Although violent video games have violent actions in them, teenagers should be able to play violent video games because there isn’t enough evidence to prove they make teens more aggressive, it could prevent violence, and violent video games are a fun and relaxing way to relieve stress and anger.
Why does this have to be a news slant case? Does #BlackLivesMatter need to be a violent protest? Why can’t police stop killing these victims and just punish them in other ways?
