They don't teach anything, they entertain kids and adults. I think most kids can better distinguish between video games and reality. It's mostly
older people that didn't grow up with stuff like that and because they wear their rose-tinted glasses think that it's awful, disgusting and whatnot.
Same people who as kids propably watched Tom & Jerry and other violent cartoons (but those were good, because they were old and until 30 years ago the
world was perfect as we all know
I played nearly all First Person Shooters that are available, all other "violent" games, i don't take them serious, if anything, most of them are
either over the top or just boring (like Dead Space). I played them since i was a kid and was never violent, never got into a real fight, never
thought "i have to try that" and even though i have 2 very sharp katanas hanging on my wall i never thought "hey, let's play some Shadow Warrior
for real". You know why? Because my parents raised me in a good way, they spent enough time with me, they talked with me about everything and they
just made sure that i became a functional intelligent human being
The kids who can't distinguish between reality and fiction are those with bad parents, it's simple as that. Raise your kid in a intelligent, loving
way, talk about the video games and other things and the kid will grow up just fine.
After all, Violence existed 2000 years ago, Hitler and his cast of nazi idiots never played Mortal Kombat but they iniated the Holocaust, Stalin never
played Kane & Lynch but had his Gulag and famine and so on.
All the agenda against all violent media is just stupid.
Like i said before: You don't like violence? Look away! Might be too simple and of course this way you can't open a whiny topic on ATS but it would
