Why We Kill

After wrapping your fingers around his throat, you smash his face into a burning hot-plate and hold it firmly against the bright red steel while his skin chars and blisters. His screams hint that he’s about to give in and rat on his friends. In Splinter Cell: Conviction, torture is a gameplay mechanic. Put a new disc in. Now you’re Ezio Auditore Da Firenze jamming knives into the throats of your family’s enemies – a particularly terrifying and gruesome way to be murdered, if it’s possible to rank such things.

If you actually read the article you would see that it isn't a "scare article". The writer did a great job in going into detail about why violence is in games and why many enjoy violent games.

We kill people in games to suppress our rage in real life, in my opinion. I might kill about a hundred people in a gaming session in an FPS game, but at least I never feel the urge to do so in real life.

Gamers are generally very calm, timid people and that's because they can de-stress by kicking back with a game and just forgetting about the rest of their life for a while.

2. It's fun and satisfying.
It's THAT simple.

I think that the only reason that I start killing people is because they started shooting at me first. Well it's either that or the fact that I'm being chased by the cops and mowing down a bunch of bystanders is the quickest way to a shortcut that will loss the cops.

You cant kill in video games, You simply press buttons until an NPC falls to the ground and is programmed to stop moving, and if you are lucky, digital red stuff comes out which is supposed to resemble blood.
