Video Games and Increased Aggression

            Violent video games have always been a huge controversy because they are truly graphic and can get very aggressive and are the reason for some of the violence that people are committing. Playing violent video games has made a tremendous effect in the violence that has been happening around the world. Violent video games can also make teenagers very competitive and they can start to bring the game into real life. First of all, the top 10 video games out of 20 best sellers are violent games. This shows that many gamers prefer to play violent games than other game. For example, in 2008 more than 90% of the teenagers between the ages of 12-17 had played a violent video game (Procon.org). To be more specific, an attorney said, "A desensitizing impact on young, impressionable minds." This proves that if so many teenagers are playing violent video games, their minds can confuse the player into thinking that the game is more than just a game that it can be real life, because their minds can easily be tricked.
             Secondly, many of the players become very aggressive when they start to play the violent games such as Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Studies have shown that while playing violent video games the players heart rate rises and it takes up to ten minutes for it to go down. For example, there is something called a behavioral script and that means that players get so use to the violent that when it happens in real life they do not see it as something bad because they are so use to getting rewarded in the game. To be more specific, this can lead to players raping women and not finding it bad because in games just as Grand Theft Auto in order to gain points they must abuse a prostitute and the kill her to steal her money. This shows that many gamers tend to get so addicted that they start to think that the real world is just part of the game. This can drastically affect the person but also the people in the world.
