As someone who is medicated for anxiety and depression, I always thought the whole SSRI's make people go nuts was crap. Recently, I was put on
Welbutrin. Before taking it, I'd never had a real homicidal thought, just the fleeting "I could kill over this" that goes away instantly. I'd never
felt true rage. Boy did that change, and quickly. 3 weeks in, and I was PISSED all the time. Over the stupidest things, "you ate my garlic toast,
how could you?!?!?". I realized that I was in serious trouble and wanted to hurt people. Scared the living sh# outta me and I stopped taking them
immediately. The rage was almost intoxicating. I swear if I hadn't stopped, I would have killed or hurt someone within days. Lesson learned, do not
f# with SSRI's.
Also, I've been playing violent games since Mortal Kombat 1 was on Super NES. Personally, I don't feel desensitized to real world violence because I
know the difference between reality and fantasy. I do some heinous stuff in video games that I would never think of doing in real life. Hell, I've
never even been in a fist fight. If I ever see a dead body, I know I'll probably puke my guts out. Seeing real violence and seeing fake are totally
different in my view.
