Eighth grade students at Harris Middle School were asked if they played video games and if they thought violent games caused more violent behavior in young people.
No. Yes, they get used to videos like that and when it comes to real life, it is stuck in their heads.
A few. It might, but I think it depends on the person.
No. No, it’s just a game.
No. No, some kids just do it for fun.

No. I believe that the games do cause kids to be violent.
No. No, I don’t think it affects them.

Yes. A little bit. Usually when you play games, your mind set gets used to it. If you’ve been playing and come off that, your mind set is still on the game.
Sometimes. Yes, because when you’re playing it makes you think that stuff is ok and if you’re addicted to it, it makes you think it’s ok in real life.
Yes. Yes, it can teach kids the wrong decisions.
