Really?

We're gonna have this discussion again?

I swear if it isnt women it's violence. The media wont be happy until the internet burns to ashes with all this flamebait. We just got over one fake controversy and we've had this discussion many times before. Give it a rest.

It's been proven over and over that they don't, why is it that nobody ever asks "Does playing FIFA make you a better football player?" or "Does playing Cooking Mama make you a better chef?"
The overwhelming majority of people hate violence, they go out of their way to avoid it so somehow watching or playing violent games is going to totally change the way people think about violence, literally flip their deeply held convictions on their head?
Let me explain something about violent men, they don't often play video games, they are usually out imposing their will on some other person or getting into bar fights just for the hell of it.
I like the logic in the line "If video games had the power to influence people's thinking then 80% of the people who use Facebook would be farmers already"

The answer is YES ... and that violence is present when gamers are outside the stores desperately waiting to get their hands on that incredible piece of game! ;)

Yawn...
Of course they do. In fact just after I played last night I went on a killing spree in my neighborhood. I then proceeded to use copius amounts of mind altering drugs then went and stole the goodyear blimp and went on a joyride.

My god, GTA V is awesome!
