Do violent video games really breed mass murderers? First person shooters, in particular, have been cited as “factors” that may have led to the the tragedies at Columbine and, more recently, at Virginia Tech. The two videos below explore this issue, discussing it from a video game player’s point of view. This documentary aims to debunk the negative stereotypes — I played a lot of violent video games and watched a lot of violent movies growing up, but you don’t see any of that behavior manifesting itself in my real life — and yes, even the notorious Jack Thompson makes an appearance.

On a side note, I just wrote an article on video game violence and children for LoveToKnow Video Games. Feel free to check that out as well.
