'Affects of Violence in Computer Games' - 'Affects of Violence in Computer Games'
Mon Mar 12, 2001 | 3:30P| PermaLink
Morally, I have to say that any time someone starts saying "the kinds of products your company creates results in the deaths of children," that you have to do a bit of soul searching. To start off, I'd say that there is a big difference between "fantasy violence" and real violence. If you see kids on the playground, and one points his finger at another kid and goes "bang, bang", that's really different than a kid bringing a real gun to school and actually shooting at another kid. (Newell)" Violence is the means by which this country was literally formed. So why do we hate it so much? The answer is that must Americans enjoy seeing violence in movies, video games, or reading about it in books, and those who oppose violence just happen to be some of the more vocal members of our country or they are politicians. We enjoy the violence of computer and video games because they offer us something that almost nothing else does: an escape from the real world and real world problems. According to Jane Marks, a psychologist in Tallahassee, Florida, games are a means by which to release pent up anger and aggressive behavior in a way that will not harm anybody. Marks also notes that if you become hyper focused on video games that you will start to lose your sense of what is and isn't real. When you become hyper focused on the games you are playing you start to develop a stimulus addiction. A stimulus addiction is when you need to play harder, more challenging, and more violent games in order for them to hold you attention and allow you to have fun.
