    I had a friend. He played Farming Simulator once. Later that night he cut his neigbour’s head off with a sickle.

    Ignoring the centuries of violence prior to any video game coming out-

    Does introducing video games to a human cause them to do violence? I would say no.

    Does introducing video games to a human cause them to be more violent? I would say mostly no. There is maybe a very small percentage of people who might get more aggro, but they might have something called pre-existing conditions, that when combined with stimulation & reinforcement and whatever else a video game might do for them, might make them at times (or all the time) more volatile.

    But, and I can't stress this enough, it is a very small percentage of people. In terms of preventing said event from occurring, I'd just advise [hypothetically speaking] to allow them to game but in strict moderation; there are plenty of things that can be adverse that are find in moderation... That's just one man's opinion.

    Source(s): btw, very obvious troll sounding question; but a sincere answer from me nonetheless

    Not unless the player is not able to tell the difference between reality and fantasy.
