Some 'violent' computer games I'm okay with, because they are clearly fantasy. The situations would never come up in real life.

Others I have a HUGE problem with, specifically ones like grand teft auto which encourage and normalise violence against other people, use of weapons to gain power, misogyny etc. NOT okay, and I would never let a hypothetical future child of mine play them under any circumstances, particularly boys.

The sort of people who moan about things like this tend to be tossers of epic proportion.
