Here is my conclusion:

Violent people with bad experience in upbringing, will get violent reactions from games.

Normal people with good experience in upbringing, will get no violent reactions or tendencies from games.

I don't need a study or hundreds of shrinks to know this. It's common sense. So instead of trying to blame game industry, blame the social norm for hurting children at a younger age.

well said bro;-)

people with bad/ or negetive intentions to begin with will do bad things regardless of what form of media they use and watch...

Sigh, when will these people learn. There are broken people all over the world, and while the acts they commit are horrendous, you blame the person. One person out of a sample in the hundreds of millions? Sadly this is a fight that we will never win. People will always find something to blame and in doing so, reduce our freedoms even further in an area of entertainment that we enjoy. Again...sigh.

Violent as in pushing and shoving with a friend or as in magically spawn an rpg and blow up someones house violent? Exactly.

OMG they if people cooperate and work together as a team they might become friends as well. I never knew that.....

So does that mean playing on a 5000 person team in Planetside 2 is going to get me to ally 5000 people to attack my government.

Dangerous stuff. lol

This stuff is getting old.
