IMHO, it has little to do with video games or movies. The problem lies when there is nothing from the parents to counter the influence. It lies with parents that put zero restrictions on what movies they watch, what games they play (one that I've played has more F-words than an entire season of The Sopranos) and what they're doing on the internet. Many of us grew up watching Westerns, some of the most violent movies ever made. However, we also grew up with parents that disciplined us and taught us right from wrong. This ALL boils down to parental responsibility. Parents are less and less responsible at a time when they need to be the most responsible at any time in history.
