Violent Video Games Make us more aggressive?

These four links prove the science behind the violence.  It is interesting to note that whenever you bring up these facts to those whom support violent video games; they aggressively attack the messenger trying to help them heal their minds.  Their aggressive attack(s) are added to the already mounting scientific data.

Video game addiction

These four links give scientific evidence, and concerns about how addicting video games can be.  This is a real danger to all of us gamers in this industry.  We need to be open, and honest about getting real help for those who become addicted to video games.  God should be #1 in our lives, so an addiction to anything is a serious problem.  What makes the addiction to video games worse, is many are not even aware of it.

Exploitation of women in video games

There is a deep rooted problem in video games; and as the technology has gotten better, this problem has gotten worse.  The problem is women being exploited in video games.  This is rarely discussed in the industry, however it should be.  There needs to be accountability on all sides.  The companies that are selling this trash should be held accountable for the ways they are molding young minds.  The players who comit acts of violence against women need to own up to the fact they did it of their own free will.    Below are some links on this topic:
