blame video games

Postby annitah » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:20 am

Why do they blame video games for the shooting spree ? I heard some reports about violent video games being part of the problem. But aren't these video games played worldwide?... Why is the crime lower in other countries?.... not everybody who plays call of duty is going to turn into a mass murderer in my opinion. What are your thoughts on this?

Violence is all over the world, I am certain less than 1% of it is video-game related. Violent crime in the US was actually higher during the 80s and 90s when video games were more light-hearted than they are now.

If people are going to blame violent video games then they might as well blame violent movies (which have been around for decades longer than violent video games)— people like to use them as an excuse for man's naturally bad nature.
