They can ban them in the uk if they like

I will import

I think they would be better of banning the sale of guns tbh..............

In my opinion video games do not influence anybody to do anything,

If they actually do anything crazy then its because they are mentally disturbed anyway. If video games do make people start killing people then why is there not more shootings..ect? Why havnt i murdered my neighber fr playing GTA yet? Why havnt i stolen a car yet? And ive owned all the GTAs since it was 2D

Not that people don't import that too.

I think it has its positives and negatives. What is classed as a to violent game?

ok, if the uk follow then, most after 9pm tv programs can go, a massive percentage of films, books, and news reports, etc etc

Well thats what i was thinking , whats next a PG only life , no violence incase some nutter goes on a rampage

Banned

some studies show violent video games decrease rage, so its all rubbish

Banned

lol i read that article and instantly thought of 1984/the thought police. As someone has said what is classified as violent/how can they really stop people playing them.

Theyd save more lives with an equally ridiculous idea - banning fast/loud music in cars (all I know is d&b influences fassst driving haha)

used to enjoy playing on a german server for a FPS everything was green ...no blood allowed

Old farts in government don't get that the majority of people who play these games are in the early twenties to late thirties range.

Rather than banning for the majority they should do something about shops selling to little kids.

If I were banned from venting my rage on games like GOW etc etc. I would end up killing someone. We are all inbuilt with the killing gene, so its better to kill artificially. More quality violent Xbox games please.
