    Does excessive violence in computer games encourage violent behavior in young children?

    There are theories that violence in computer games contributes to anti-social and violent behavior in children. What do you think?

    Well, children are not as violent as they used to be and there are many more video games on the market. Also, most young males who play video games are in groups so they all can play video games together. If anything, these males become more social.

    I think it actually makes kids less-violent people, but it makes them less sensitive to violence. Imagine a society of adults who do not fight and are not violent people, but who are not bothered by seeing violence happening around them.

    As with violence on TV, it all depends on the child's life in his family. If the child lives in a family where he/she is pressured or treated violently, then depending on the child's personality he too can become violent and vent that violence where possible (e.g. school). In the same way such children are drawn to violent video games which may reinforce this behaviour.

    But the games on their own do not affect children so dramatically. My 13 yr old son has played Mortal Combat, Assassin's Creed and other games which include battles but he is a great kid: sound and balanced.

    I would have to say that it depends a lot on the child's school and home environment, and how violence is tolerated outside of the video game. games can be a great way for kids to vent frustration rather than physically turning it on another  human.

    My siblings played extremely violent video games growing up. As adults, they are animal and people lovers that fight everyday for humanity and tolerance. As far as I know, they are still catching houseflies and letting them go outside rather than swatting them. I didn't play those games. And I own a flyswatter.
