    yes i do love video games so i'm sorry to all you violen t video game fans but guys this is the truth....
    Much props for standing out against the majority, but I must disagree! The blame isn't on the game itself, people need to take responsibility for their actions.

    Violent video games are made with the soul purpose to entertain. What people do after they play these games is up to them. It's always easier to find something to blame than to take responsibility for our own mistakes.

    Yep, I completely agree! (except for the "soul" part...... ^_^;

    Shadowskin, I humbly suggest you read the other posts first, or at least give a more concrete retort as to why video games should be banned........ I respect that you have your own viewpoint, but we cant see that if you dont provide explanations......

    As for now, I still agree on not putting the blame on video games.........

    Re: Should Violent Video Games be banned?

    I'm just a video game fan...yes that includes violent ones, so obviously I'm not going to want them banned...however I do think they should be held to the same standards as movies. Compare an R rated movie to an Ao game...pretty much the same...why the double standard? is it because you take a more active role in the game? probably and I guess I could go along with that, not that I have a choice. But when does personal resposibility come into play, why does one individuals actions reflect the society? Besides video games alone don't make someone violent, there are a lot more factors that go into it that that.

    In the end yes these games probably could influence a small fraction of kids to do bad things, but what else was going wrong in their life to cause this...but where were the parents, why didn't they stop their child from playing?

    A while back now, there were people on TV protesting that violent games should be banned ( here in Aust). they were more specifically talking about GTA. They showed kids younger than 10 playing it! Also I heard sumwhere that someone shot somebody because he was heavily influenced by a game ( i think it was hitman)

    I don't think that they should be banned. Parents should take more control over what they are buying for there kids. If they have a problem with how violent the game is don't buy it! Why all of a sudden do they have to ban a game? GTA is for older people not the teenie ones! Those parents that don't realise that.. geez...

    By the time I started playing those type of games, i knew right from wrong and, between games and reality and was no way influenced by them.
    well i suppose really it depends on the content of the game. Such as how graphic it is and also how great the graphics in the first place. As an Unreal Tournament 2004 player, i don't thinks its that violent but when you think of it as a parent, you worry that if the child thinks it is ok to kill someone in a game then its ok for them to fight in real life.

    I don't know if this has already been brought up in this thread so i do apologise for repeating it. But here in the UK there was a killing after a child had played the game PainKiller i think it was. He was play fighting with his mate with a knife and killed him. Since then there has been better protection for child buying games.


    personally i think they should be more tuff on who actually buys the games and who entends to play them because as graphic cards improve, the more detailed the blood etc will be (although to some games that would be more realistic, to other people it would seem to real).

    Companies like Rockstar are always getting sued because their kid picked up some crime technique from GTA games
