Violent Video Games

Video games have been a topic of huge discussion in the past couple years. A lot of video games involve fighting and the media puts the spot light on those games; making them more popular. Reporters believe that the Columbine shootings and the Virginia Tech shootings involved young men who enjoyed playing violent video games. An example of a violent game is Grand Theft Auto. This game is all about killing prostitutes, shooting random people, beating up gangs, and stealing people's cars. It is a fun game to play, so it easy for young minds to think it would be a fun thing to do in real life. are so many shooting games that young children play and are influenced by. Thankfully, the violent shooting games usually have age restrictions on them; making it up to the parents if they think their kids are ready to be able to play a game like that.
