violent games keep me from being violent in real life. If I can take all my anger and rage out on some poor digital prick and not get in trouble. Thats better then murdering the people I've wanted to, but didn't cause cops already don't like me.

Violent games do not encourge the players to be violent.
Bad parenting does.

No, those people that do crazy things because of games are just retarded and have mental problems, there are millions of gamers and those cases are extremely low.

NO that's not true, by their actions and if they get addicted to violence.

I don't think it's true.
I think it's because of their life experiences that made them turn violent.

There was this research in which 2 groups of people were observed, one played violent games and the other didn't, pretty simple.
But the conclusion was that playing violent games made people more relaxed and calm, etc. because gaming is an emotional outlet.
The reason why some people tend to belive this is because the extreme cases I think were people think the game is real, like with this guy who played Man Hunt and was totally obsessed by it and then one night he invited his friend to come to a park and then he brutally killed him...

"Are violent games one of the reason why people are violent?"

Definitely not. People get violent because they either have social, mental or personal problems and any violent person who says they became violent because of video games are simply looking for a scapegoat. Same with some politicians, they tend to blame violent events on video games rather than actual causes.

Not necessarily. For instance we get angry from playing video games if we can't beat a certain level -_- ... But like politicians are retards and are blaming everything on video games. Video games are like music and movies, art. It has a rating system for a reason. If that kid isn't 17 then he's not allowed to play that video game. It's usually just the parent's fault for letting their child play the game. BUT many people like my have been playing games like Grand Theft Auto since we were small and we grew up fine. Guess it varies onthe person that plays the game.

Anyone who blames video games for their children acting badly are just down right stupid.

And on a random note...I just got the 3 red rings of Death of my 360 and now I am sad D: Dont know what to do

I wouldn't say it causes people to act more violent, but I'm pretty confident that it desensitizes them in terms of how they perceive it.
