I'm going to make an un-equivocal statement; watching Pornography does infinity more harm to children than playing violent video games. I was going to post a whole load statics from studies related to aggression and video games, and also studies on the effects of Pornography. However in the Times this week was an extract of a book about today's young women which will make my point far more effectively;

It's long, but worth the read.

Depending on the game, I'd say they are about the same. For instance, KOTOR, battlefront, ect. have violence, but is different than BEING violent. Most M rated games have stuff like murdering and sex and stuff, but some M games like HALO oe WHDOW don't. So, basicly what I'm saying is is that it depends on the game. SOme games like GTA and and FABLE have a mixture of that as well as violence, thats why I don't play those type of games. Any other opinions?

I've seen both happen. I know a couple kids who are obsessed with porn, and cant stop thinking about it. Their personality has completely changed. Although, M games can be damaging too. Cursed Internet
