Blaming the video games again. Maybe we should start requiring psych evals and licensing before you can buy violent games.

I saw one of those games get up in the middle of the night and cause mass destruction down at the corner 7-11. Those evil games must be stopped!!

I didn't get the feeling at all that they are blaming the games. But it did seem they were saying that somebody should have seen this coming.

That might obviate some form of accountability. We can't have accountability. Desensitizing our youth to violence while drugging them for being restless or anxious and imposing our society's moral decline on them seems to be more the order of the day.

"On Killing" by Col. David Grossman.

He has pointed out that violent video games desenstize youth to the "real thing" years ago.

In fact, it was known before the Vietnam war, and figured into training modern soldiers now receive.

This doesn't surprise me at all. We get used to stuff, even bad stuff.

I'm curious as to what video game gives your points to the player that kills you? I've watched my kids play, and have played some with them, but none that did that.

As far as desensitizing, everyday tv programs do that nowdays
