In my opinion video games over the years have gotten more and more violent. Violent video games have caused lots of problems in children, teenagers, and some adults. Violent video games make you think it is okay to behave the way the characters do in the game. I’m sure you all have heard of the school shooting at Columbine High School, 13 young teenagers lost there lives because of the fact that the shooters had been playing violet video games.
If video games were not so violet children would not be so influenced to commit crimes. These shooting games and war games may give you a reality of how the war is but yet it is to violent for children under 18. Some adults can not even stand the violence in some games. Games can control your mind in a way. I have a little brother the age of 14, he is very caught up in his xbox, he gets home from school and you will catch him in his room playing away in a daze. You cant even talk to him while he is playing simply because he is so focused on the game he wont here you. If people are this obsessed with the gaming systems, then most likely they are playing violent games. In that case it is poisoning their minds.
There should be limits on to what images and profanity can be on video games now. I personally do not want to see my children playing violent video games and becoming violent at school or at home, or any where!
