Its a harsh world out there. If you are selected to compete in the hunger games, violent games will help you have years of practice and skill. Maybe with help from these games, such as Call of Duty, you will the victor of the Games and bring glory to your district.
In today's world of reality, if our kids are taught at an early age how to be good killers and how to learn the art of camouflage, hiding, predatory behavior and other skills in being a good killer, then their Government will be more inclined to select them to be in the Army, Police Force or Riot Squad, as they need killers who are prepared to kill their own citizens without questioning their Government.
If our children are desensitized without any thoughts of, care, love, compassion, sympathy or empathy, they will very quickly up the ranks in Military, Secret Services, Navy Seals, Riot Police and any other Government Forces needed to shut people up, make them pay severely for protesting and adding to the misdirection of world agendas our governments use as a decoy to confuse and deceive the public.
Governments NEED good killers to do their dirty work, to hold back the people who protest and complain about their corruptions and selfish, greedy desires, no better way then to start training kids using Violent Video Games, what a perfect carriage and method, and the best part is "It costs the Government NOTHING $0" LMAO the parents are paying for these little sheeple kids to learn how to become the perfect candidates in the future.
So when you see Riot Police, killing their own citizens, Military Raping Children in other countries and killing woman and children, be Proud of yourselves parents, because YOU HAD A PART IN THEIR TRAINING!
Yes, Playing Violent Video Games will definitely allow our kids, to be escalated up the ranks and thus given higher salary wages or ( Hush Money, Thank You Dollar$ ) from their Government.
To those who think this is not already happening, switch of your Tel Lie Visions and do not be mislead by the mainstream media and start searching on YouTube or Facebook for the real truth about what is happening in OUR WORLD.
Playing violent video games makes kids happy and gives them ways to take out their anger on a computer character instead of a real, physical person. It also gives them an imaginary world that revolves around them which, makes kids feel happy, especially if they get sucked into the game which usually will happen. They can view life from a different perspective as well.
Unlike most people in this forum, I was not allowed to play violent games as a kid. Pokemon, Mario, Kirby, and Star Wars weren't considered violent in my family, so we were allowed to play those. When I was around 12, I played DOOM for the first time, and realized that those types of games aren't harmful. My 7 year old cousin has played Battlefield and Call of Duty, and he is completely normal (well, he's super energetic, but that's good). There is nothing harmful in the games, unless they have sex scenes or something. On the label where it would say M, lots of games say "Drug Use". Usually that only means smoking, and it could be worse. I don't support smoking, but that's a whole other conversation. Overall, yes. Children should be allowed to play whatever games they want, as lone as they're not playing Call of Duty or Halo when they're six.
Each child learns and copies differently. Violent games are also a good stress reliever as I myself have found on occasion. I am not saying that they are not violent, and I am not saying that every kid should be allowed to play them, shooting fake people is fun, I will admit that, but if you play violent games to often it will reduce the child's view of how violent it is, but if the parents control the amount played correctly, there should not be a problem.
Video games that are violent helps the kids learn what not to do in the real world. Don't get me wrong, it can make an impact on people's lives but they can be helpful also because the kids could learn from the games instead of taking the bad out of it they can think good.
People think that M games are not for kids are mistaken. Studies show that only 14% of kids who play M games become violent and only 6% of kids show decreased grades from playing these games. In fact 48% of kids who play M games have shown calmer and happier lifestyles.
I completely agree with Firewolfman. I grew up on video games when i was younger. Doom, unreal tournament, mario, GTA, sonic, Zelda, Pokemon, wolfenstien. These influences did not make me overly violent, however since i wasn't restricted from them i honestly didn't play them as much as my friends who were. I have grown up to be a peace believe, loving everybody, flower loving lady who wishes she was born when John Lennon was still alive. I see far more violence on the News and that is splashed in childrens faces as well. Video games are just that games and that is what should be taught to children. This is just a game a bit of fun, sure if you are a parent and if you think it is to violent it is fine to say i don't think she should play that until you are a bit older but explain why and instead of just banning it have a conversation. What is banned or forbidden will be more interesting.
And i mean come on if video games have that much of an effect on us we would all be running around to techno music and taking pills like pac-man.... WAIT A MINUTE.
But in all seriousness, there is violence all around your children. Talk to them get their opinion on it, maybe even play a game with them? Ask them why they like it so much?
Each individual learns differently and matures at a quicker rate. As a child, I was allowed to play violent video games because my parents understood that I wouldn't attempt to copy what I saw. I think the parent should be responsible for limiting what their child watches depending on the individual child and their behaviour.
I agree with Drexel. It makes children have fun whenever they want to, or maybe it is new to them. Not all children get violent with violent video or computer games but some of them do. It's just a game as people say. You don't have to play the game, only if your friend at school says so. Video games affect the way children develop and see the entire world. It depends how bad the game is, but to my opinion, I don't think parents should take away age-appropriate games or the games CHILDREN want to play.
Violent video games such as Halo and Call of Duty make children have more violent tendencies, such as my brother. Ever since he started playing Minecraft Survival, he has been more likely to bully his younger sister and would-be girlfriend. It has destroyed many relationships. Not good. Not good at all.
No because they get violent, also. Then the parents can't control them anymore. Therefore, children should not be able to play violent video games. For all of the people who said yes,if you have kids and can't control them, that is why, because you let them play too many violent video games.
Children are still learning. Their brains pick up what they see and hear. I remember as a little kid I would talk about sports or something. Now, I see kids talking about chopping heads off or "I'll kill you". At this rate, war will never stop; people are too violent. The games are so realistic that people take them seriously. Kids are getting lazy not going outside. If they do go outside, they play at shooting or something violent. In real life, when you hurt or kill someone, you can't go back. If you get shot you can't restart. Life is not a game so people should not play violent games.
Children's minds aren't fully developed when they learn that killing people gets you power and attention. Children think its really funny when they get a head shot and get extra points. They don't realize how truly precious a human life is. We`re telling them life doesn't matter, and we`re okay with it. We tell them if somebody dies in real life to be sad, and then we turn around and say, " good job you took 50 more lives " that's bad parenting. Parents who let their children play violent video games are the biggest hypocrites of all.
These violent video games are influencing kinds to be more violent because they play a game with a goal of killing and hurting things/people. In a matter of fact, the shooter of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting played violent video games as a kid. Those games inspired him to kill innocent children and teachers.
Games make kids grow up too fast, games are costly, they expose kids to things they might not be ready to deal with. Kids might hurt themselves or someone else by mimicking what they see, it may increase aggression, negatively affects the future, exposes them to do bad things or deeds and kids might mimic other characters who are sometimes bad, or do non-human things (Spiderman can climb walls, but normal humans cannot).
I know little kids like who play Call of Duty!! That is ridiculous for someone that age to be playing games like that because they are so impressionable, they will copy everything in the game. If you're 13-15 years or older that is better because they know what's right and wrong. The parents need to be watching their kids' games and what they play all day long.
People get games for there kids like call of dudy and halo knowing there kids will shoot people for fun it is mest up it is like saying hi son grow up as a murderer. They will learn to fight people or shoot them so thats what they try\want to do.
Of course children should not play violent video games! I don't believe parents should allow this, as children should not be subjected to violence at such a young age. There is enough violence in this world, and children should not be taught that violence is fun or okay, which is what video games promote.
Children are still developing and playing violent video games can affect the way they develop and see the world. Watching violence will desensitive them to it. They will have a harder time realizing how wrong and cruel real violence is. Additionally, they deserve to have a period of innocence in their lives before they are exposed to all of that.
