I was just wondering what the consensus was on video games among catholics. I happened upon a great article on the issue here that I recommend people read.
So, if you're a family, do you let your kids play video games? Ought grown Catholic men to play video games? Ought grown Catholic men who have families of which they need to focus on being the head?
What are your thoughts?
Violent video games are destroying people's minds. These point and shoot games were designed by military people in Britain to help lower a soldier's resistance to picking up a gun and firing it at another human being. Then they figured, hey, we don't even have to begin training psychotic murderers ourselves. We can just mass produce these "games" and give them to kids. Then all we have to do is show them how to operate the real hardware of a machine gun and we've got our raw meat.
Give your kids something more creative to do, like playing a musical instrument or singing in a chorus. Those are better ways to socialize with other kids than having them sit around a TV pretending to kill each other over and over again.
