  • They can, yes

    I saw a kid on a plane not long ago pulling out his tablet to boot up Grand Theft Auto : Vice City on it. Kid was ten years old, maybe. In cases like that, yes, video games desensitize kids to violence. It's because of awful parents like the one sitting next to that kid, he's not supposed to have his hands on that game. But, if you take blame out of it, the answer ultimately is yes, they are capable.

  • It CAN do so...

    HOWEVER, a violent video game will not drastically impact a child's behaviour. It can (imo) serve as a catalyst for violent kids BUT it can serve as an outlet for violence. Ultimately, it can, but the main factors in making a kid violent are other factors -- violent video games have very little impact for typical kids.

  • No, Absolutely not

    There have been multiple scientific studies that say video games dont make ANYONE violent, much less kids, it has been proven that they make people more aggressive and triggered more easily, but not make people more violent, like, someone is not gonna murder 50 people because they saw it in a video game

  • No it does not...

    Video games does not make children violent. It depends on the age of the child- a six year old who plays call of duty will clearly get the wrong impression, but same goes to the other side if an eighteen year old plays it they will understand the differences between reality and the game. Video games also make the illusion that you can restart your live when you die and that it is OK to kill anyone in your way.
    No-violent video games can also make you violent. Like when you get frustrated with flappy bird and broke your phone.
    It all depends on your mood, age, and how you react to the game, and parent guidance.

  • It's not the video games, it's the parenting.

    Violent video games do not just uncontrollably teach kids to be more violent. It's up to the parents to teach their children what's right and what's wrong. I hate to be critical but the kids who committed these mass shootings had lazy parent's who allowed them to play what ever video game they wanted however long they wanted without watching out for cyber addiction or giving moral advice.

  • Ah hell nah!

    Now I don't know about you but whenever I watch a film or play a game I certainly want to go into an uncontrollable rage and murder everyone. Exactly! I don't and that's what lobbyists don't understand because they are all retarded and look for scapegoats. Because the like the violent TV Programs they don't complain but because video games are recently new.

  • No, they know they are pretend.

    No, video games do not make kids more violent, because children know that video games aren't real. Children know that video games are just that, games. Children know not to model the behavior that they see in the games. Children are able to separate reality from fiction, and they snap back to the real world when they put the games down.

  • True or false

    My children and I both play violent video games and I'm not violent and they are not violent. Playing cowboys and Indians can be violent according to what you think is violent. People need to start seeing the real reasons for the violence in the child's home environment. Right. Yes

  • Video games, Violent or Therapeutic?

    Video games have been on blast for the past 2 decades as they have been know to be violent and Aggression but, Violent video games have been actually known to be effective in Catharsis as the game is being used to release all that anger unto the game. Overall video games have been misunderstood for their violence and must be looked at for decreasing crimes, anger, and shootings.

  • No they dont

    No because all the video games are for is fun the game doesn’t tell you to go out and kill someone or to go rob a person video games are made for you to sit down and have fun and relax without having to worry about other people bothering you

  • Not at all.

    The problem is not the game, it is the kid. Studies show that this may be a contributor to other things like bad home life, bad life I general, bullied, violence, and other things. Not only do they NOT make kids violent, it makes them more peaceful. They can be an outlet for violence by letting kids kill computers than living things.
