Guitar just takes a lot of practice and everyone has to adapt to it a little. I don't read notes so I learn by ear. That's hard for some people and others might prefer notes. I have longer fingers too so it's a little bit easier. I am by no means a great guitar player but I can play a few songs here and there.

Also there's no problem with picking a videogame over guitar. Playing a guitar is fun and all but if you have more interest in playing videogames then you will probably have more entertainment playing them instead. Why is GTA such a good game XD. I'm addicted to it too, I have it on all my systems. Something about blowing anyone and everything up is just so much fun lol.

I think that videogames with their content aren't handled properly when it comes to children. I think that every parent should be able to know what kind of content their children will be able to handle but some parents just don't seem to care about what their kids are doing at all. Violent videogames don't always culture a normal child into being a violent adult but they have been influences in some situations that could have probably been prevented if the children's content was restricted to things that they were mature enough for. I wrote a very very long paper on this last year for my sociology class and there were plenty of studies I found that proved that it was poor content management that made people more aggressive.

The human mind can grow used to any repetitive condition given enough time to accept the condition as normal. You can see this throughout history where what we consider low-grade gore from 40 years ago to be nothing that moves us whereas society 40 years ago was in shock by what little Hollywood has to offer. Today people aren't scared of the old films that our parents and grandparents had nightmares over. We aren't impressed or shaken unless what we see is real enough to be believable.

Now, if you were to let your kid start playing videogames at a young age and they only played games like "gears of war" , a game where you can chainsaw enemies in half, or "call of Duty" , a game that centers around killing others for entertainment (but that's the majority of games these days anyway), they will over time become numb to the violence that they are allowed to experience. They become okay with the actions that they perform in videogames and it does carry over to how they handle things in real life. It doesn't necessarily mean that a kid is going to get up off the couch and go randomly shoot up his neighbors but if the child was in the heat of the moment, he or she would be more likely assault another person who they were angry at. The exact outcomes do vary. Some kids use their fists, others bring daddy's gun to school. It doesn't necessarily have to be videogames that does this either. Playing competitive sports, watching violent TV, hunting and fishing, etc. From the studies I've read violence does breed violence.

Now you know for a fact that you can handle playing GTA. It's fun to rob liquor stores and cause large murderous explosions, but your mature enough to realize the difference between what's real and not real. Young kids have a slight problem with this because they don't always fully understand the difference. The content on videogames should definitely be restricted accordingly by law to varying age groups because leaving your kids to freely explore what's available isn't healthy for their brains. Parents that are caught letting their kids play games that they shouldn't should be punished appropriately but I've yet to come up with a proper punishment suitable for such a semi-petty come that can potentially harm their children or even others. For now I just suggest that parents pay attention to what their children are doing and be sure as possible that they can handle the content they are given.

For a peaceful world and environment we may ban violent video games for a healthy society we may ban junk food that goes to a totalitarian society freedom is important and must be balanced I don't know still children playing so much violent games seems scary we must feed seeds of peace in early ages at schools peaceful philosophies of idealist philosophers must be taught humanity should reach higher standard more welfare must be supplied needless violence must stop sorry if this is a bit ideological in fact I just want a world everyone rich healthy peaceful

Holly Molly I haven'y known that there are GTA players among the visitors of this forum. Yes !
I agree with you about aggression and its connection with video games.In my time I also spent my free time playing football or basketball with other kids.Today kids spend so many time in front of computer,they are to sensitive for some things. But, the parents has changed too. It's easier to play some game on computer and let the kid play it for hours, than simple walk to the park. Today parents work a lot and do not have time for their kids, so the games are the easiest solution. They do not speak with kids, do not educate them so we get a dysfunctional children, children with obesity , and children who will solve the problems with fists instead of dialog.

It's debatable children playing out physical games or they are busy with high tech at home is better both have pros and cons they can fight each other at a match or virtually fight playing a computer game maybe violence isn't all bad society may need it for example when dealing with criminals
