Doubtful.

I like violent video games. Doom, Quake, Halo...
I have lots of guns and I’m pretty much a nut.

Got no interest whatsoever in blasting a bunch of innocent folks.

It’s something effed up in the PERSON who does such things.

Maybe a father figure who whips your ass once in a while
imparts something undefinable but infinitely important.

What age are you, roughly? I was late teens when the gory video games came out, and we all thought they were hilarious because they were so over the top. But I remember the strange fascination some very young children had with them (preteens) bothering me even then. I really don’t think there’s a need for kids under 18 to be playing first person shooter games. Maybe I’m an old fart, but it just seems there’s a vulnerability to influence at those ages. I mean, there’s a reason silhouette targets were created for training soldiers.
