The only correlation they have found between violent video games and violence are the studies done by institutes that are already bought and paid for
by the government.
A tax on violent video games is not the answer. A weapons ban is not the answer. More taxes period, is not the answer. The blame is not on the
video game industry, it is solely on the individual that perpetrates these crimes against humanity.
I have been a gamer for the better part of 25 years. I've played them all, from D&D to Phantasmagoria, to CoD, to Left4Dead, Grand Theft Auto, and
everything in between. I am a balanced individual. I have plenty of friends, I have a loving girlfriend, and a fantastic family. My favorite genre
is FPS's and MMO's coming in a close second. For the 99.9% of gamers, that is a fact. It is that .1% that are already prone to violent tendencies
that acts committed in games translates to acts committed in real life, and that is even pushing it.
I will be personally writing a letter to this individual to let them know that it isn't okay. That blame resides on the shoulders of those that
commit those crime, not the video game industry.
And besides, we see worse images on CNN, MSNBC, Faux News, HLN, etc., etc., etc. every day! Where is the tax on those companies?!
Oh yeah, they're already "government run."
