While there is very little actual proof that violent video games cause kids to be aggressive, the stereotype still exists. Here we have an out-of-control gamer that gets so fed up he breaks his monitor. So what violent video game was he playing? Halo? Grand Theft Auto?
How about Dance Dance Revolution…
DDR, when played correctly with friends can be extremely enjoyable. This kid, however, obviously takes the game way too seriously. In fact, he’s modified it so that he can play the game on a keyboard rather than with the dance pad (way to suck out the fun).
What makes this video even more shocking is the footage we see after he breaks his monitor. When he pans around his room, we see that the walls are littered with holes from his other freak-outs.
When you start slamming your head into walls because of video games, I think it’s time to sign up for anger management.
