    Eric,

    That's some pretty sick stuff...

    Iowa State University psychologist have proven "the exposure to violent video games can desensitize individuals to real-life violence":

    I'm not sure where I come down on this; I think if a child develops a conscience and empathy (through good parenting, etc.) a game - as such - won't turn them into violent psychopaths.

    I do think, however, that in many cases parents today can't exercise the guidance and supervision they'd like to; in part because both parents often have to work; in part because of the pressures of our frantic, hyper-socialized (but anti-social) society.. with the result being that kids are more vulernable to various mind poisons - from rap "music" to uber-violent video games that de-sensitize them to callousness and cruelty - and thus, to mindless violence....
