I believe that violent video games do not contribute to youth violence. Here are the reasons why.Playing violent video games does not cause kids to commit mass shootings. Violent video games allow players to release their stress and anger in the game, leading to less real-world aggression. Violent video games may decrease crime because people are busy playing the games instead of committing violent acts.First, Playing violent video games does not cause kids to commit mass shootings. Katherine Newman, PhD, Dean of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins University,(JHU) wrote: “Millions of young people play video games full of fights, and shooting big guns. Yet only a tiny fraction of the game players become violent.” ┬áSo that means just because a kid is shooting some people or things in a video game does not mean they would just walk out of there house and start a fight or shoot someone. Second, Violent video games allow players to release their stress and anger in the game, leading to less real-world aggression. A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that children, especially boys, play video games as a means of managing their emotions: “61.9% of boys played to ‘help me relax,’ 47.8% because ‘it helps me forget my problems,’ and 45.4% because ‘it helps me get my anger out.” SO if kids are having problems at home, at school, or others places, they can get on their game and just fight or shoot aliens to calm down and have fun. Last, Violent video games may decrease crime because people are busy playing the games instead of committing violent acts. With all of these new games that are out like “Call Of Duty”, “Halo”, and the “GTA” series. These games are very addicting. And that the time they spend playing the games is taking them off the streets, leading to decreased crime. So those were my reasons why I believe that video games do not contribute to violence. Here are the reasons one last time. Playing violent video games does not cause kids to commit mass shootings. Violent video games allow players to release their stress and anger in the game, leading to less real-world aggression. Violent video games may decrease crime because people are busy playing the games instead of committing violent acts.
