Following the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump made a statement condemning violent video games.
“We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace.”
Even more criticisms of gaming come from the older generation. The common argument goes that playing violent games causes violence amongst gamers, possibly leading to mass shootings. However, while their claims may sound reasonable, there is no evidence to suggest this.
