Do you think The United States of America should ban 'aggressive or violent' video games like Belgium, Holland and Germany have?

You all wanted the government to get involved, now lie in the bed you made.

Update:

'Aggressive or violent' video games don't lead to violence however loot boxes lead to gambling addiction, the gaming communities logic is amazing.

    Belgium & Holland didn't banned a video games because of violence, so I dunno why you bring those 2 countries up. If anything, Australia was the most notorious country for these kind of things, where they banned most of games that contains excessive violence/sexual contents, or even having drugs in it.

    And why you Americans were obsessed in banning video games, where the problem lies on easy access to guns.

    Stop selling guns at Walmarts and implement a tighter gun control, where every person that owns a gun must report to the government each month. Also, they need to be at least 10 years in the army before they're eligible in possesing firearms.

    If you're not agree with tight gun controls, then you're also part of the problem.

      You ARE NOT taking, restricting, or creating ANY more gun control laws at all for American's guns, no matter what you do or say. You won't last long if you try.

    Personally I think members of parliament and Civil servants should have their pay docked when caught on camera playing any video game, violent or not.

    What are you talking about? You can play the new Wolfenstine games in Germany. Only in Germany due to their ban on all Nazi related content. The game doesn't have any Nazi symbols and instead of the main antagonist being the Nazis, they are called "The Order". Ironically though, in the German Version the scene with Hitler is still in the game.

      Germany dropped their ban on Nazi imagery in games in 2018. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45142651 Which means that the new game Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be uncensored. https://www.polygon.com/2019/6/27/18759799/wolfenstein-youngblood-uncensored-release-germany-cyberpilot-nazi

    Of course not since there is absolutely no research to indicate that there's any connection between violent video games and mass shootings.

    I believe the people who create games are fully competent in their duties and I also believe consumers will purchase what they want. In addition, by the government regulating video games would be a direct violation of the Bill of Rights and Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states that “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”(The Universal Declaration of Human Rights). Moreover, instead of allowing the government to regulate the video games, we should hold the parents accountable for maintaining the video games. There are many other options that we as a nation can select from, but we cannot allow the government to be involved. Government has no role in regulating content in a society of protected speech and marketplace of ideas (Liptak, The New York Times). Individual parents should decide, not government censors, what is appropriate for their children. If we allow the government to be involved in the entertainment industry, this would be the first step of regulating many content that goes out to society (Wilson, Parents Not Government Needed to Monitor Video Games)..
