Game violence, bs or not?

This is a hot topic nowadays, the media doesn't seem to want to let this fade away.

I personally think games can influence a violent individual but someone who doesn't have any issues isn't going to magically turn themselves into a killer! Maybe I can see the argument about young kids wanting to copy GTA behavior but same is about the cartoons they watch etc. so parents should do their damn job.

I agree that violence in video games can be worse than violence in a movie or TV show. One requires you to actually press a button and commit the action, whether it's all virtual or not, it forces you to pull the trigger in order to win, and therefore takes desensitizing to a higher level. I agree, however, that violent video games do not turn you into a killer. Are they good for you in high doses? No, I don't think so, and I think a lot of games should never be played by anyone, but don't try to overly censor games just because a few moms can't tell their 13 year-old they aren't allowed to play GTA.
