And correlation is not causation.  If there is a correlation between violent behavior and violent video gaming, I think it's more likely that violent people like violent video games, not that violent video games make people violent.
Quoted for truth.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

By the way, *I* don't eat bread.  I definitely have not eaten any bread in the last six months, and it's even possible that I haven't eaten bread in the past year (I can't be sure because it's not the kind of thing I keep track of).  I eat rice instead.

For the sake of argument, would you state whether or not you have been acting out violently within the last six months, or possibly within the past year?

Generally I have not been acting violently.  For that matter, most people around here don't eat much bread (rice is much more popular), and the violent crime rate is quite low.  Hmmm ... maybe there really is a connection between eating bread and violence :P

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we just won our first case.  ;D

Those Supreme Court folks should play through the Dragon Age games.  I'm sure they would just love that.

Some friends and I were debating whether or not we should make a skit that pokes fun of the bloody gore in the Dragon Age games. We were going to have someone step on a bug, and then have blood splattered all over his face. Amazing how far they took that mechanic.
