Saying that video games cause behavior problems means that "kids who play violent video games HAVE behavior problems". So, no. Some kids have behavior problems. These kids with behavior problems may also play video games. Kids have had behavior problems way before video games were around. Should you blame comic books, tv programs, music, or even classic violent literature? Nope. A rational person (i.e. a person without behavior problems) of any age is perfectly capable of understanding that video games have no consequences and real violent behavior does.

These days, video game animations are much more realistic than before (compare Battlefield 4 and Doom). Countless hours are spent programming the graphics to these three-dimensional games. Young people, who are the primary market for video games, can be quite impressionable. Violent R-rated movies are not advisable for young people, and violent video games have the same content.
