    Myth 9. The effects of violent video games are trivially small.

    Facts: Meta-analyses reveal that violent video game effect sizes are larger than the effect of second hand tobacco smoke on lung cancer, the effect of lead exposure to I.Q. scores in children, and calcium intake on bone mass.

    Furthermore, the fact that so many youths are exposed to such high levels of video game violence further increases the societal costs of this risk factor (Rosenthal, 1986).

    This doesn't address anything I said. Your source itself states that it does not have any kind of information from habitual video gaming, who incidentally make up the majority of video game players, and how it relates to violence. Saying that in a video game you can become a hero or a criminal says nothing about how this relates to violence.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    The constant and continued erosion of the idea that you are responsible for yourself and your actions?

    millions of people play violent video games and never misuse it, what's the point then?

    In the end, you just our own personal version of Jack Thompson. You have a vendetta for some reason against video games and are looking to take it out. That's why you brought up video games in the first place for a story that had nothing to do with video games.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    That's part of it. Another part is the same sentiment at the societal level.

    No matter what example you want to give, there's -someone- that will argue that the blame lies with someone/thing other than the person that committed the act.

    The ****ty parenting pretty much goes hand and hand with the societal changes and has a snowball effect.

    Ten sets of ****ty parents with 2.5 kids each raise those kids to not take responsibility equals 25 ****ty parents in the future that do the same to their 2.5 kids which leads to 62.5 ****ty parents and so on and so forth.

    What? Like blaming video games for youth violence?
