Re: Sex, Lies and Video Games
one thing that comes to mind is that in a movie the outcome is more or less controlled, when someone is murdered, the murderer is brought to justice, etc, therefore promoting the idea that murder is bad. in a game like GTA when you can blow up tons of people with an RPG and then run away and be fine, and control your own destiny, that promotes the idea that it's more or less ok.
also i think the control factor plays a major part. when you're reacting to a situation rather than controlling it, i think you're view is different.
