to an extent, yes, video games can influence SOME people directly, and from a macroscopic scale, every video game user is learning about guns easily and quickly. If they did not exist, you probably wouldn't know what the names of specific weapons would be unless you had one.

there are several more legitimate arguments than the above (which i explained poorly) that explain how video games have an effect on people

If so many people play violent video games then why do a select few choose to go on a killing spree? Because they have underlying social or mental problems.

The fault should not be placed solely on video games, as it often is. Nobody wants to accept that it was partially their fault, so they put the blame on violence in video games, music or tv, which is unfair to those of us who enjoy those things but don't go ******* crazy.
