In conclusion, it is safe to say that violent games barely lead to violent behaviour in children.
However, they are not beneficial to the children because of their addictive nature, which can deter a child’s growth.
This is definitely backed up by their non violent behaviour.
It has also been observed that violence displayed on television such as in action movies or news has more chances of leading to violence in children that the violent games.
But how does one know whether or not a game is filled with violence if they have not played it?
One way to tell the content of a game is with the ESRB. A child may be able to talk a parent into getting these games for them, while not informing them about the rating system.This observation waters down the chances of violent games leading to violent behaviour in children.When interviewed, some kids who play this type of games say that they are not negatively affected by the games.However, the same case does not apply for violent video games.The effects of violent video games are as varied as the number of the games.The game a child plays can be a good or a bad thing in his life.For example, children who learn how to play chess at a tender age usually show signs of high levels of intellect.Of this, 16% was made through the sale of violent video games (FYI: Video Game Statistics by the Entertainment Software Association | Critical Gaming Project).Many parents are concerned about these violent games because of how they can affect their children.Whereas still others believe that there is a middle ground between these in restricting the sale or rental to minors.Many parents are concerned about violent games being played by their kids because they have no idea what the games are like.
