    When my nephew was a kid (he's 25 now), my sister (she's pretty strict) wouldn't allow him to play GTA, or even any first person shooters. Whenever he came over to hang with me, I let him play all those games. :)

    Did you ever ask him if he ever came over because he liked your company or because of your games?

    He came over because he liked learning about, working on and and helpin' me pimp the boulevard in my cars. But yeah, I let him listen to music with nasty lyrics, and play those evil games too. I had a strict dad, so I knew what it was like (but my sister had the same dad, so go figure). :)

    I don’t understand not allowing video games like that. But I guess if you’re from a generation that didn’t play them, maybe they sound worse than they are. Also having a son might make someone overprotective with violence I guess. Idk

    I think that it is superstition about it corrupting young kids and youths.

    Yeah I agree. Just because I run over hookers in GTA doesn’t mean I would ever do it irl.

    She didn't let us do whatever we wanted, but she was more lenient.

    I trusted that he knew the difference between fantasy and reality (he was a teen), and I knew he would feel left out when all his friends were talking about these games and music and he hadn't experienced them. That's a bad feeling when you're a teen.

    I read somewhere that in the military, they prefer psychopaths because they don't have empathy and sympathy, so much so that they are highly sought after for those positions.

    I don't know. In America, the older generation usually don't like what the next generation is into. In the 60's, it was Elvis with his hips and the popularity of recreational drugs and maybe today it is violent video games and movies.

    I hate it when I hear someone my age say kids today are messed up, I'm like, "kids are the same as they've always been...we were just as bad if not worse, if you'll think back and remember honestly." :)

    Yep, it was so bad when I was a kid, what with our rock and/or roll, our long hair, and reefers...we would be the downfall of society for sure. Now these same people who were criticized so heavily as kids are doing the same thing to the next generation(s)...I'm happy I see it for the nonsense it is.

    Would that be the same for surgeons? Since they have to be comfortable with cutting up people.

    I once dated a guy who was on his way to becoming a surgeon. He was definitely a psychopath.

    Oh wait tho, I just realized that I’ve cut people up too. But they were dead so is that different?
