Swedish Study: Video Games DON'T Make Kids Violent

* Video Games DON'T Make Kids Violent*

Of course not if they did i would be out there ripping people's spines in half,360 no scope collateral, etc.Only stupid people blame video games for something like when someone goes on a shooting spree or something.

Videogames don't make you violent.

But if you are violent to begin with, then games will increase that violence.

In the end, it's up to the parents not to let their kids play the most violent games like letting an 8 year old angry kid play games like God of War where you rip peoples head off in with great detail.


video games dont kill people, people kill people

Of course not, its the parents who gives and allows their kids to get away with everything and then when the spoiled brat doesnt get what he or she wants they get violent.
