"WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior."

I know this is old, but it's back yet again. My opinion is that if playing a video game can turn you aggressive, there's something already not right upstairs.

No, violent video games have not been linked to aggressive behavior. People have been making these unfounded, uneducated claims ever since the media found out the Columbine kids played Doom. In the 50's, it was comic books, some shit I can't remember between then and the 90's, in the 90's, gangster rap and Marilyn Manson (again, thanks for fucking that up for us, Columbine), and now it's video games. None of these things cause violence, the world has spent thousands of years tearing itself apart, and rather than own up to their own fuck-ups, people find a scapegoat to blame for problems that have been around longer than the things that are catching all the blame.

Everyone has thought about hurting people, killing people, and anyone who denies it is full of shit. Everyone has the potential to commit violent acts, but most people don't do it. Some people give in to their natural disposition to violence, and blame something else when it happens. Every time something like this comes up in the news, I want to slaughter the people that make these accusations, not because video games made me violent, but because I hate them for making bullshit accusations against the only catharsis I have.
