Do you think Violent Games= Violent People?

I like following around cars just to see where they go. I also like being chased by the police in the LA river.

 

So much fun.

Sometimes I see how many stores I can rob in a row before the police kill me.

 

God I love that Kuruma in GTA Online.

I like to use the mod where you can tether things to other things with a gun and then seeing how far I can tow a gas station xD

Yes, yes you can. Towing a gas station requires a lot more finesse than towing people though xD

No, absolutely not. There may be a relationship between violent games and aggressive thoughts / or lacking empathy type behaviors. However, lets not forget different people are affected by different environments in different ways.

 

There have been studies in the past 20 years trying to tie violent people that are specifically violent  because of the violent video games they play. It's inclusive at best.

 

Same old argument regarding suggestive music.

Hell no.

I've played plenty of violent games, and I'm not a violent person.

I like to explode people in Half-Life using trip-mines though.

Also, this should be a poll.

The research is pretty mixed last I checked. But really, the best answer I could give is a big it depends. There are probably many people that would become violent because of it and then people whom wouldn't. 

Those who would probably already have a predisposition to violence.

No, playing violent video games doesn't make you violent... If anything, it could help a violent person get rid of their violent impulse, by using it in a game instead of against another person.

 

Of course someone gets extremely annoyed when they get disturbed while they are playing a game. I also get annoyed when I'm interrupted while I'm watching a movie.. But unlike a video game, I can press Pause very easily so it's not too bad, but in a game, it's not always an option, especially when the game is Online.

Unfortunately, many people do not seems to understand that and still disturb you...

I mostly get very aggressive when after telling them multiple times to shut up/stop it and they still trying to talk to me, touch me or outright stops me from playing by closing the PC or something...

yes it does, but varies across different personalities , 80% will deny as expected but you can sense the irony in it..

Details separate people.

From a psychological standpoint no.  A normal person would not become violent because a video game is violent.  The relevance is equal to that of the color sock they are wearing.  What makes people violent is completely a mix of physical and mental problems.  For example!  Someone who is bipolar is more likely to become violent due to lag than the fact that the game itself is violent.  There are things that set people off, but the only type of people who would become violent because a game is violent are those with specific disorders like psychosis and PTSD.  Where it triggers them to believe they are literally in a violent situation due to the fact that they can't tell where they are.  Otherwise, no just no.

Any video game can make people violent. Think about it - you're playing Pac-Man. Simple game, right? Oh but you can't beat a level. You try and try but never succeed - for some, that's enough to make people enraged and smash something. And for the record, anything can make someone angry or violent, depending on their level of self control.

No. I don't think it is fair to give all the credit to video games—TV made me want to beat people up a lot.

I think competitive games have a higher chance of creating a violent person.  At least in my case, i rage more when losing a competitive game, rather than say, dieing on witcher 3.

There could also be a large group that don't have a predisposition to violence that would become violent from playing video games. It's pretty new in the social sciences, There's still so much to explore. 

Human behavior is unpredictable at best. There's a damned good reason that our brains are predisposed to seeing human faces where there are none, because the single greatest threat/predator in our environment...is other humans.

Well, the more we learn about human behavior, the more or better we can predict human behavior. If you spend time explicitly studying social sciences around them, I think you'd be surprised how accurate you can do it (it will never be perfect though). But for the latter statement, most definitely. 

 

From what I've read 3-4 years ago (since then I took my psych major in a different direction) what most research seemed to point to that I read was the violence in video games made people desensitized to violence. That COULD moderate or mediate violent outcomes, but I don't know. I'm sure everything is different now. :/

You do realize you are talking about the most complicated/complex computer in the existence of the universe? Or at least known to mankind.

 

When push comes to shove, humans are unpredictable. When the fight or flight response kicks in, you cannot always accurately predict what the subject will do. There are probabilities, but there are always outliers to said probabilities.

There were violent games in the past (Doom, Quake, Duke, Blood .. to name a few), some with foul language everywhere but I didn't hear any violent attitude from them.

Truth is the age we started playing them (at release date) was much higher than today and this probably is the main problem here. 

Kids are more influenced from what they see and the level of shitty designed games nowadays with no real story behind just stuff like: run from the ghost or he will get you or shoot everyone in sight because you get power-ups do have an impact on their attitude.

Heard so many cases of The Slender man group or Call of Duty "militia" that is not even funny.
