  • Anyone who agrees with this video is an idiot, stop blaming games and do something about bullying or something.

  • popularizing mass shootings through the media is what causes more people to cross that line. In 2018, it became a 'trend' in the news, in 2019 it became something almost to be expected. in 2020 now that the corona virus outbreak occurred there is absolutely 0 news about mass shootings or school shootings, and that might be because the schools are closed so kids dont have anyone to shoot at now, or it could be that those mass shooters were influenced by the media.

  • Wars been made years ago before vedeogames , gun inventions are still growing , oh and melitaries need guns ammunition jets ships , same story as a vedeogame.. Welcome to earth. Good and evil.

    It really comes down to the state of the mind. Video games inspire violence no more than violent books or tv shows do. And even a font does inspire violence, it’s a very VERY small proportion of gamers that actually act out on it.

  • People say video games are violent and yet we had 2 of some of the most deadly wars our planet as seen yet way before video games existed and then the torture methods back in medieval times (the iron maiden the brazen bull the head crusher or the big giant poll that's shoved up someone's a$& and comes out their mouth)

  • I'm pretty sure if you gave the kid, who was about to shoot up a school, an awesome video game to play, he'd rather stay at home and play said game

  • Ok booooooooooooomer
