growing up, violent games and movies were a very big part of what i played and watched, looking at the list of my Xbox 360 games and my large
collection of horror movies they still are. ive got 97 horror movies 3 comedies (shawn of the dead, hot fuzz and eric the viking).
much to my mothers irritation i saw movies like The Exorcist, Friday 13th movies, nightmare elm st series at the age of 10-11 im 31 now.
I can say in all honesty ive never had any desire or inclination to emulate any game or movie in all my years. at worst if i do something stupid i say
D'OH ! but lets face it theres worse things i could say.
i think it should be down to the individual parent and not upto the nanny state to tell kids what they can and cant do.
im getting tired of these whining parents who are too lazy to take an interest in what their child plays or watches trying to enforce their stupidity
onto every one else.
if i wanna hack, slash and blow away zombies/terrorists/mutants/vampires/cops etc then thats my decision and at least im not doing it in real life.
the irony is i dont even like guns
