Hey!!! I love video games, and poetry. Neither are stupid! Certain types are, however. Games that shoot people, I hate. I like the strategic games, where you kill something thats gonna destroy the world, but the world is never earth. You know, like Final Fantasy and games like that

I learned how to write from a friend of mine. Sometimes I think the student has surpassed the teacher. :)

This is an interesting question. My wife did a paper in one of her classes. I am am on the fence on this one. Should younger kids be allowed to play games such as hitman, vice city etc no because they are not yet able to separate fantasy from reality. As a older child and as a adult you are able to. I wont say games and media don't influence because they do. As parents and fellow citizens we need to instill values into our children and pay attention to what they injest. I personally question alot of cartoon channel programs then violent games. The armed forces uses certain modifified FPS to help train soldiers. People went after this again after columbine but there were alot more more glaring issues then what music or video games they watched.
