There are countless reputable studies being done saying video games do not make people violent. You see the media, especially the mainstream media, and the NRA or politicians backed by the NRA, saying things like, “Oh look what they’re doing in these games! All these killing are going and they’re trying to blame guns? With all these violent games infecting our youth and making them violent!
When video games are mentioned, most people think of teenagers. In a like manner, people tend to look at violent video games as teenagers’ main source of violence.

Since video games and the people who play them vary in many different factors, it is extremely difficult to arrive at a simple yes or no answer as to whether violent video games make people violent. However, when considering that the question is if video games lead to violent people, I believe the answer is no.

Over the years, whenever controversial topics pop up video game violence causing real life violence comes ups most of the time. There are many views and opinions about whether video games can cause real life violence. Some people pegged this idea of video games causing violence to certain things like bullying at schools, mass shoots, and other things. But, most people can see that video games do not cause violence, speaking from experience as a person who plays video games. This idea of video game causing violent behavior can be disproven through the professional studies, the state of mind gamers, and the way video games help sort out real life problems.
That’s a really big deal,” This is a really controversial subject amongst gamers and parents, on whether violent video games cause real-life violence. Lots of people think they do, while lots of people think they don’t. There is research that points both ways in the subject, although I believe that the evidence points to it not causing violence.

He states that fantasy worlds allow gamers to experience a life without rules because morality does not exist in a virtual world (Tuplin, 2008). Games that promote death, violence and sexual dominance are found to be some of the more popular choices in America and with this being said I find it fair to say that majority of Americans find these games as well as violence to be both fun and amusing. I can’t say that I agree completely with Tuplin because I feel that these games can be beneficial in both escaping from reality and relieving stress during stressful times however I feel that there needs to be an age restriction and enforcement on such violent games and movies.
In all reality, it is what it is, a game. Furthermore, according to psychologist Christopher Ferguson, “Although there are some studies that find links between violent games and mild forms of aggression, there are also studies which find no evidence for any links at all.” Also, some investigators found that gruesome video games make teens convulsive and hostile.
