    While I do not know for sure if they play a contributing factor to an acceptance of violence - I suspect that for some they most certainly do. I can see nothing good coming from their overuse.

    Yes they do.

    When I beat my friends at Goldeneye, occasionally they were so infuriated they took that three-pronged controller and smacked my leg with it.

    Then I killed them some more!

    Here's the catch. If video games cause violence... why is S. Korea and Japan, major gaming hubs, have very little violence.

    The south koreans should zerg one another and each other to get stronger on a daily basis. So no...

    Self-harm in relation to video games, on the other hand, is quite high over there.

    Do you labor under the impression that every person in every different culture and social circumstance will respond the exact same way to the same stimulus?

    Long ago. Prior to Perfect Dark, that was the console game to play. I haven't played a video game in months, however.

    Well let me tell you smth.

    If you apply the same stimulus to multiple different systems, and some systems produce a non-harmful response... while others produce a very damaging response, then the problem doesn't lie with the stimulus, but with the system that are deficitary.

    So you can't hold the stimulus responsible. Look at the cultures (the systems) and see what the problem is.

    Re: Do video games cause real world violence?

    Every study on the subject has showed no link, correlation or causation, between playing video games and actual violence. Just like with books, movies, TV shows, campfire stories, limericks, legends, or paintings. We depict violence because it exists around us. We do not enact it because we depict it.
