Do Video Games Kill?

Games have been portrayed as the cause for the last 20 years. It all began with the popular first person shooter, DOOM, sharing the blame for the Columbine shooting. The Sandy Hook shooting last Christmas was blamed on Mass Effect. Yet, despite all of my research, I have yet to find any other form of media being blamed for mass shootings, whether it be movies, music, or even books. This says only one thing; the mass media has painted a big red target on the video game industry, and will look to undermine it any chance they get.

Yeah before you ban video games, first please go ban guns, then come back and tell me how many people were killed from a video game..

Last time I checked easy access to guns is the real problem, but sure blame video games if that makes it easier to not address the real problem.

No. Incorrect gun laws play more of an important role.

I would say that it is unstable people that kill people, not guns, not games. killing is against the law.. has been before games and yet murders occurred. People need to be able to access medical attention and psych evaluations before they are allowed to kill. also, it all comes down to parenting... games with killing are rated M for 17+... if you think that it causes them to be murderers then why do you keep buying them for them?

its just an easy cop out. dont blame bad parenting, or people who are just not mentally right... blame video games because its easy.
