Well to Start things off as soon as there's a mass shooting in schools are anywhere they immediately blame violent video games. Well did they really research before they say these claims? Well obviously they didn't because only 2 of 9 mass shooters were actually into violent video games. The reason they started these claims is because of the amount of evidence showing that violent video games causes aggression and they're right. But not by a lot because. According to Catherine Newman, "tons of small children play Silent shooter games that only a small fraction become violent." I have a friend and he is interested in games like Call of Duty and Mortal Combat and he is actually quiet and relaxed, has a good sense of humor and in generally nice.

Robert's got a quick hand
He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan
He's got a rolled cigarette
Hanging out his mouth, he's a cowboy kid
Yeah, he found a six-shooter gun
In his dad's closet, in the box of fun things
I don't even know what
But he's coming for you, yeah, he's coming for you

He be coming home late, and he's coming home late
And he's bringing me a surprise
'Cause dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice

I reason with my cigarette
And say, "Your hair's on fire, you must've lost your wits", yeah

video games in general can be actually good for you in a few ways. Germany discovered that you can use video games as a source of entertainment like that to help cure ADHD by giving them something to do and increase the IQ people with the condition and also help Dyslexia. A study in 2014 discovered that violent video games have actually decreased the amount of real world violence. There is a study showing that playing team games which most video games these days are help people be more cooperative. Also children 10-15 years old play video games and tend to be more happier with life then children who don't play at all.
