Do you think kids get more and more violent after playing video games? I think that kids do get more violent and learn more negative things from video games. Such as when kids play games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Call of Duty they want to shot and kill people. Games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto are rated M for a reason. An M rated game means mature, so you have to be 17 or older to purchase. Young 13 year olds should not be playing these games and getting so much negativity out of the game. So I think video games do cause kids and teens to do violent things.
Now a day every video game has something violent going on. Such as in 2010 the top 20 games out in the market were violent related. When a kid sees in a video game that he can beat someone else up and get away with it they think they can do that in real life. This will increase bullying and kids are being taught not to bully. Every kid plays video games even if it’s a racing game or a shooting game. In 2008, 97% of kids from the age of 12-17 played video games. Most M rated games have sexual violence and when a kid sees that in a game and then beats the girl up. The crime rate for rape will increase as it has. A study in 2009 found that it only takes a child four minutes of playing a game to make him have aggressive and violent thoughts going through his head. The critics of violent video game has that bully has increase 32% because of violent video games. Also in the study when a child sees blood when beating up or killing someone in a game he will have more aggressive thoughts than normal.
Just in one year first person shooters have brought in 5 million dollars. First person shooter is games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield. The shooting in Newtown, Connecticut killed 26 people including teachers, principals, and students. The Shooting occurred in an elementary school known as Sandy Hook Elementary. The shooter was a Call of Duty player; he played above average of a regular teenager. He was almost addicted to Call of Duty. He saw violent crimes happening in the game and then he causes them at the elementary school. Violent games can sort of be like a gateway drugs, you start off with simply shooting someone in the game then you go to stealing and killing then your go more towards killing everyone in the game. Then when that isn’t enough you take things out of the game and do them in reality.
Video games not only cause bad behavior, but cause you to do badly in school. Back when I used to play violent video games I would come straight home and go right to my room and play video games until it was time for dinner. I...
