      Amazing ... every word of what you just said ... was wrong! (yes, a quote) I'm 62, and I play video games for the problem solving, puzzles, learning to mod (150 on SSE), inter-activeness, logic, brain stimuli, etc.... The problem is that, your talking about undeveloped minds of children. Everything they do or experience is absorbed and molds them into what they've been exposed to and what they will become. Overexposure to violence (and immoral decisions) in a video game is no different than growing up on the wrong side of the tracks where they are exposed to the bad side of society. I've seen the difference in the generations. Is it the only cause? ... absolutely not ... it is a contributing factor. Only a silver-spooner who's never struggled to survive could come up with this crap. There's a huge difference between a grown-up and and easily influenced child, and yes the parents have lost the ability raise their kids and leave it to the teachers or others. So .... every word of what you just said .....

            Here's an undeniable fact: before video games, humanity never dealt with violence or hyper active children. There was no such thing as addiction, and there were no gun crimes.

                  I really love how in an effort to show that games are bad, they inadvertently got people to prove that games are healthier to do than other frequently accepted pastimes.

                    Every time I tell my mom I have ANY kind of problem she says it’s video games?

                    „Oh? You broke your arm? No wonder you are just sitting inside of your video games!“
                    FFS NO! It’s because I went outside, acted dumb, and fell from a garage roof!

                      Oh, giving a 6y/o an R rated video game has negative effects on the kid?!
                      You don’t say!

                      The problem aren’t videogames, but crappy parenting.

                        Vitamin D defficiency in Newcastle, UK does not surprise me. It's always dark, cold and damp there and people spend all their time indoors AT THE PUB. I'm from there BTW.

                          I remember when in school, we used to beat each other up playing star wars in the yard. So uh, does star wars make people violent? :'D

                                On a more important note. As for number 1, how did the boy get a gun in the first place? It must've happened in 3rd world countries with constant warfare... or America. The odds of a boy playing Minecraft is much slimmer in the 3rd world countries, so the chances that it happened in the States :)

                                      And tbh you could keep arguing against these accusations, they just fall flat on many levels is pitiful to see how much people believe this sort of "logic".

He was inspired by that

                                                  The only reason gamers get pissed sometimes is because of having adrenaline in their body which is why they have such reactions

                                                    I've been playing violent video games for nearly 30 years. I hit puberty right around the time Mortal Kombat hit arcades and pizza places(back when those were still popular and not novelties like they are today.) Not once in all those decades did I once ever want to go out and commit violent acts. In fact, I am almost entirely pacifist. Video game violence and real life violence are two entirely disparate concepts. There is a fairly solid line between fantasy and reality. And people who act on impulse from video games have something already wrong with them long before the games were added to the calculus...

Not to mention any scientific studies they do report... are usually reported incorrectly. One of my favorite pass-times is to hunt down the study (because they also rarely properly cite their sources), read it, and see how they botched it.

                                                                                          I think we can all agree there are absolutely some people who are very badly influenced, violently even, by video games. No one is denying that’s not true. There are also people who are violently influenced by books, movies, the news, whatever! And that especially goes for mentally ill or naturally aggressive people. It’s this blanket effect, the idea that they *definitely* or *are very likely* make you violent that we hate.

                                                                                          I’ll use a real example. My older brother is one of the types of people who can be very negatively affected by video games. They’ve made him aggressive, moody, and worsen his mood which is BAD because he uses them to try to fix his mood. He’s locked himself away and been extremely rude and really difficult to deal with over them. It’s gotten bad. He’s broken things and when he’s not keeping himself in check, it’s made me extremely concerned for his mental health. He’s an adult, 32. This has been an issue since he was a kid. There’s a reason my parents were very worried and careful when I started showing a high interest in them at a young age. But through proper parenting, moderation, and being able to use common sense to tell reality from video games, I and most others have turned out just fine.

                                                                                          It’s a matter of
                                                                                          A. Parenting. Don’t give 8 year old Timmy Bloodbourne, or T or M rated games. Be logical. What can Timmy handle? Just because I could handle Oblivion and Battlefield at age 10 doesn’t mean John down the the street can. Know your child damnit.
                                                                                          B. Moderation. Don’t obsess and lose control. Video games are more addicting than ever and you cannot let them control your life or your wallet. You’ll just spiral and get trapped.
                                                                                          C. Research. Both scientific to disprove misconceptions, and research for yourself. In my family, the Diablo series and games like it have proven repeatedly to be very addicting and tend to make us aggressive. It’s how we’re wired. So... we don’t play them! We don’t have them in our house! It’s simple! Don’t allow yourself to become addicted, know what hooks you, what makes you a bad person.

                                                                                          This was long, but I feel like I’m so sick of people blanketing every group. X group is A, H group is K, all of W are D. It’s so lazy and pathetic. This especially. The media has been so terrible about it and stirred up a constant panic.
