I like to start this discussion by saying,Jack Thompson is an idiot (but that isn't the point of this thread). I say that because he dosent use any evidence and never points out any truths in his rants.
I am also a gamer and love killing people in video games, but I do think there is a connection to some violence and games.
I mean,if your 5 years old,and start playing GTA and keep playing M rated games ,killing people on streets might turn you into a violent person.
However,its not the game developer's fault. Games are rated for a reason and they shouldn't be blamed for people getting shot because '5 year olds are killing people in video games'
Not to mention,if you have a mental illness, that games might provoke someone to shoot someone,but it is also not the games fault.
I feel like I could have worded this all better,but I'm tired...
