Disscussion: Violence in Video Games

Call of Duty: Ghosts
I support all kinds of video games such as puzzlers, platformers, RPGs, and games of the fantasy genre, and it all mainly has to do with Nintendo. But another type of game is out there, mainly popular to the other big-name consoles: FPSs, or First Person Shooters.

First Person Shooters have always really bugged me and left me thinking: why do people play FPS games or any violent video game (where blood or pain is clearly expressed)? Why is it one of the bigger gernes these days? What are the effects on humans, specifically teens and children? What makes people wanting more "Call of Duty clones"?

I want to hear from you before I express my thoughts in a later post. Send me your thoughts on Violence in Video Games at my Twitter (@TheCarterFitz) or send me and email at turtleboyfitz@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. FPS doesn't require any real thought. It's like a vacation for the brain.

  2. Carter, I completely agree with this post. I like the way you wrote it, too.
