You know what I have always found strange about this? They say videogames make people violent because they are simulating killing living creatures.

Yet, centuries ago, kids used to go out and hunt and fight in wars in real life and that didn't turn them into crazed killers!

What they are really trying to do is cover up the fact that society is f****d up, and that there are alot of people naturally born with mental issues. These issues would have come up in some form or another, but they look at games as an easy source to place blame on.

Mature games are for anyone mature enough to play them. Kids may not be matured physically but some can be mentally. Sorry, but I hate it whenever someone says mature games aren't for kids. It'd suck to be your kids.

Wouldnt call it 100% true.

It's ridiculous to say that the things you take in dont have an effect on you. This is true for games music and movies. If you play alotta games with alotta swearing you might start swearing more (aside from KZ2 which will drive you to hate swearing with a passion). But I dont think playing gta or rdr will make you go out and kill someone....... or tie them to a railroad track O.o.

I read a study about the effects of music and it showed that ppl who listen to music with alotta swearing will start to swear more. But swearing doesnt physically harm someone. Its different than violence. I doubt a guy would walk out of a theater after seeing Ninja Assassin and try to cut someone's head off.
