Re: Do violent games really lead to real world violence?
I am a pacifist.
Yet, I love shoot-'em-up games. The Half-Life series, Unreal Tournament, Crysis, Bioshock, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Fallout, Hitman. Love 'em. Some are quite realistic, the others present us with comic book violence. And, I have been playing such games for a good 20 years (longer if the likes of Frogger are considered violent...after all, the froggie did go "splat" a lot).
Never once in my life have I considered it would be a good idea to move that into reality. It is not in my blood.
