Games that kill

The discussion about games and there influence upon violent shootings etc. has been going for years now. Recentently I came across an account at the penny-arcade. It’s a unique perspective on this topic, by one of the parents of the instigator of alleged computer influenced violence. You can find the post here, it’s pretty intense.

Personally I’m not a big believer of the influence of games on violence. I’m pretty sure that if computers weren’t around, another excuse would be found. Seriously, if the influence was this big, the should be a huge problem right now. Millions of people around the world are playing these games, and don’t feel any urge to shoot someone head to smithereens, just because they could do it in that game…..
