After doing my bibliography I have decided to use the same topic. The topic I will be writing about in the issue paper is if there are effects of video game usage. One side for this topic is whether the video game violence has an effect on the individuals that play the games. Young or old, people that play these games have been said to be impacted negatively or positive by videos games. That is of course if the game is violent or non-violent. The other side of this issue is that video games have no impact. Some educated individuals clam that video games don’t have an impact on individuals and don’t lead to any type of actions. They say that the actual violence that is “said” to be impacted by these people stem from the parents. They clam that parents are not being responsible enough of instilling proper morals in to their children and therefor the game had nothing to do with the kid’s actions. In my opinion this topic affects everyone living in our modern day society. The reason why I state that is because in America a vast majority of kids and adults are exposed to video games or know of someone who religiously plays these games. Some political individuals can easy to blame the violence that occurs in our society on the video game industries. This is due to the fact that violence is easily witnessed/ played in these video games. Understanding that that can be true you could also look at it in another way. Violence can be witnessed on the street of some our own neighborhood. Witnessing violence is even worse, only due to the fact that it is not just an animated character being killed, but it is an actual life in reality. Some ones brother, sister, mother, father, or child could be murdered and witnessing/ enduring that could lead to more violence because one maybe wanting to seek revenge. The effects of video games will be explain by different psychologist while using case studies that they had preformed trying to determine the out comes.
