... however, many games are action games which portray violence, and that's perfectly fine as far s I'm concerned.

I also heavily disaprove of any (self)censorship in that area.

But just because I enjoy these games, which have violence in them, doesn't mean that I can't enjoy games that don't.

The violence isn't a selling point. Censorship would be a reason to boycot a game though.
