My Conclusion

20 Nov

In my opinion, I do believe that violent video games can affect how children think, how they act etc. I don’t believe they’re a huge reason why children commit crime, but are definitely an aid. The main reason why children commit these crimes from my observations is because of mental illnesses and how they’re positioned socially in school/college and in general life. It’s evident from cases like the Anders Breivik shootings that violent video games such as Call of Duty can teach somebody how to shoot. And with Devin Moore, games like Grand Theft Auto can teach you how to steal a car effectively and get away with it by killing the previous owner. Violent video games are definitely a push towards committing violent crime and a reasoning behind anti-social behaviour but there are many reasons to why these events happen, not just one.
