    I'd find it extremely ******* ridiculous if somebody on this site supports the censorship or banning of videogames.... COMPLETELY ridiculous. I wonder if those people realize that their parents probably felt the same way about the media back in the day. It seems like older generations always complain about newer things like this. Eventually the kids they were complaining to grow up fine (for the most part), then they continue to do the same to the next new thing.

    REALLY, let’s see Columbine High School massacre (just fine?) Aurora movie shooting (just fine?) Virginia Tech massacre (just fine?) need I go on? Show me were in the history of the USA did mass murder have such a high count? So you just keep on thinking movie and video game doesn’t influence kids.

    Let’s not leave out “Gansta rap” and the long list of deaths it created in its own ranks along with street ones. To stand here and say that these games, music and movies don’t influence the population is an understatement.

    Make a statement like that back it with some proof

    There have been some insane mass killings a brutal murders in the 1900s. Alot more where probably never found out because we didn't have the technology to figure it out. So who knows what triggers it.

    Don't like that one, eh? Start reading this: http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/s...2/index_1.html

    There's even a chapter on the influence of tv/movies. It may prove your point.

    the news of these mass murders travel way faster these days thanks to modern media and the internet, if you don't think stuff like this happened back in the day then you're out of your damn mind

    Two on one? I think that qualifies as disparity of force!

    I grew up playing violent video games and even listening to *gasp* gangsta rap and I turned out just fine, you can even ask my parole officer.

    There are a lot of influences in life, some more powerful than others. Parents and friends are the biggest influences kids have, and parents can control (to a great degree) the friends a kid hangs out with, which gives parents the most power. The issue, then, is the lack of good parenting and being that positive influence that leads a kid down the right path. When children don't have good parental influences, they are more susceptible to look for guidance from other places, like bad friends, or maybe even TV. But it still all boils down to the parents, in my opinion.
