Violence:

To say that gaming, music, movies and any other medium doesn't have SOME kind of effect on people is absolutely foolish. It would assume that all of us have the same judgement level of reason, we don't.

Some of us, like myself, know that GTA4 is fake and funny, Stalker is a "what if" fantasy, etc. etc. There are unfortunately people out there that have a much harder time drawing the line. Some people cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality.

So as much as I read PCGAmer and their dimwitted staff stating that "Games cause no violence" is just folly. They may not be the only source, they may be part of a minority problem, but none the less it is a possibility.

That same reasoning could be applied to bad drivers. I have had one speeding ticket in 22 years. I have a buddy that has had 2 speeding tickets, 3 DUI's. Does that mean we get rid of cars for everyone? No. I am just saying, some people have a hard time with it.
