Lol, I think the only times I AM violent is WHILE I'm playing videogames, so in a way, videogames let me vent out my otherwise pent-up anger and frustration, preventing me from going into my workplace and killing everyone there. By the way, if you hear me shout "HOW ABOUT THIS THREE-METRE RULE, B****!!" While I'm decimating another character, I'm totally referring to my choce of long-ranged weapon, and in no way referring to the three-metre rule of my beloved world-dominating, soul-sucking employer, which for copyright reasons, I shall refer to as "War-Mart".

........... :3


3-metre rule?

+1 for the avatar


I guess in the U.S. it would be three feet? Here if we're within 3 metres of a customer, we must smile warmly, greet them, and ask if we may help. Also, we are not allowed to utter cuss-words about them after they totally ignore us/ ream us out for no reason. It's like they don't think we're people ;_;

...I Don't hate -people-, I just hate customers.


Oh, haha, I don't remember ever being told about that specific, distance based rule... but yeah... sometimes I want to choke customers for acting like dickheads

My answer is not at all, basically if the person is gonna do something there gonna do it regardless of what they see from a game or movie. They just use that as an excuse to make people believe that was the only reason they did it so they can have something to blame there stupidity on. People were just as violent back in the olden days when there was no games or tv so what was there excuse then. Its all just excuses and blame on something that is just entertaining. Games don't make the person, actions do.

of course video games are the reason people are violent just look at the dark ages there were video games everywhere and lets not forget world war two all those people would never had died if it weren't for video games and then there is the terrorist groups like the taliban if it weren't for pong the trade centers would still be there.

its obvious that video games are to blame. its not like violence has been ingrained in human nature since the beginning.

not really. it depends who it effects. i think its only likely to create violent children.
its kind of sad seeing my cousins under 10 play nothing BUT mature games. they tend to have anger habits

My personal opinion is that, yes, video games can have an effect on the mental balance of people and they can cause anger and even violent reactions in some people. (A friend of mine who is generally pretty docile punched a hole in his monitor playing Call of Duty).

Where problems arise is in situations where a person who is not mentally stable such as the guy who shot up Virginia Tech and the shooters at Columbine get ahold of overly violent games. Their parents clearly bought them these games, and what I wonder is why would a parent who knows their child has anger problems or isn't mentally sound give that child an extremely violent video game.

A couple years ago I was in a Toys-R-Us buying a present for my little cousin for her birthday. I walked though the electronics section while looking around and ran across what looked like a 6 or 7 year old boy and his mother. The boy picked up a copy of Grand Theft Auto 3, handed it to his mother and said "This is the one" and she said "Okay" and started to walk off. I was so pissed off by this that I actually spoke up and asked her if she was actually going to buy that for her son. She said "Yes, it's a video game he wants." I then proceeded to explain to her what that game was actually like and about and she just stood there stunned, then turned around and put it back on the shelf and scolded her son for wanting such a game.

The fact of the matter is that parents are not paying attention to these things or they just don't care, and that's the problem. We should be looking at educating people about these rating systems and what games are about rather than blaming the gaming companies. Someone like myself at 18 with a stable mind in my opinion is perfectly fine to play a game like Grand Theft Auto, but you shouldn't put something like that in the hands of a 7 year old or a person who has been diagnosed with anger or violence issues.

Sure. Video games are plenty influential. Google it. Media influences the way we think and feel and the choices we make.

No. People are using it for a scapegoat just to get a lighter sentence in their crime(s). I feel bad for the game companies who suffer lawsuits because people are so stupid. If they don't blame video games, they'll blame t.v. or magazines or internet. but people never blame themselves.

We can't blame video game companies if some of their costumers inherited some abnormal "violent" genes from their predecessors.

I won't say it's impossible but for the largest part of the issue I definitely do NOT think that's why people are violent. Frankly since the beginning of any society things will change negatively and people will seek out a reason for it. Unfortunately for the last few generations it's been things like Rock 'n roll music, Comic books and Vidja games. Then again stuff like video games probably influences people with low grips on reality but then again people like that should probably have a chaperone or a crash helmet

i suggest that it has a partial influence since it gives us a taste of the action and usually in video games after the violence something good happens to the person who cause the violence like they get the money they stole etc. so it does give the influence that there may be a prize after the violence
