This is the greatest study ever for two reasons:

1) Well, anything defending video games from the crazed mass populus is ALWAYS a good thing.

2) RACISM AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE! IT EXISTS!

Think this is the video he means. Its hilarious its so one sided and the people against it are so misinformed its unbelievable they are reffering to incidents about movies not VIDEO GAMES.

The one guy they have for video games isnt allowed a say and hes the only one qualified to talk about it. Its so hialrious how ignorant and stupid alot of old people are in the UK.

I tend to disagree with this mate. I have a teenage son who does nothing but play on his Xbox. We actively encourage him to join in with family days out and interaction with friends outdoors, but it is ignored. It is hard as a parent, as he's a grade A student and is never in trouble... So tackling the situation can be tricky sometimes.

If we limit gaming time we're bad parents. If we ignore it we're bad parents too. It can be a tough one to call.

True dude, but it's odd for him not to get involved.

I do both, I make sure I do.

I believe it has more to do with weapons an how the War had glamourized how thrilling it is to shoot somebody. Although Video Games can be held accountable for some crimes... Not every crime should be linked to them. There was recently a guy who went into a bar with a hachet an killed some guy just because the lyrics in an Insane Clown Posse song told him to (rofl). Some people are just born to commit crimes. If we were all perfect then our world would be boring.

No they can't, at all. It's the actions of the person that commits the crime, always. Using video games as a scapegoat, is fucking ridiculous!

Yeah, I agree with that. Anything from films, games and music are always going to get blamed for certain instances. Personally, it's within the person that makes them do these horrific things, not the games, music etc etc.
