I would go psycho if someone took my video games away from me. Just like any other art form, video games help keep me sane in an insane world. Video games are just as much an example of human expression as books, music, or movies. The problem with too much "simulated" violence in videogames is at the fault of capitalism. If the large majority of people who play videogames stopped buying violent games, publishers would make fewer games with realistic violence. The same thing goes for all other media. People love violence. We are all only animals who think we're civilized. Sure, most animals don't kill each other. I think people who snap and go on mass killing rampages have been driven mad by civilization itself, as a whole. There is not one thing you can point at and say "that is why this person killed all of those people". Anyone trying to look for reason in madness is stuck in the delusion that there is a purpose to why someone would kill over 20 kids and then themselves. I think the purpose behind mass murders is to show people the absence of purpose in life. Sigmund Freud people, he is important.
