How important is violence to gamers today? (Hooked Gamers)

Hooked Gamers writes: A mother was trying to decide which game she wanted to buy for her sixteen year old son. She said something that nearly made me drop my gift in shock: “Do any of these games have killing in them? I don’t want my son playing any games where you kill people.” (Culture, Industry)

'Violence' isn't important to me...
... 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.

Hopefully not very important... If it is, that just proves things are going downhill lol. XD
