Violent Video Games: Who's to Blame?

ResumePlay: The issue of violence in video games has been around for decades, but with the graphical realism in modern consoles the debates are fiercer than ever. Whether its about the chainsaw bayonets of Gears of War, the "killing hookers" in Grand Theft Auto, or the cold, emotionless sniping in Call of Duty, society sees a lot of problems in the games we play. There are supposed to be guidelines and rules in place to keep these mature games out of childrens' hands, but somehow they get them anyway.

So who is at fault in creating this issue? Mainstream society seems to blame the developers for even making the games, but are they guilty for what they've done? I've taken a scrutinizing look at the violent games issue, and no one is off limits for the analysis. See who makes the guilty list.

Yeah, that's kind of what I tried to say in the article. Almost everyone has contributed in some way, so I put us all under the microscope. I do think some groups need to shoulder more of the responsibility though. A parent, for example, needs to be responsible for what their child is doing.
