    Or an entertainment likely to attract those who already think and feel in those terms?

    I'm not sure how we would tell the difference.

      Obviously the almost complete majority of people who play a nasty game like Grand Theft Auto don't commit crimes, or at least I guess that to be true.

      But is playing such a game, especially obsessively, more likely to make a very disturbed and angry person more likely to be violent?  I think so.

      But as you say, I don't know how one might prove that.  I've been reading on this a bit the last few days, and I'm not impressed by any of the studies I've seen.  

      I do very certainly think it's an issue worth study.
