I don't think violent video games create violent kids anymore than watching the Road Runner makes one go out and buy an ACME anvil and drop it on someone's head.
They started showing the olde Looney Toons on Cartoon Network, so out of pure nostalgia I watch the hell out of it. However, once in a while they'll show a cartoon that I absolutely LOVED as a kid, so I have it memorized, and I notice they edit out certain scenes that weren't censored before. Like the one where Daffy and Bugs are competing for applause from the audience, and at the end Daffy blows himself up. Bugs admits he can never top that, and Daffy laments that he can only do it once. Completely gone. What gets me is that while scenes like that are being removed, Seth MacFarlane goes out of his way to put more
violence and blood in Family Guy episodes, which do get aired in, what appears, their entirety.
What, blowing yourself up on a TNT rigged xylophone is too realistic, but running over someone with a lawn mower in a gory mess isn't?
I'd say it has something to do with time slot. Stupid reason in the end.
