Quoting MX23:" why is everyone so quick to blame video games when a shooting happens. i play them but dont go around shooting people. video games dont cause this."
I certainly don't think it's only
video games. I think there are many, many things that have contributed to society becoming the way it is regarding violent outbursts like the on one Friday.
But how can you deny that letting kids as young as 6 and 7 play an xBox game all day where they are shooting human beings or zombies does something to their developing brains? They get desensitized to killing (same with watching violent movies or violence on the news). To me, it's sort of like how so many serial rapists and/or pedophiles started off just watching porn. They watch others doing it and think it's normal. Of course not every person who watches porn turns into a rapist, but everyone's brains are wired differently.
