One thing that Galloway touches on in chapter three but does not speak much about is the “Columbine Theory” which states that “games plus gore equals psychotic behavior”. I have to agree with him that this is a flawed theory. For me this takes me back to the idea of gaming addiction. In my opinion, people do not get addicted to a game because the game makes them become addicted to it, they become addicted to the game rather because of something in their personal life that causes them to become addicted to the game as someone becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol. Sticking to this idea, if someone were to play a video game and then go kill a bunch of people, they did not perform this act because they played the video game. They did it because of something going on within their lives or themselves. Some people may say that violence in video games can still have a negative effect on children. I would not disagree to this but that does not mean that if a kid plays a violent video game he is going to begin acting “psychotic”.
