Only if you're weak minded enought to let it affect your judgement. In which case you shouldn't be old enough to legally purchase the game.

I did a research paper. It's still a continuing study.

What is for certain is that the amygdala is active during these kinds of games which puts the mind into a fighting state.

This is sensible.

If you are influenced by games, then you are likely to be influenced by any other form of media.

It really depends on who's playing it. That's all there is to it I think. I'm not going to start shooting pensioners up after playing it. But not everyone is the same - so in a sense, yes.

The only way GTA effected me is me and my friends refer to each other as CJ, Sweet and Big Smoke.

They STOP me from doing violent things! If I couldn't torch someone with a flamethrower in the game world, what the hell would stop me from doing it in reality?

Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some of us crash land, some of us eject...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new

That's a very flawed argument you have there.

I blame society/ parents.
Only stupid people are influenced by media,exept for music.

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

You do know that a kids mind works like a tape recorder. It records everything and plays it back.

Who are we talking about here though? Kids or adults?



Kids aren't supposed to be playing these games. Thats the fault of the deadbeat parents.

Music isn't media, it's art, but then movies, games etc. can be considered art as well, as long as it expresses emotion and ideas, rather than mindless violence.

The problem is fundamentally economic.

Due to economics the parents have to work --> aren't around to take care of their Hellspawn.

I was raised by two loving parents and I played the most violent games available while listening to the most aggressive music anyone had created at the time. I turned out okay.

Kids shouldn't be playing GTA or Manhunt, so we'll assume adults. If kids are influenced by it, you can thank their parents for that, as they must be the ones who bought them the game.

They don't encourage violence, they offer an outlet to release aggression in a perfectly safe virtual environment.

If you go kill someone and video games get the blame for it, that's a load of crap, you already had mental problems to begin with.

all video games are meant to do that. when you are watching an intense movie, or listening to a 'pump-up' song you like, that can happen. if the games or movies or songs weren't gripping, they would be useless.

GTA isn't mindless violence. it simulates real-life and usually has a decent plot, if you look into it further then what mothers say. of course you can go on a rampage and kill people, but you get arrested and lose if you do.

YES Hitler definetly played violent video games, and don't even get me started on the Vikings!

I doubt it would effect most of us.

I'm sure it has negatively influenced SOMEONE though.

Just like SOME people use guns illegaly. But not many (compared to the size of the population)

I don't think they should outlaw it or anything.

You're saying mindless violence isn't art? How do you figure that?
