Do video games make you hostile?

People are always blaming video games for violent murders and sprees. Grand Theft Auto is probably the most popular of all games when it comes to "the blame game".

Does playing video games make you  want to kill/hurt people?


My answer? No. Games are simply a form of media, and although they can be frustrating, i don't take any morals from them. Just like i don't take morals from watching tv shows.

  2. there are so many violent movies and other stuff that it cant just be video games. The media needs a culprit, and video games is it.

  3. We blame video games when a much larger mass is listening to music about torture, rape, and chaos. On top of that, few "Murderers" play Halo, or games that depict killing people. With the millions of LIVE gamers, why don't we have total chaos now?

  5. I hate people who blame kids bad behavior on games like this. Or the parents that dont like them seeing shit on M rated games but dont monitor what they play at all

  7. i hate it when people say this. violent people do violent things. millions of people play shooter games and dont do anything. obviously there are some people who have mental problems that cause the violence, not the video games.
