Why the **** would someone drop a 60+ dollar game at a library for free to make a "more peaceful world"???!!!   
In my opinion, video games alleviate some of the violence, because then people go home and shoot up computerized images instead of a school    
INB4 school shootings started after video games, but imagine how many MORE there would be without games.

Studies that have been done on this topic has only shown positive effect, no violent behavior comes from violent video games

In my opinion, video games don't alleviate violence because of the fact that you're shooting computerized images instead of real people. If I ever got pissed off enough to shoot somebody, I'm not gonna think, "Well why not just go play CoD instead!". If anything I'm in a good mood and decide to play some video games, then get mad at the games. Now I'd be in a ****** mood which would rise the chances there being any real life violence.

But then you could say that about anything that annoys you.
Like work,
or school
or people blaming violence on video games.

to say there would be more shootings without video games is as just as stupid saying there would be less without them

Actually, games like CoD have shown to decrease violent tendencies. This might not always be the case, but there haven't been any signs that show the opposite.

Yes, but he said "In my opinion". I wanted to add that a lot of people have done a science or two on the matter.

Didn't one paper claim a pair of guys who did a school shooting practiced with CoD? Man, people who write newspapers are silly

breivik played it to get used to looking over a gun sight, but does that mean he got inspired by it?

Fun fact: Juvenile crime has actually gone down as video games have become more popular.

To support you, some of the earliest school shootings came as a result of the Vietnam War, like Kent State. It was really war that caused youth to become deadly, not the imaginary games that the media prefers to blame.

And massacres are even older. The first school massacre in the U.S. was around 1764. Some Indians busted into an elementary school and killed everyone except for 2 children.
