I loved watching Horrors when I was younger. The scarier the better. It gives you a rush, when you're really scared. I can't get that feeling now
because when you're older Horror films just don't strike that chord anymore.
I'm glad I watched them now though. It used to be every Friday, me and my friend would try to find the goriest scariest film we could get our hands
on, along with a mountain of junk food. Those were quite literally some of the best days I remember.
As for games. A violent game is great to let your anger out. Very few people are affected in a way in which it will change their personality. You hear
about 1 or 2 instances where someone did something because of a violent video game, and now everyone wants to stop kids playing them. It's an
experience, and 99% of the time, it's just fun. Steal a car and start a police chase. It sounds bad, but in a game, it's just amazing. Plus, it
gives them so much conversation with friends the next day. You share your stories of what you did in the game. It's sociable.
It's like parents who try to shield their children from swearing. Sorry, but by the time they're 7 or 8, they know those words, they know what them
mean, and they'll be using them when amongst friends. I wouldn't encourage it, but just know that it's impossible to keep these things from them.
