They send a mixed message. Everywhere we hear, "Violence is bad, end war, etc." but then we glorify it in video games.
I don't believe that any kid goes out and shoots up a school "because of" video games, but I think they have an overall impact on society that it negative.
Are video games too violent?
explain your opinion
- The ones rated M and above are, if they are not violent then they encourage strong sexual content. Majority of all big name games such as Gears of War, Halo 3, GTA IV etc. encourage a lot of violence and gore. Although games like madden are not that violent most of the games that sell a lot now a days are.00
- No,because it's the parents fault for letting the kids buy it.00
- Too violent? How would that be determined? What is the violence cutoff? I think you need to refine your question. I haven't never seen violence in video games that I won't see in a movie or TV show. Just as movies and TV are rated, video games are rated as well. It's up to retailers and parents to enforce the ratings. If you wouldn't let your kid watch Kill Bill, you shouldn't buy them Grand Theft Auto.
Personally, I've played violent video games from a young age and I'm not a violent person at all. I like fighting games, but I haven't even been in a real fight in 12 years.00
- I'm having serious thoughts about not wanting to be friends with my close buddy. is this a red flag that i need to address?
- 15 (girl) and I look 12. HELP! I can’t stand it I look like a baby and feel all alone. I’ve tried to look more mature, but it fails!?
- Why do some people walk with their arms crossed in public and not give eye contact. is this a sign of insecurity or feeling down?
- Does the Israeli Secret Intelligence Agency recruit in the U.S.?
- Im conservative but I dont like Trump. I believe he's unrealistic and ilogical. He also doesnt offer any solution to white minority?

- Pros and cons of making women dress covered up from head to toe like they do in many Middle Eastern countries?
- Why is the left obsessed with making everything the same?
- Why are NO cars (really anything of real value) built in Africa, over 1 billion there and more natural resources that most every else?
- Why is it the older we get the more impatient we get?
