Canada, Age 12

People, especially parents, these days think kids are playing too many violent video games. They think that playing violent video games will turn kids' minds into ''hypnotized violent people''. Is it true?

Kids can become violent.Sometimes to be popular, kids play these games. Still, can kids who play extremely violent video games turn into violent people who lock themselves from the reality of the world instead of being in it? Is it worth it?

Girls think that there should be no violent video games. Boys, on the other hand, think it's okay, if it isn't ''that violent''. What's the real definition of ''that violent''?

So, what do you think? Should there be violent video games?
