Children are like architecture: a few grow up to be terrific people who contribute to society and enrich themselves.

The rest just get plowed over by their endless fuck-ups and bad judgements, and are largely forgotten about by their 30s.

Jordan Peterson had a fairly good and in depth discussion on this that's about 38 minutes long going over various reasons as to how or why a male would retreat to video games. One of the reasons mentioned was postponed gratification which acts as an incentive for men to be productive. Modern technology certainly has an effect on one's morals or perception of the world that is for sure.

Much the way you'd be satisfied after long hours of hard work to achieve success, video games can provide a similar feeling of success through digital means making it easier for young men to live out fantasy and get a feeling of reward of postponed gratification. This could be a good thing but it could also be bad.

Video games alone can't be blamed for violence in the media, Hollywood predates violent video games, but it certainly can desensitize an individual to violence rather than promote it.

In a dystopian future setting it may be too difficult or expensive for some to go see the real world as they wish so perhaps video games can give some young individuals a chance to escape the confines of reality for a short time but it can be a health detriment when left unchecked.

In the game Runescape the Jagex team spent effort to warn players to look away from the screen every 15minutes while playing and to take breaks often. There were even promotional events about mental health and well being which is a step in the right direction for concern about player safety. What does it mean for society? Well to be honest I believe it will just be a common form of social interaction or a digital playground as it has become more socially acceptable to play video games, but I think men or children will still find a sense of postponed gratification through means that are more hands on with life experiences such as the arts, sports, crafting, fishing, hunting, studying, etc. There are some things in life that video games just cannot compare to.

There's empirical evidence that suggests video games can lead to increased feelings of aggression in the short amount of time spent after playing the game, but this doesn't translate into generalized, long-term, aggression.

I think the real problem with video games is that online ones make teenage white boys think it's cool to say the n-word and have been a locus for recruitment into the far right (because guess which group of politically-oriented geeks plays video games the most?) On the other hand, when I play tf2, there is no shortage of people with communist symbols in their names or avatars or on flairs so, like, it ain't all bad, comrades.

Technology has an influence on your perception of the world. Men like game for fun and reward. Media use violence and drama for entertainment. Games offer escape to those who can't afford to travel much or get out. Some things in life games can't compare to. People still gonna be people.

While I'm pretty certain he's talking out his ass, there have been studies done on aggression and it turns out the content of the game doesn't make a huge difference, it frustration and losing does. The main predictor for violent and aggressive behavior as a result of immediate aftermath of gaming is really just about someone constantly losing and it can be from any game.

Video games desensitize kids and make them feel there are no ramifications or consequences for their actions. They can kill or maim as many digital people they want, whereas fucking with someone in real life would get them killed, beaten, or jail time. That's why you get scenarios like Columbine and Sandy Hook.

This is total bullshit and if anything I think the sense of no consequences would only by amplified hy having a bunch of save files, which is a problem in any game or computer thing period because it teaches that there are no permanent mistakes, which is a bad thing for a teenager to learn. But GTA type violence? Pfft they shoot back and you get a fast game over.

You're mostly correct, but if you can't admit that in some fringe cases games (just like any other life experience) can make people more prone to violence, you're not being objective.

Like I said, games influence is subtle, but it exists, and is not even possible to be evaluated at this moment, because the factors that form personality are so complex and overlapping, and because our knowledge of how minds change is limited.

Other people influence you through media like games. And its not just people that shape who you are but also interaction with animals, plants, inanimate objects, climate, your genes (last but not least) etc.
Everything you experience makes you who you are to a corresponding degree, and most of those things when combined with others can in some cases cause people to be violent. Games are imo particularly powerful because of how strongly they interact with the core of your being, especially in kids.

Of course video games make you violent!

Video games teach you that boxed in dances are significant and meaningful. They teach you that you get closeness and tenderness from accepting rollercoastery obstacle courses centered around being hunched over at a desk or couch. They also leverage a sense of being a "gamer" as a means of getting the spiral into this to snowball more, and to consolidate the market and to reinforce the various cornerstones of it by weaving them with each other.

This consolidated gamer becomes especially easy for others to mark. As a result, this emphasized the position of the gamer as someone unwanted in the real world, which the industry of course loves, their eyes fucking shining with the pupils twisting into hearts with dollar signs in the middle over this.

Additionally, to be able to continue to notice the existance of the real world while having so much of ones attention and memories filled by video games requires that the real world be conceived of as filth, vileness and monsters. This allows maintaining internalized notions of good and evil while all these ever more powerful games inscribe themselves into their subjects minds as chuncks of concentrated good. This allows gamers to actually have opinions about the real world, in spite of not really caring for it, which they generally form by sharing them between each other, and borrowing them from pundits that speak the familiar language of the combat memes that are familiar to them.

The biggest catalyst for this has been the lacing of games with story and cinematic ambiency. Although this isn't story in a normal sense, it's not that more story makes this worse, or that story is even a big part of games. Rather, the real bullet here is the existance of a particular dose and form of story in video games, ie. generally just enough that story is the one aspect of a game that the players will remain conscious of afterwards, in spite of it being weak. This is done by means of the craft of delivering the story in a maximally emotive, cinematic way.

Once this habbit becomes unsustainable, it loses the stabilizing effect of snaring the majority of the subject's attention, and the programmed negative impression of the real world is inevitably acted upon, however weak, even to the point of unnoticibility, most such attempts may be.

Games might not automatically make you into mass shooter, but if you were an evil propagandist bent on changing the world to your benefit, you would salivate at the thought of having people from very small age sit down alone in front of a TV and get totally immersed in a game containing your social engineering experiments for hours on end.

Luckily there's no powerful evil propagandists bent on profit and power through social change so games are completely safe, right guys?

women unironically are treated like children in modern anglo/american society. That's why they can commit crimes and are given slap on the wrist. They can physical assault men and even if they're completely in the wrong, won't be tried for it. Female teachers sleep with underage male students and don't get in trouble. even when they go to court, either charges are dropped or they're given probation. So how are women different from children in America?

It's true, video games make you violent. I played stardew valley and now i delve into caves and old mines to absolute trash the shit out of whatever is in there.

I don't think it's curable so the only solution is to cull all gamers and make video games illegal

The attitude and language so prevalent on this website is evidence of the social decline of our culture itself. It's something I call the "meme culture". It's known in psychology as "groupthink". Monkey see, monkey do.

"There are people making profit off your ignorance."

The earth is 510.1 million km² yet you spend your life in front of a 100 in² screen. Everything you see or read has come from someone else.

Are you aware of your own body? Where are you fingers? Where are your eyes? You can read, you can see, and your language is available, yet are you truly aware of these events occurring and that you are in control of them?

Can you differentiate between your own lived experience and what you've seen on your computer screen?

This is a new problem, never experienced by our civilization before. Don't deny evidence solely on the basis that it is not popularized information. THERE IS NO INFORMATION YET. We are the experiments of this interconnected culture. You are responsible for your decisions.

Get out. Say hello to someone when you walk by them. Read the instruction manual. Read the ingredients list. Learn. There are people making profit off your ignorance.

Sometimes I miss that sweet fruity booty juicy, and I have a look at recieved material again even though I know I shouldn't, and I'm just reenforcing the signal strength of flawlessly dysfunctional desire.

There actually is evidence of a link, and it doesn't matter if the violence is hyper-realistic OR as simplistic as whack-a-mole, the effect is still relatively the same. It's a reward scenario for participating in violent acts.

gamers get so violently frothy and defensive when someone implies the source of their violent tendencies comes from witnessing violence over and over again and desensitizing to them... why is this?

No, the REEEEEE and the “no” are usually in the same post. It is people who say nothing bad can ever come from videogames who exhibit the worst symptoms of video game addiction/overuse.

I mean I understand you want to prove me wrong and make me look stupid, but I’ve been to these threads. I tried posting reasonably. I literally had a drunk gamer scream at me aggressively and call what i said bait while proving my point.

I kind of feel like I have no right to talk about video games since I only ever had a gamecube and a wii and I barely used the wii and haven't used the gamecube regularly since middleschool. I was playing like super mario sunshine and LoZ:the windwaker. The most violent game I ever played was probably just some shitty metroid game on the wii where I killed aliens.

That said, I tend to believe that video games provide outlets for violent impulses which helps control them. I think the danger it can cause is in enabling people to become socially isolated. Not everyone plays video games with friends, some use virtual interaction as a substitute for real interactions and that's never good because that makes people depressed, and if they've turned to video games because they've been mistreated in the real world they can probably harbor a lot of anger at the real world. Then you have a situation where depressed people who hate the world are going through simulations of killing people all day. It's only going to feed their anger if they connect what they're doing in game to a fantasy of revenge in real life. The games will provide the outlet for the violent urges, but the violent urges will rise and rise, and if forced into a situation where the games can no longer compensate, they might snap. It's not good that lots of these people also turn to internet communities like the future where they become radicalized and learn to do nothing but hate all day every day.

We've already had cases where people have snapped and gone on mass killing sprees because their anger completely consumed them and then we see in their social media memes from the future. Like at least three now I remember. There are probably a lot of powder kegs just waiting to go off. Video games may be a factor when people snap and murder people, but it's only one among many.

Thanks for your thoughtful post.

Video games aren't "the" cause of acted aggression, but I do believe it is a factor.

Exactly as you said, everything from a person's life experience affects. The video game creates a reciprocal loop perpetuating symptoms of depression and manic behaviours. The images repeated endlessly become part of the person's pysche, their daily activity and begins to envelope their reality. >>4828381

Kain said earlier "It's a reward scenario for participating in violent acts." That really simplifies the question OP asked. I believe this is the answer to OP's actual question. >>4828293

I think you got the causality backwards OP
attraction to violence and whatnot is a symptom, I don't claim it's a new thing necessarily though.
But like just a few days ago I was perusing the read-it, and there was a post like "what's the best photo in human history" and I scrolled a bit and by a HUGE majority, almost everything was dark, dismal, horrific, etc. sort of theme. War, genocide, extreme poverty, suicide, other kinds of death, ... That's what everyone is looking at and treasuring.
Well, same with videogames. Probably same with watching some lions devour cultists down at the colosseum.

I've definitely won a fist fight just copying moves from Metal Gear Solid. To be fair he was bigger than me but was drunk.

I think games have made me more violent but more moral. Like, I "want to be the hero" more than I would otherwise.
