What about the "FACT" that the first remotely realistic-looking FPS games were Castle Wolfenstein in 1992, and Doom in 1993?
Yet 1992-1993 is PRECISELY when the high murder rates of the late 70s through the 80s began steeply DROPPING?
Shouldn't the reverse have happened?
There are many explanations:
— the murder rate dropped because of the legalization of abortion (which I am not an advocate of): 20 years laters, all the father-less unwanted babies by evil mothers were not there to kill.
— the progress of medecine: many things that were lethal decades ago can be cured now.
