This controversy may just be solved with the help of some research.
Violent video games makes teens think violence is acceptable in problem solving. Teens usually play and use violence to solve any crime or any wrong business that might of have had gone wrong during any dealing of some sort. Playing “Grand Theft Auto” is the greatest example in which you go and use your fists or weapons of any kind ,and instead of peacefully resolving problems out peacefully it goes up to solving their problems with violence.
