Now I know this myself, because I played viloent games myself when I was younger. It certainly effected me. So I am defo for the AO rating. Also all stores that sell games that are rated for adults to kids should be shut down or fined.
So bring on the Adult rating and stricter laws!
*THIS IS NOT ABOUT TAKING OUT THE VIOLENCE AND SEX OUT OF GAMES. THIS IS ABOUT NOT LETTING KIDS PLAY GAMES THAT THEY ARE NOT THE AGE FOR. JUST BECAUSE YOU MIGHT HAVE TURNED OUT ALRIGHT DOES NOT MEAN THE REST WILL.*

Excause me! I am not uneducated at all. So I will advise you to back off with that type of statement. I also do not have flawed logic at all. Children should not be playing viloent games that are 18+. They are not made for children there for should not be.
This is not about taking the violence out of the games. This is about making sure we dont have kids playing them till they are at least the damn age on the box. As these games do effect them in many ways. Just because you turned out alright does not mean all the rest will.
Also I aint no anti-video-game activist, particularly against violence and sex in video games. I am about making sure children do not play them till they are the age on the damn box. Am tired of hearing about some kid the play a game then killed his granny or some one else he or she knows. Because he or she seen it in a game.
So if you want to let your kids or any other kid play a game at a young age that has you killing, raping etc then on you go. But if they turn out fecked up and violent then thats your fault. Oh and if they kill some one or rape some one later on in life. You should be punished to. Because you let them play something that was not made for them! Which twisted their fragile minds.
Age limits are there for a reason.
Remember this is not about taking violence/sex out of games. This is making sure kids are not playing games that are not made for them! Which can adversly effect them.

here is but a fraction, and i already know you will find flaws in them with your way of logic, but that's alright, there's many more to deflate you
and your logic is indeed flawed, but i guess you gone too far off the reservation to realise it
and yea, next you're gonna find isolated incidents to fit your logic, but the truth is, if you look into them, you'll see there are far more important things that lead to X incident.
to sum it up: You are wrong
Just because someone posted their view, doesn't mean they are uneducated when you don't share it. Never attack someone like that again, that's BS.
You have just gone down in my estimations of being a nice guy Drenus.
On a side note a silly 5 minute google search means nothing, different people and different situations.
Some can easily get violent and unruly through games, due to the competitiveness of them or the content.
Again should I call you uneducated because you think a 5 minute search means its definitely not effective... whats next... remove the Adult rating from movies... cause Movies won't affect how you act right?
As for your silly Have to pay for blood rubbish... that is nonsense.

when he posts a view, that studies, (regardless of 5 minute google search or 5 hour search) outright contradicts this view, it fits perfectly.
and no, its not nonsense about the blood, its a fact that it is missing, and has to be a paid for DLC, thanks to people who thinks everything needs to have a rating
what's that you say?, its perfectly ok that i just mass murderede 2000 desert spearmen, noooo problem, but you want blood?, no way, because it will cause me to go out and kill people, yea, flawed logic if i ever saw any
ratings on movies, same as games, remove them, they serve no purpose, only thing it achives, is getting the kids to watch/use X item, behind their parents backs
and lastly, i just want you to know, my whole day is ruined because your estimates of me went down, yea, not really
This whole age rating on everything society needs to go away, faster the better., it only hurts the kids
edit in responce to OP edit----
your edit doesn't help you, since just because you found 1 kid who acted out, doesn't mean the other 3 billion on the planet will
