I hope they also showed these kids some pornographic material and some highly violent movies too. You know, to see if they affects them too. For Science.
I've let my son play violent video games. He hates grand theft auto as 'you shouldn't kill police'. Same reason he took a dislike to Black-ops, first mission with the police. The only problem I've found is he is hellbent on dad getting a good car after playing GRID, seems he doesn't want to come to my house till I get a Dodge Viper. He's just a normal kid, not like how I used to be making Ak-47's out of wood after watching Chuck Norris movies or how cool numchuks and my brothers head were after Ninja Turtles. Even got in trouble once for **** trapping a cubby house with a dead weight type device, thanks to z-grade action movies for the education. Or half assed arrows into legs after predator and Rambo... Freaking good times!!!
My ex and I are probably few and far between, as in, we supervise his gaming. It's not uncommon for her to ask me what a particular game is like before she let's him play it. I havent seen him or his mates injured once and by his age my brother and i had wounds that would scar for years, thanks to movies. Going back to my youth, I'd rather him play video games than watch movies.
