I was watching SVU tonight and it was the one where someone imitated a violent video game. It got me thinking: Where do you stand on violent video games? To me, it's only a problem if the violence is realistic and imitatable. So, I would have a problem with Grand Theft Auto. But not so much with Mortal Kombat. Also, it's a problem if the violence is done in the 'first person' sense, or if there seems to be no purpose to the violence. There's a difference between Grand Theft Auto where the main character doesn't have a name and the Scarface game or Tomb Raider. (In the Scarface game, you're playing as Tony Montana and in the Tomb Raider games, you're playing as Lara Croft.) As with any game, movie or tv show, I think parents need to talk with their children and tell them that video games aren't real and that it's not okay to imitate them.
