Though violent video game to not cause violent behaviour they do make ... Even if it is just a character in a game it become as easy as pie to pull that trigger


You must understand that as human beings we have the ability to easily distinguish our own reality from a simulation. We know when we are dreaming, we know when we are hypothesising. Video games serve as a 'second reality' and that is the exact reason that people choose to play them. They are well aware of the fact that decisions they make within the game are ones that are so far from anything they could do in reality.

To suggest that it becomes easier for a child to operate a gun in real life after pressing a button on a keypad to achieve a reaction within a computer simulation is not at all logical.
