Violence and Video Games: Scapegoatism

On SRN, contributor Krysti Pryde takes a look at our culture of violence and video games and the scapegoatism that takes place after any tragic shooting. Are games and gamers being unfairly targeted by the media? The article looks at this and other issues. (Culture, Industry, Tag Invalid)

Stop blaming games and guns. The human race has always had violence in it and the worst mass murder in a school involved no guns.

These mass murderers are loners EVERY TIME. Our society needs to learn to deal with these people, and be proactive. These people don't go to "anti-bullying" and other support groups; they must be approached.

It seems like before video games were the scapegoat, it was the Matrix and Hollywood action movies and prior to that, it was Rock'n Roll.
