Australian Advocate: Violent Games Will Turn Troubled Kids into “Lethal Killers”

The national spokeswoman for the Australian Family Association told ABC.net that violent video games can make existing mental health problems worse in teenagers – much worse.

Angela Conway said:

If there are problems with that young person already, then this technology will turn them into a lethal killer.

Conway’s comments came as Australian officials gather in Adelaide to discuss adding a new R18+ rating for games. Currently, games with content exceeding the MA15+ level are banned in Australia. 

The Melbourne Herald-Sun has more on the current political debate over games Down Under.
