Gaming allows a mental simulation of experiences building a substance called Myelin, associated with developing habits. If you play too much Tetris, as an example, you began to see the environment grouped in similar shapes. Simulations designed for both military/commercial training purposes are meant to develop a guide, a mental model for the unconscious mind to act in real life situations. To say experiencing (or witnessing) a simulated violent experience has zero effects on our minds, just doesn't seem technically nor scientifically possible. Is it causing enough problems so that we shouldn't play violent games at all? That seems like another topic then.

Violent video games can exacerbate tendencies in someone who is already violent in nature. They can influence someone who is weak-minded. They will not make everyone who plays Call of Duty go out and sniper attack people. People enjoy movies and games as an escape from reality, not to use as a manual for living theirs. You can take almost anything and try to argue it causes violence - there are religious zealots such as suicide bombers yet we do not condemn religion for inciting violent behavior because not all religious people act in this manner. People make their own decisions regarding their actions.

Children can be influenced easily by violent video games. They can imitate what they see in the video games like kicking and punching and they think that they are just normal things to do. As parents, we have to accompany them when they are playing games. We also have the select what kind of games they can play so that they cannot get bad influence from the video games.

This is rubbish from cave paintings to juggling everyone blames the newest innovation for causing behavioral problems, people just aren't that stupid. A few people who were probably going to be violent anyway may find it exacerbated by video games. Here's the thing all this stuff is thought about by religious people who just want people to read the Bible etc and its not like that ever inspired violence.
