As policy makers debate President Obama's gun control proposals, some have also begun to question the role of violent video games in shootings. The perpetrators of mass shootings, including the Columbine and the Sandy Hook school massacres, reportedly played violent video games, prompting some to call for more regulations of these games. What do the makers of these video games think?
Electronic Arts Inc., Epic Games Inc. and the Valve Corporation declined our requests to interview one of their game developers. The International Game Developers Association agreed to set up an interview with a developer, Daniel Greenberg, but only via email.
Greenberg (pictured above), who participated in the design and writing of the first-person shooter Electronic Arts game Crysis, wrote us why he doesn't think imaginary violence in video games is responsible for real-world violence. (Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza has not been reported to have had any connection to that game.) AOL Jobs has condensed and edited the email.
