tbh, kids that are affected by violent videogames and become violent people are just as likely to become violent from TV. many kids/young adults understand the difference between fantasy and reality. anyone who doesnt, has the propensity to become psychotic and will probably be affected by another source if not by videogames.
blaming videogames is just scapegoating.
my two cents.
