Then by this logic i should have been a serial killer since i played the hell out of 007 Goldeneye...*Rolls eyes* St@pid media.

SO then Hitler did play video games and that's how he decided to murder the 6+ million Jews during WW2??

I think if Hitler had GTAV he would be too busy to even think about killing 6million jews!

why not compare tv shows, films or music videos to violent crimes, im sure theres a much bigger influence from those than video games, also i think by carrying out acts of violence or crime in a video game kind of satisfies peoples desires to go do this in real life, so by doing it in a game it would actually prevent them from doing that shit. ive always loved violent games and i dont go round attacking people, theres just a line, some people are just stupid and actually think they could get away with that stuff in real life, and then theres idiots leaving their guns near their children or even giving them guns as a present.

They might have a point, when I was a kid I played a game that influenced me so much I did what I saw in the game. That's right I got a paper route.
