TALK BACK: do video games desensitize to violence?

CNN recently did an expose about our society's lack of sensitivity to violence. There have been many recent stories about people standing by as someone was hurt, and doing nothing. Some experts blame video games - which create a reality where people are killed, and then get back up. Some even say that video games create an excitement in relation to violence. In California, there is a bill in the courts to ban the sale of violent video games to minors, which has many people in an uproar.

What is your take on video games? Is it harmless fun, or harmful? Do you have boundaries about the games your children play? Is there death involved in any of the games in your house?
