I agree with this because every time you play a violent video game, you change. You keep talking about and don't stop. At school your education grades will fall because you keep wanting to play it and don't bother paying attention. The graphics are so real that it seems you are there and holding the remote like a real gun. Also you get points when you kill a person on COD and then you might want to get real life points. You get so much into the game that you want to play it so much to you will do anything to try and shoot a real gun.
•A 13-year old boy jumped from the building’s 24th floor and committed suicide after playing Warcraft III for 36 hours straight.
•A teenager went on a rampage and killed three men, two of them police officers, after months of playing Grand Theft Auto.
•A 17-year-old male killed his mother and wounded his father after they took Halo 3 away from him.
•A 15-year old ran away from home after his parents took his Xbox console away. His dead body was found almost a month after.
•Two kids murdered 13 and wounded 23 before turning the gun on themselves acting out their own version Doom.
Kids go crazy when they lose especially when you need to kill someone, so if you die on games like Black Ops kids say DIE DIE DIE! Other games that are not violent, kids do not say DIE. They think like humans and think problems through. Smart kids don't play violent video games.
While people are playing video games, you're putting them in a violent and brutal environment. If you take video game statistics and put them into real life, it's pretty scary.
• The lastest Black Ops game has had over 916 million hours played which is a little more than 104,000 years
• 83,000 people die every minute in the game which means in six days, there would be no one left in the world.
• There has been over 106 billion deaths in Black Ops 2 that’s equivlent to 98% of humans that have ever exsisted.
• In the comparison that the United States pays 300 million dollars a day in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, one hour of play on Black Ops 2 costs 1,362,086,600 dollars.
• The Us Army uses 1.5 billion rounds every year and Black Ops 2 uses 1.5 billion rounds in 17 hours.
While people are playing video games they are not thinking about the damage they are causing, and their behavior totally changes. People defend violent video games and identify them as "stress relievers". They are not stress relievers at all. If people are so into the game they are playing, they will feel like it is real life. I have seen my cousins played violent video games and if they ever lost they freaked out. They also think of the main characters as role models and want to be just like them. And its's pethetic
Do people not even watch the news?!?!?!? I mean come on look at the suspect who killed all of those little kids at Sandy Hook Elementary!!! That suspect might even of played violent games!! I have a little brother and before he started playing violent video games he was the sweetest brother.. But now that he has played those types of games.. He has begun to slap people in the face, kick them, and many other things. He is only 11 years old and he is playing 17 and older games!!!! YOU CANNOT TELL ME THAT VIOLENT GAMES DO NOT CAUSE BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS!!!!! TRY ME!!!!
Here are some examples

Yes, school shootings are most likely from video games, it has been proven that the people who open fire are gamers or are addicted to playing violent games. It fuels their minds and urges or gives them the idea telling the mind that it is okay to do things like that. If you have all that exposure to computerized violence and they go on rampages thinking "If I see this on TV, it's okay for ME to do as a person". It is exactly how that mind works.
One of my clients played a Game called Driver 3. This caused her to become more violent to her family. Ditching school and going out smoking were also behaviors that started after playing this game. I do think games can cause a difference in a child's behavior, and I think there needs to be some regulations put in place.
Are the murders of innocent committed because some kids play games? Teenagers should not be permitted to buy violent video games due to the fact that it corrupts their minds and causes them to act out in negative ways. Many depressing incidents have happened in the past, and to stop them from happening in the future, we must take action.
Teenagers spend their free time playing violent video games. Research shows that boys play 13 hours of them a week and girls tend to play 5. Even if we may not realize it, it is detrimental to their minds and society. Since they were little, kids have been exposed to aggressive behavior in the games that they play. When this sadistic image of life is placed in their minds over and over again, it desensitizes them.
When these kids become teenagers, they are not sensitive to the world around them. Their minds are corrupted by the rubbish that they used to occupy themselves in when they were younger. In the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting, about two dozen innocent children were mercilessly murdered by a young man in his twenties. Why? Because the shooter’s mind had been corrupted so much that his psychology had been negatively affected.
We should put an end to this damaging behavior. By letting our children play violent video games, we are destroying their minds. We should protect them, and protect our society. By banning the sale of aggressive games, we are helping our world.
Video games do have a huge effect on many unsuspecting kids. The power a character possesses makes him super strong and he starts killing people. The poor little kid will envy his power and try to be like him/her. Therefore, the little kid ending up killing someone or hurting someone badly.
I am 18 I have been playing call of duty for 10 years and I am in the honor roll in my school. I have won 3 spelling bees and have been MVP on my soccer team for 2 months straight. I have friends, no enemies, and I am not a violent person. Never have been, never will be.
I play violent video games all the time so do my friends and we don't go around shooting people! If you think violent video games cause violent crimes then you are more stupid than you may have thought. Just because a person plays violent video games doesn't make them a psychopath. If a person wants to murder someone then they will!
Violent video games do NOT cause behaviour problems. You don't need to conduct a scientific study to figure that out, because the answer is as plain as the sun in the sky. If violent video games DID cause behaviour problems, then we'd have a world filled with uncontrollable criminals running amok, destroying property and causing harm to people. Since we have not descended into anarchy as a result of the existence of violent video games, the answer is clearly NO.
I have been playing Grand Theft Auto since San Andreas was released and I haven't killed anyone! I'm not thinking about killing anyone either! Shooting someone in a video game will not make you want to shoot someone in real life. If that logic worked, then would that mean that if I played an NFL video game, I would become a professional NFL player?
If video games have a impact on our behavior, then do singing games make us better singers? Why doesn't Mario make us eat mushrooms and destroy blocks to make magic coins appear and shoot fire from our hands? Do cooking games make our cooking better? My result - video games have a small chance of making you violent.
Being a 16 year old boy, I have heard these issues multiple times, whether they be on the news or this website. I have been playing violent games,including GTA, since I was 5 and admittedly got into fights when I was younger (grades 3-5) but I have no criminal record and am honestly the biggest wimp I know, sadly, and would not hurt anyone so when I read these I find it hard to believe that violent video games in particular cause violence.
Videos games are pretty much stress releivers to the world. Anything thats wrong with someone, namely violence, Is the PARENTS fault not video games Parents who complain about their kids being violent probably aren't very good parents looking for an easy excuse like the video games they bought for their kids.
People think violent video games affect their children, but did they discipline their child correctly? Did they show little or no love to their children? Did they teach their children what is right and what is wrong? If you taught your child correctly, then there won't be these problems. Thank you.
Games are rated depending on their content. If an underage kid gets a hold of a M for Mature game, its on whoever gave it to them, and in turn any influence that comes from it is theirs to deal with. Even so, children and teens can discern fiction from reality; it's a basic concept. If any violent behavior came about from an individual, a virtual reality would not be the cause of it. Outside influences and mental state have far bigger influences on what a person chooses to do. People aren't so stupid to go out killing because they saw it in a game. Either they were raised to think that is acceptable(being the parents' fault) or their life was already hellish enough to act on impulse. Blaming it on games is just an excuse.
I have played video games for over 10 years. I am 14 and just got my first Call of Duty game when I was 12. I am still the same shy person who has never caused harm to others. What proof do you have that it causes violence in children?
