‘Do video games create violence in people?’. By Abbie Walker 12/9/11. My views on violent video games.
By Abbie Walker
Early types of games :
This was one of the first games that came out. This game called Ping Pong is 1 or 2 players playing against each other to score points. As you can see this game is not violent. This came out in 1972.
This is called Pac Man and came out in 1980 and was one of this first video games in which you need to collect all the yellow dots without getting eaten.
As you can see this types of games are none violent as they only had the technology to make games with black and white and colour.
Mario is a fun family game which involves
Lots of different levels in which you collect
For money. There is all different kinds of Mario games
Such as donkey Kong or Mario kart which are also Muti-player
Or family games.
These games have clips of violence but as they are cartoon and not very life like they are more funny than serious.
Sonic is a game which is made up of levels where you need to collect little gold rings to reach the next stage. There is also racing games which more family based.
Call of Duty is a third person game which
Is meant to be set in WW2 time. In this
Game imagery and graphics have improved dramatically
Since the one of the first games in 1972. The
graphics are much more realistic that are more like
Grand Theft Auto is driving game where you
Can shoot and run over people, driving fast cars.
This game also involves swearing and lots of
Violence and breaking the law. The game seems like
Real life which makes people get involved more.
Since one of the first games in 1972 the sound
has dramatically changed and has become more realistic.
Imagery and graphics have become more lifelike, this
May make people take the violence which is shown in these
Games in into the real world.
This video is of Gun Fight which came out in 1975. This is a arcade game and is played by 1 Player. In the game you have to shoot the other player to win. As you can see this game has very basic detail and the graphics are not that good. Also the game didn’t have very good graphics because the technology wasn’t very good and wasn’t very evolved then.
This video is of Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 launch trailer. In the game trailer the graphic realistic unlike Gun fight which is very basic. In COD the detail is much better and the sound effects are more life like.
In Gun Fight now we would properly find it funny because of our games now. Because the games now are more life like than before people will play them more and it would have a bigger effect on people than it did back in 1975
I asked a couple of questionnaires and most of
The results came out to show that most males
Play violent video games and are 16 and older.
I also found out by them that most people do
get frustrated while playing them but do not
Carry that on after stopping playing them. Most
People also said that while people do
Sometimes get violent over playing them but
Most said it depends on the person, also most
18+ games were played buy people that were
