Video Games Do Not Cause Violence
10 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Now, I'm going to begin by saying that Law & Order/Law & Order: SVU are two of my favorite TV series, I just can't get enough of them.

However, I'm so tired of the notion that games cause violence. I do agree that certain titles are extremely graphic, but that's what the ESRB is for. I've heard the argument "kids still get their hands on them durr". That also applies to alcohol and anything, really.

If someone murders somebody because they did it in Grand Theft Auto, then they were plenty capable of doing it beforehand. Politicians and soccer moms are just looking for something to blame. Let's sue Al Pacino for his portrayal of Tony Montana. That was violent. Maybe that was it. Or CSI or True Blood or any of that.

Perhaps I'm biased because I'm a gamer. I play rated M games. I've never killed anybody. There's no accountability in the world anymore.

And that is my review on one of the most mind-numbingly stupid episodes of SVU I have ever seen.
