Everyone misses the point about violent video games, namely that it's not the violence per se, but the fact that the player who kills the most is rewarded by rank promotion or advanced weaponry and even in the case of arcade machines, high scorer lists. It's not so much desensitizing the player against violence but encouraging it. It is only a few short steps to enacting this fantasy game play in real life for those whose mental capacities are damaged or compromised.
