Violent Video Games
Video games are games played by manipulating images generated by a computer program or other electronic display device. There are many types of video games that one can indulge in. They include puzzles, adventure, action, races among others. In the US about 97 percent of children, both boys and girls, of the age between 8-18 years are conversant with these video games and it is estimated that they spend 7-8 hours in a day in entertainment media which includes playing video games. With the development in technology, video games have become accessible on the internet, video game shops, mobile phones, and generally the media. In the recent times video game developers have come up with games that promote violence, and some of these games end up in the hands of minors who end up emulating the games in real life. Such interaction with violent video games among the teenagers has had an adverse impact on their behavior. The video game designers can be regarded as individuals who are after profits and are not worried of the negative influence such games have on their audience and especially the young population. They, therefore, put their self-interest before the welfare of the community. This paper seeks to analyze the adverse impacts of violent video games using care of ethics theory as the basis for the argument. To do this, the paper will look at the basics of care ethics and how the theory applies in violent video games as well as objections that are likely to be made on this line of thought.
