Games and violence= Zero connection

I have grown up hearing from people like Jack Thompson and other adults saying that video games are noting good and that they will only teach me how to kill things and make my brain rot. To be fair my brain was rotten even before I started playing video games, but I whole heartly have to disagree with the whole violence thing because from my personal experience video games have actually helped me relese all out of anger I have held on to. For example, a few years ago I had one of the worst days of my school career I was pretty angry at some people and I felt I needed to take action against them, I was on the verge of going to school the next day and starting a fight but instead I went home and GTA 4. I not only kill like a million people in virtual reality but I also felt better about myself because I let go of a ton of stress. Another good example about video games is that I have a friend who has a sister that currently is in treatment in a hospital and unfortunatly can not get out much, but because of the donations from the community she can still have fun inside and forget about the disease she has because games take her out reality in to a world where she can do what ever she wants without worrying about anything. Now I have done my research and I have read all about those suicides and the killings like at Virginia tech and after I read so article's over I realized that these kids were not killing because the game told them to it was because these kids were mentally sick and the game pushed them over board and their parents should have seeked help way before any of this kind of stuff happened.

Like it or not Jack Thompson games our here to stay, they not only teach kids how to read( Reader Rabbit) they also have the power to change us emotionally.(Heavy Rain) Games can put out a message that movie's and books never could because they make it seem as if your the actual character experiencing these events. Thanks for reading :)
