    What happened to the argument that violent movies and video games were desensitising us to violence?

    Probably the only way that diabolical degenerate can shoot his goo.

    I'd be happy to drop an opinion. I'm in the age range but based in Tauranga unfortunately. Still, my preferences in gaming are a tad different from peers my age and perhaps that would be useful from a journalistic perspective.

    I think its just around the other way. The content and gameplay of most video games draws inspiration from historical situations of warfare. Violence causes video games.

    When i was younger i may have been a bit violent because of games but i think that was down to hormones and stuff more than the game making me a psychopath.

    Can violent *insert any violent media* make an already/potentially violent person even more violent?

    If it's anything like porn, we could eliminate murder in just a few decades if immersed in a violent media bloodbath.

    @OP - you have studied human history and are aware of the wars we've fought and the violent acts we've perpetuated as a race before video games were invented right?
    It is a sign of maturity to overcome your ‘natural’ instincts.

    I don’t think games make us more violent; they’re an escape and a release of that kind of energy/emotion, for me anyway.

    That said, I haven’t had the stomach for Division 2 these last couple of days.
