  Violent computer games aren't that bad
Updated 09 May 2002, 09.18

Emily from Horsforth says that kids know the difference between violence in computer games and in reality.

"I don't see why the media are so bothered about violent computer games.

I admit that the games involving drugs are wrong as drugs can seriously damage your health.

Games aren't real

Most kids are sensible enough to understand the difference between games and reality.

I know that most adults think that the more violence a computer contains, the more wrong it encourages you to do.

Never happen

But the point I'm making is that the more violent a game is, the more unrealistic it appears to be.

Most kids end up thinking that it would never happen."

Emily, 11, Horsforth
