"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.

It's not video games, at least, not just video games. It's anything that isolates a person from human contact. TV, books, your phone, the internet - think back on your childhood. What percent was playing outside, with people your own age, and what percent was playing games, watching TV or surfing the internet? People have lost the ability to empathize. We simply don't care anymore, we have more important things to do. Does your suburb have a BBQ every month where your welcome to come along, bring some macaroni salad and get to know each other? Of course not. Chances are, most of you know more people online then you do in real life. I remember when people went to the club to drink and talk and try to get laid. The last bar I went to, half the people were staring at the plasma screen, and the rest were either staring into their iPhone or beer.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.
