    Is it Time for Us to Pull the Plug on the Gaming Industry from Producing any new forms of Violent Video Games?

    There’s a proven correlation between video games and gun violence, yet we still allow our children free access to these games, breeding an assassination generation.


    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, is author of the book Assassination Generation: Video Games, Aggression, and the Psychology of Killing with Kristine Paulsen and Katie Miserany, and below you will find his own review of his new book that goes in-depth into the problem our youth is having after growing up in generation of playing violent video games, and why there is so many problems now in America, he believes its is all connected, and we need to control the output of the video games from the rapidly growing industry that produces now mainly violent games for us to enjoy and be entertained by, but as he points in his book that our current generation can't co-relate to real world anymore because of the hours they spend in front of the TV set, and its only going to get worse with VR headsets.

    So what do you think is violent games really the problem like the Army Ranger points out in his book or not? -- What are your thoughts on it all, should games like the recent release of Call of Duty, and Battlefield 1 be controlled or not produced at all?

      It's easy to make video games a scapegoat though, so why not.

      Let's forget about:

      1. Flawed educational systems (abolishment of critical thinking skills, awards for everything)
      2. Lack of parental guidance. FFS, is it that hard to teach your kids right from wrong?
      3. Moral relativism, with a side of narcissism

      It's easy to blame tv movies and video games For the violence in the states but that simply doesn't explain much of what is happening there .I live in Australia we have these things as well with pretty much none of the violence / mass murders .What we don't have is easy access to guns and gun culture .We also have Social support services and free healthcare for the moment ...I think the United States would do well to look at those issues not at call of duty
