Example: imagine this scene - a soldier creeping through a forest, suddenly an enemy jumps out you get shot, blowing you to bits.
The child/adolescent knows it is not real, however their brain experiences it as though it were real. Whenever they see or are in a forest, the scene might come to mind, or they might experience feelings of stress they can't explain. Anxiety, irritableness, anger, unwanted images, stress. It comes down to brain the hell does anyone care about the violence in video games or media.
We make such a big deal over guns but guns don't really kill people. I think watching violence helps stress the setting when something looks dangerous.
I think it's just how raised and educated we are when on how much bad violence is.
I think that's what pretty much we think when it comes to violence.
It's maybe just best for kids to resolve conflict through empathy, compassion, and self-control. Violence is usually replaced with justice and victor. However, in action movies, kids don't normally pay attention to the violence but all the excitement behind it.
Yeah, you gotta decide whether the violence is justified by the story or such.
For example, Star Wars does feature a lot of violence, but the fighting is obviously justified; the Empire is completely malicious, and the fighting is entirely bloodless. Seriously, not once have any of the Clones and Droids lain their arms aside to talk about their differences.
