I have played videogames since I was 5 years old. I read a ****ton of books and watch a ridiculous amount of movies. The most gut wrenching thing I have ever seen on television was 9/11. Games, movies and books have violence, but there is a distinct division between fake violence and the real thing. No amount of fatalities in mortal kombat could numb the real thing.

I agree totally. But I still wouldn't let me 8 year old play Grand Theft Auto. I still wouldn't let my 8 year old watch uber-violent, gory movies.

Maybe when she turns 9......
