Don’t you hate it when people blame video games for violence? I sure do. After a kid goes and shoots up some people that was said to be a fan of video games, people start blaming video games for the violence, it doesn’t make any sense. To me video games offer an escape from reality and a source of competition, which is healthy. If people really want to blame something, blame those kid’s parents. Parents are the ones who most greatly influence their kids so, if the kid has violent tendencies and eventually goes to murder people, then there is something up with the parent’s parenting skills. On another note, normal people don’t just want to pick up a gun and go murder people for the hell of it. So when people blame video games for violence, they are telling a small part of the story.
