I'm sick of hearing ignorant people and the media blaming the video games for the violence in the world. Seriously, just because I like playing GTA that doesn't mean I like to steal cars and commit random acts of violence. Just because i like FPS games that doesn't mean I'll start shooting everyone in sight in schools or malls :no:

I agree. I'd never do anything violent unless it was self-defense.

The violent videogames decrease my anger, and violent ideas, WITHOUT harming a living creature. If someone makes me mad, I play COD, or GTA, or MK. Boom Stress relieved.

Amazing stamp, I hate it when news agencies, "researchers" etc. try to turn everything that's fun into a scapegoat. Especially blaming games for causing school shootings is pure mass-cooptation shit!

Honestly, I get sick and tired of the media deciding that FPS games are evil and improve your shooting skills.

Give a Call of Duty fanboy a gun and see if he even can even figure out how to switch the safety off.

I can never EVER understand this logic. Ok, I'll admit that playing violent video games over and over might make you a little desensitised to violence, but at the end of the day, there's a huge fucking difference between going out and killing someone, and pressing a button.

strongly agree, i'm a quiet, nice and honest person, and i play violent video games( Halo, Call of Duty, The Darkness 2, etc.), my parents also blame video games about kids being violent, but i convinced them about it's not the game that makes kids or people in general violent, it's the person them self if they have anger issues or something...but yeah, i love playing violent video games because i can get to do whatever i want that i can't do in real life, which i would never do

I find it laughable when people try to blame a FPS for mass shootings. Using a thumb stick to control a gun which is essentially weightless and fires bullets which are not affected by wind or distance is a lot different than firing a real gun, where actually physics are involved. Sure, in Call of Duty I can use a Colt 1911 to take out a Nazi at 500 yards, but in real life, I'd be lucky to take out said Nazi from 50 feet using a real Colt 1911.

Good point. If you really want to be a good shot, you need to get practice shooting the real thing.

I've fired BBs at stationary targets, and it takes me at least 10 seconds to aim the gun, and I can only hit about half the targets, if I'm lucky. I shake so much, that I can have the target dead center and still miss.

I also recently tried a "shooting simulator" where I fired a light gun at a display projected on the wall. The targets were orange clay discs, two of them were fired at once in opposite directions. You got two shots, one for each disc. I only hit both discs in one instance. Most of the time, I focused on one clay disc and stuck with it. Out of 50 clay targets, I only hit 16. That's 32%, pitifully inadequate. Because of this, I never want a gun.

Also, people need to learn to take responsibility for their actions, and you're not helping them do that by blaming video games instead of blaming the person who pulled the trigger.

If you enjoy Halo and Call Of Duty, but not Grand Theft Auto, it means you have a good moral compass.

If it's not video games it's movies. If it's not movies it's comic books. If it's not comic books it's penny shows. It's only a matter of time before Dennis the Menace is blamed for societies woes.
