Violence and general lawlessness is a factor, but not the cause. Parental attitudes and predisposition are relay to blame. To compare criminal behaviour 40 years ago to now, and make the connection to gaming, is crazy. There are so many things that have changed in that time. Population growth, stress, and vastly improved news reporting. 40 years ago, it would have to have been a massacre to make national news, now, almost every murder report is accessible worldwide.
