do they contribute to youth violence

Do violent video games contribute to youth violence ?

It an issue becuase many children ages 7+ own a violent video game and play it all the time and it causes for children to get in trouble, sent to juvenile detention, use or even think of using a weapon.                 
PROS 1.(increases reports of bullying can be partially attributed.)2.(video games often reward players for simulating violence.)3.(playing violen video games  increases aggresive behavior)
CONS 1.(violent juvenile crime in the united states has been declining as violent video game popularity has increased.)2.(playing violent video games reduces violence in adolescent boys by serving as a subtitute for rough tumble play.) game players understand they are playing a game . there ability to distinguish bewtween fantasy and reality prevents them for emulating video game violence in real life.)

violent video games have been blamed for school shootings, increases in bullying , and violence towards woman. Critics argue that these games desensitize players to violence , teach children that violence is an acceptable way to resolve conflicts, players get rewarded for simulating violence.
