One thing that I think has gotten a lot of attention in the News industry is “Does video games cause violence.”

I personally think it depends on what type of game that you play. First the game needs to be highly realistic, not stuff like zombies, and aliens etc. That is all science fiction.

The games that I think generally causes people to be violent are games like UFC, fight night, and WWE. These games show you that if you learn how to fight like that you can take down your opponent or anyone that you feel the need to do so.

John Howard said, “Games don’t cause the violence; it’s the stupid people that do it.”

I, for example, have not been affected by these games whatsoever. There are certain people out there that know this stuff is not always meant for violence and it is just made for entertainment.

Some people think the opposite way and attempt to reuse the stuff that they have seen in the game in real life.
Junior Will Munser said, “I am going to go home, and play Grand Theft Auto!”

You hear about all of these stories saying “Teen Kills family Member.” With stuff like that, the first thing authorities say caused him to do it are the video games he played.

This isn’t always the reason. They say this, because he is young. Most young people do play video game. That’s correct but that doesn’t mean the violence of that person is always created from them.
It isn’t always the video games that cause the violence.

Have people ever thought that it could be the way they are brought up, the surroundings that are around them, the area they live in, or even the parents they have. How do their parents treat them? Did their parents raise them up to know how to fight?

Nobody will know until they have talked to their parents or the people in which they grew up with.

  1. It is hard for me to believe that video games are such a big cause of violence but I can see the argument. Parents should be partly responsible.

  2. Great article, Chris. I think it's pretty dumb for the authorities to jump to the conclusion that the video games made him kill a family member. There's and endless amount of reasons why people take the action to kill another person. Video games are more violent nowadays, and it creates unrealistic situations for teens, but I honestly don't believe a video game can have that huge of an affect.

  3. I really agree with this Chris! The authorities like people on Fox News need to stop overreacting to video games. Reporters and parents like Glenn Beck should stop attacking the media for what kids do.

  5. I think that violence is within the person and a video game doesn't necessarily have the power to influence someone to commit a crime.

  6. great article! i agree completely, video games do not cause violence all together. it is the people and the way in which they were brought up.

  7. Violence is carried out because of video games, but so is bullying. A lot of people think these games are "cool", but sometimes they cant tell the difference between fiction and reality.

  8. I think that video games don't necessarily cause violence because kids don't know the difference between pretend and reality

  10. It certainly depends on the upbringing of the person involved. I've played Grand Theft Auto since I was in elementary school and I have never had any sort of violent thoughts related to video games.

  12. Violence and video games is quite the combo. I personally believe it depends on the game and person. I get angry when I mess up in GTA5, but I don't take my anger out on people or pets. Although I don't believe the same can be stated for everyone.

  14. It all depends on the person. some people can handle violent video games, others just go nuts. and I do feel a persons upbringing has quite a bit to do with it. Great Article Chris, you are a fantastic writer.
