Engrave this Quote The impact of violent video games upon children is not as clearly established as the impact of violent television programming. Young children possess an instinctive desire to imitate actions they observe, without always possessing the intellect or maturity to determine if such actions are appropriate. Due to their role-modeling capacity to promote real world violence, there is deep concern that playing violent video games, with their fully digitized human images, will cause children to become more aggressive toward other children and become more tolerant of, and more likely to engage in, real-life violence.
-Robert E. McAfee, MD., In testimony before House Energy and Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Telecommunications and Finance in June 1994. Tell a Friend
