    you didn't answer my question either, i wasn't even taking shots at ya.

    i reckon there is a direct connection between those playing violent video games and wanting to shoot guns irl.

    it's just like watching porn, the more you watch, the more desensitised you get, until you have to rape somebody.

    Oh I didnt know you were serious.

    Yes, I do think that people who play soccer games and enjoy them can be influenced to try it out in real life. It's the same as kids watching real people play it on TV and then wanting to do it themselves.

    If you have common sense you will not do all the things you see in a game, I never tried to do bicycle kick because I know I would break something.

    Agree or disagree, it's true. However, it's statistical. What you should say is "violent media can increase likelihood of violent behavior (if done right)." Mirror neurons, observational/meme learning.

    Good you agree. yes the title could have been better. But from the earliest posts, my point was clear.

    No one is denying anything in this picture the way they do with video games.

    Its not irrelevant.
    You didnt post any research that will support your claims.
    2 biggest wars happened in a time where there were no video games and the most violent movies were those from Charlie Chaplin.

    That's such a dumb point. This is the kind of stuff people say though when they're avoiding the fact that games can affect behavior.

    The only thing that would make that point relevant would be if I said that all violence stems from video games.

    I agree with my man Langford.

    It's not something I've ever looked into before, so I just had a quick browse of some journal articles.

    Obviously, there's still a lot of debate within the research and the issue is clearly still uncertain. Obviously. But the idea that there's no supporting evidence sounds to me like the wild fantasies of a gamer.

    So because those correlations are meaningless, it means all correlations ever are meaningless?

    Y'know what else video games have been linked to? Enhanced efficiency in making good decisions quickly. You can look that up if you care to. Also, doctors who use video games have been shown to be quicker and more efficient in the ER and surgery. You can look that up to.

    Unless you want to believe doctors who play video games are running around stabbing people.

    Good to have you on my side Riz

    It's nice eviedence was posted since some people think thats important. I figured anything posted would either be ignored or picked at for not being 100% conclusive.

    It just seems like common sense to me that if these things can encourage good behavior, they could also do the opposite.

    You keep giving examples of people who weren't negatively affected, but no one is saying tha good can come from video games. It's just the understanding that both good and bad things can result from person to person depending on the situation.

    So it all depends on a person and not on video games.

    And you made a unsubstantiated claim and filled it with hyperbole. I don't think you realize none of us are taking you seriously.

    And Riz wasn't really on your side, either. He was on the side of seeking the actual truth. The actual truth is, there is no real data to substantiate your claim. There are a variety of factors that are failed to be accounted for. Not the least of which, is rationale human nature.

    But what do I know? I'm just a courier in the wasteland hacking super mutants with my hatchet. I guess tomorrow I'm going to find some people in football gear and shoot them point blank with a shot gun. Yep.
