what do you think is this just utter bull or does it hold some ground??

im asking because i think its bull

ive played video games all my life (started playing 17+ games at age 5)

because theres an argument saying that playing games will make one more violent it cant be true because im not violent and when i am its about 5 seconds long and the most damdge i do is a hole in a wall ad thats when i get attacked rest the time i might as well be a fly on a pad of sticky paper

There is a discussion in the Off-Topic forum about this already (we didn’t have the Serious Discussion forum at the time – it could probably be moved here). You might want to read up – it’s not that long, and there are some very good responses, including one from a psychology major.

There’s also a segment about this in our Debate Topics thread.

So punching a hole in the wall is “not violent”? Considering how young you sound, that’s pretty violent for your age…

and i know this may sound weird but when im seriously angry i kinda see my action and cosequence before i do the action :/

and i dont punch walls because i dont deal with pain well so i tend to throw stuff
