Younger children learn via imitation, therefore they would learn how to be violent and that would be a negative effect. The reason video games and television shows have ratings for "18+" is because once you reach a certain age, your psychological development changes to become less of a "learn via imitation" to more of a "learn by morals w/ experience." Therefore, the effects could be negative OR positive. Video games have been proven to allow one to relax and expand their minds. It is true, though, that certain video games have values that make you want to sock someone in the face, but that's why one must have developed morals to counter that. Television: as long as you know it's fake, you're all good. Same with movies. The effect changes by what state of mind you're in. Therefore, it is impossible to tell whether or not there is a positive or negative social effect on society.

It definitely has a negative effect on society. Seeing a lot of blood and violence desensitizes the viewer to such and increases the likelihood of them being able to hurt someone as they've seen.

It's scientifically proven that people are affected negatively by being exposed to violence, so there's that - as media is full of it now, it does indeed influence society in a negative way.

Violence in the media only negatively affects those with weak minds. Any normal person should be able to seperate reality from fiction - it's quite simple, really.

So being influenced by a video game means you're not a normal person?

Please, define normal in this instance

You’re not deep. You’re not an intellectual. You’re not an artist. You’re not a critic. You’re not a poet. You just have internet access.

If in doubt, Google.

If a fictional game makes you go out and kill people - then yes, you are not a normal person. It's that simple really.

Yes, especially for kids who don't know who they are yet. They will fall in love with the game and act like the character.

I don't think so but if you are influenced by a video game or movie then it's clearly a problem.

No.  The media keeps trying to push that video game/movie violence effects kids and how they will grow up.  But when have you ever heard of a killer who "played to many violent video games or watched violent movies? 
actually a few killers did developed over the years because of violent video games and movies so it's pretty much effecting our society very much
