And whats wrong with this? What in earth is wrong with showing and using guns in games
I think you may be missing my/our point. Everyones looking for causes of the terrible effect. Many point to only the inert gun.
I think we need to consider all influences, including parenting, bullying, mental health, drugs and repetitive witnessing of violence (actual, media, gaming; Im pretty certain that studies have shown that such gaming affects brain function, hormonal activity).
I didnt say the violent games are wrong, just noted their possible influence. I will say that parentally unregulated frequent violent gaming by under 18 years olds is, to me, less than healthy or wise.
