I’m 48.

Started off with Doom 1 about 20 years ago.

Doom 1 was exactly where I started as well. And I always had guns available, yet never once thought of going out and murdering people. But now look at something like Doom 3 or the more modern games with even better graphics where you’re shooting realistic looking humans; they crumple and die as realistically as the animators are able to make it. I worry about children virtually acting that out thousands of times. If paper silhouettes could be used to successfully break down adult inhibitions toward shooting humans, what might these games be doing to kids in their formative years, especially those who already have some mental issue like all these shooters seem to have had? People in our generation were really too old to be seriously affected, but kids who have had access to this stuff since early childhood? Parents have to start acting like parents again.
