People today are very violent,yes.
But humanity has always been violent.
I AM seeing some disturbing changes in todays society though.
Overclocked were a great game btw, with lots of atmosphere.

I don’t doubt that there is correlation. Of course, correlation and cause/effect are different things (though I’m sure sometimes violent games cause violent behaviour, too) However, this, as all things, are a sum of many facts. The whole society has some very serious problems right now (as they always do) and such video games are just one among many reasons why the children may be violent.

And while for some it’s a cause, for some it’s a release - meaning, they can vent any aggression with violent video games and not in real life.

And for some they don’t have any effect.

Most important thing is not to settle for a black/white image of these things.

/end of stating the obvious.

If you have ever seen a 3 years old boy with a toy gun ‘shooting’ people all over him, you should know that people do not need video games to become “violent”.

Violence is a natural part of humanity, and it can be even a positive one,provided it is subjugated to morality and reason.

What is bad is immoral violence and sadism;ie this society doesn’t have too much violence, but too little morality.

The fictitious claim that ‘all violence is bad’ is in itself part of the problem.

All violence is immoral. The idea that we can advance our ideas, interests, and perspectives through a closed fist, gun, or any type of weapon is not only sick, it’s counter-intuitive, inevitably doesn’t work, but even worse creates more violence.

While I can grok (and it’s a bigger discussion than here) that some violence can be justified - it can only be justified on the grounds it is ending, preventing, or subliminating another form of violence, that the net impact is to lower violence (which it rarely does.)

I have no idea what you mean by immoral violence, as morality is subjective. However, I would argue that violence, as a means to solve any issue, is at its base objectively immoral.

Also, no videogames don’t make people violent. No art form really has the impact to make you pick up a gun, what it can do, though, is tell you where to aim it.
