE MEDIA!"

  • No they don't

    Honestly, if you have been playing a video game that is violent, and you go shoot up a school, you're already unstable if you do that. Now if someone is playing a game like GTA V, then you should already be mature enough to handle it. Now yes I do admit some of it is a bit excessive but still.

  • People who are brought to violence by video games would be brought to violence by any other medium.

    Art contains violence. Music contains violence. Movies contain violence. And thus, games contain violence. Someone who is brought to violence through games should not have been interacting with any violent medium beforehand, and games simply follow the same rules with nothing special about them. Hence, most of these art forms contain ratings so that young children who would be impacted by violent mediums are not until they have reached the maturity required for them to understand the separation of fantasy and reality.

  • Video games do not cause violence in any case I have seen.

    Because I said so. I have played many violent games, and I know that I am not a violent person. Most of my family plays violent video games, and they aren't violent people. My class did a project on how video games don't cause violence, or do, and all of the evidence was against video games causing violence.
