US Senator Says Games Are ‘Simulators’ to Practice Violence

US Senator Says Games Are ‘Simulators’ to Practice Violence

California senator Dianne Feinstein is once again laying blame of violence among teens on videogames, saying that these games can “enable” individuals who might become violent.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Feinstein said:

I think the really violent video game becomes a kind of simulator to practice on. It enables the individual to become much more familiar with that depiction of death and blood. Of course it’s not the way it is in real life.

Last week, Feinstein said games have “a very negative influence” on young people and suggested that Congress should act on the matter.
