If a person is too disturbed to play the game, then let them suffer not someone else. As for fast food and cigarettes.. My point is that the PERSON chooses to do it NOT the other way around. Noone forces anyone to eat fast food or smoke. What happened to self accountability?
To add to that: there was violence long before violent video games. Since the dawn of time there has been violence. There have also been mentally disturbed people. It appears, at least for the most part the biggest difference is the accountability factor has fallen off the charts. Many people blame anything and everything else for their own mistakes. Noone made that kid play video games, nor does it seem like anyone did anything for him. If there are red flags showing, get the kid help... Don't blame something else for the failures of his family and himself
