Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Never >mind< the avoirdupois angle:
so inextricably entwined with the junk-food-in-excess consumed per capita in the dis-US.
(But Hey! /me loves bangers™ ... despite recently learning that) they are made from the fattiest part of the beast==it's the Cheapest raw material, thus once again: $$$ rulez/nutrition.. what is That?

Moi just opines that there is something gross? Evul? conscience-destroying about 'games' whose Aim so often is: destroying the [assigned-Perp] via all means imaginable, including its relatives, any nearby species ... (unnecessary that last because): why not take out their entire planet/solar-system/Galaxy? ... while yer At. It.

Just sayin.. EeeuWwwww ... over thousands of hours; 'course they're just playin at bein the Beast of Belsen; couldn't Possibly harm their evanescent psyches that, 'playin' involves ceaseless (MAGA- and mega)-violence. Nope, such a thought is completely-disproven ... 'cause so few of these Act-Out (until they become the CIEIO of Something. Right?)

aka Nothing exceeds like excess.
New Unlike football, wrestling and boxing, which teach kindness and gentleness?

New ..but lethality isn't their er, raison d'etre, right? (not to mention their bonus: free exercise.)
New I played football in 5th and 6th grade
You know what we chanted on the bus to away games? "Kill, maul, cripple, maim! We don't care, just win the game!"

Tell me again what's not the raison d'etre?

Don't believe me? Ask Carlin.

New I stand corrected: that is indeed the v-SUB-v Message of the game. Mea culpa: (also to the Coaches)
{{ sigh }} Violence + Testosterone go together like a tamper in a thermonucleear weapon. That's why the species has been sentenced to extinction ....

just a w.a.g./I ain't got no Cosmic-hot-line {fortunately.. I can't imagine Using it !! ...
New They know it's not real
There's no evidence supporting a link between video games and violent behaviour, just like there's no evidence supporting a link between heavy metal and satanism (the bete noir du jour of the 1980s). It ill becomes you to disregard this.

Sure, you might not think it good for the soul, but I've been playing video games for forty years and my soul is just fine, so there's that. (Anecdata? We're talking about souls and shit, so my anecdote absolutely is evidence!)
New As with anything
There will be violent people and non-violent people who play video games.

The violent games will likely make the violent people worse... but so will reading about violence, watching it on television, and anything else that presents violence to a person inclined to violence.
