people saying the video games cause violence might as well say that watching musicals will cause you to dance out in the hallway and break out in song throughout the day. violent people would be violent reguardless of video games.

Time and time again, people suggest that violent video games cause people to become violent. This is always refutted by scientific evidence. "Correlation indicates the possibility of a cause-effect relationship, but it does not prove causation." <--- Quote by David G. Myers (He has a Ph.D from the University of Iowa. He also wrote our current College Psychology book.)

it depends on one's common sense. typically, someone will have enough common sense to know that stealing a cop car or decapitating someone with a samurai sword probably won't go over so hot in real life in comparison to a video game. if someone doesn't have enough common sense to understand that, they probably should be locked up anyhow for the sake of the rest of society.

Just because i play a game where you kill off a couple hundred zombies, doesn't mean that i'm gonna grab a shotgun and drive into the cities.

In the difficult versions of the game, the enemies fought back and participants had to restart the level if they received too many hits. In the easy versions, the enemies simply walked slowly instead of directly attacking the player. Although the content and overall objective varied across the four versions, the game play remained the same. Forget crafting and spending hours collecting sheep in the world – all you need are 8-bit guns in a 3D world where the best player wins. Interact with other players as well when you connect this game online through your Facebook account. You also get to invite friends and battle with them!
