Violent video game

I think there is a tendency but violent behavior is a personal decision. Video games is just a game. To be violent to others without any cause is a different thing.
 
In the context of mind conditioning and the used of simulation to display a real situations in the field of education. Violent games has an impact to children. I've seen how unfeelings kids are nowadays. Thank to social media and violent pc and mobile games. Researches has vast amount of discovery regarding how video games and other forms of violence can be link to behavior. The end decision though, depends on the individual.

I agree. It depends on you on how you take it. You already know what is wrong or right in every thing you do. It depends on what you think. You could not be violent for no reason. As for kids, we need to guide them. It is better that we avoid these kind of games or educate them.

I think not! On the contrary, games allow us to release the stress accumulated through our life. Such as boxing a ragdoll is better for stress relief. Same goes and applies to the games out there. Violent nature doesn't come from the gaming, but lurks within a person himself.

In a way, yes there might be a slight correlation. However, until now there is no concrete evidence that can prove this. Most of the time, the evidence that scholarly journals’ editorial biases just distorts the scientific record on violent video games.

I think that violent games may somehow contributes behavioral problem especially with those kids that aren't guided by parents. They are wild and ill mannered while playing. The more extreme experience the more adrenaline rush. They have this attitude "Swag". This somehow influence the moral values of a child. Plus, kids will be very unproductive in most times.

Unintentionally. I guess it somehow "promotes" violence but it still depends on the person playing the game. If he's well aware that violence (be it on a game, film or tv series) is just added to spice up the material and should not be emulated, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Well, i dont think that the violent games promote violent behaviour especially if you are an adult. However violent games can certainly influence the minds of children and younger generation. When the children get addicted to such games then the behavior promoted in the game becomes a part of there life. If the parents are not mindful about this fact, then the children may become violent in there day to day behavior and it may have a serious impact on there minds in the long run.

I feel it depends of how impressionable, and how mentally healthy the person is. I've heard, for example, that mass shooters/school shooters have the tendency to prefer violent games that include guns and dungeons. I don't really think that they end up killing people because of the games, but I think they choose to play them/like them due to their violent nature. Games are just games, being violent is a choice. Unless you're a kid. Kids don't know what is good or bad yet, they need to be educated, that's why games have age restrictions.

No, but bad parenting combined with violent video games - or other stuff - might. Anyway, in the US and other places, many kids don't have two parents or have weak parents. It's sad and I don't really know what to do about it.

I think no because just like me I'm playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) and it is a shooting game. After playing 2-3 competitive games no matter I lost or win all games I feel happy by means of I did my best all throughout the game, I helped my team, and it relieves my stress. In terms of behavior, it doesn't make me violent it just makes me build good decision making as well as build a positive attitude towards other people.

There are other games that at first glance it seems to be a normal battle but if you are playing already, it's a violent environment on the on the screen. For example this carmageddon game, if you are a child and you do not see in your life car crash with human, then this game wi give you a visual example of how violent it is. That is for me, it's my opinion.

No, unless one is just mentally unstable in my opinion. Really, the fault relies on the individual and how they view fiction and reality.

I think violent games promote violent behavior, especially in kids and young adults. I am saying this based on my observation. I have noticed that kids start showing aggressive behavior when they play violent games too much.

Many experiments and researches involving thousands of participants have concluded that violent video games does not promote violent behavior or increase aggression. But in my opinion, it is still better to keep children away from playing too much violent video games

I disapprove such s tatements immediately when I hear them. As some people above wrote, violent nature comes out of an individual person. A game cannot develop what is already hidden within the person itself.

I don't think they do. Any normal person would never even think about doing something from the game or even the movie, there is no much difference, to another being. I used to play a lot of violent games and I love to watch horror movies, but I don't struggle with the desire to go on a rampage. I think games could even help, so the people who do have tendencies towards violent behavior don't do it in real life, but rather do it in the game.

If we're talking about kids, then yes every thing they get contact with affect their personality in one way or another, and recently there was a couple of games that had caused multiple suicide cases all over the world, that can only show how fragile are kids and how much of a dangerous impact "the wrong kind of games" can have on them, causing them to hurt themselves of others. But in the case of grown Men/Women, then I would say if somebody is missed up "up there" then either he or she plays Resident Evil or Dora the Explorer, It's all the same.

I think that everything depends on the environment in which a person is growing, since with a good education (ignoring psychological things) you can get to play very violent things and not generate any type of behavior in the person !

Violence doesn't bother me so much - cause sometimes violent characters are good guys. However, stuff like "Grand Theft Auto" glamorizes degenerate behavior. I would never allow my kids to play it - but I might suggest Crazy Taxi as an alternative.

Kids can be easily influenced. They also imitate easily. Therefore, when they play violent video games, they will try to show violent behavior. Adults are not easy to be influenced. However, those people who have something wrong in their brain might take a cue from violent games.

I think the feeling of a game is more catharsis than inspiration. I know there have been times I’ve put on GTA or Skyrim just to run around with certain liberties real life does not afford. It’s just like taking your frustrations out on a punching bag. Blasting through traffic at high speed while causing absolute havoc on the streets with a rocket launcher is my punching bag.

People give excuses but video games and anime definitely have an impact on the kids and the adults alike. If you want violent things those things tend to have more impact on your health and mind. You may end up making more violent decisions. And that shows in the behavior too. Most of the people who were caught criminals have history of video games too.

I don't think that violence in video games and that one in real life is connected in any way. Personally, I don't feel like shooting enemies in CS:GO and after that go out and do it for real. No, that is not how things work. If a person become too violent because of the games he play it's just the person himself. Maybe has got some problems, God knows what ones. But in my opinion these 2 aren't connected.

I think overall it's fair to have the violent games. I mean we don't have anything else to do other than that in most open world scenarios. You can't play puzzle in scenario of zombies or terrorism.

Of course violent games promote violent behaviours. It also promotes mental health awareness as people usually don't know they're crazy until they play some violent video games and decide they want to replicate their game play. lol
In all serious though, I think violent video games makes people feel a little more at ease when it comes to violence but some people just don't know where reality ends and fiction begins.

I certainly don't agree with you all! Yes, in the case of psychos - games can encourage "harsher behavior". However, the situation there is bad parenting causing psychos.

Well, honestly, when will the calls for censorship ever end? I mean, looking at music - how many people have said "Ozzy Osbourne causes suicide."? Well, it does - even for normal people - considering it's replayed a billion times on classic rock stations - :poop:. No, joking aside, plenty of well adjusted people - can listen to Marilyn Manson or the harshest rap.

☹

i don't get why you disagreed?
Well, I mean, come on. :cautious: Who hasn't played Mortal Kombat when they were a kid? Also, I've played war games where I would machine gun down people from an airplane (World War II - Pacific Islands).

None of this has made me insane now!

Some games are meant to be violent like say zombies and survival games. I don't know if we can change them to be non violent. And if we do what are we going to achieve out of that too. I have not seen things changed with games orientation in that context.
