How is our perception of good and evil shaped by our films, books, and video games?

I think that entertainment such as tv shows, music and such has a great contribution to today's perception of what's good and bad. Your thoughts?

Not sure on great contribution, though there definitely is some. I'd weigh personal experiences and maybe news/current affairs consumption as being a higher factor.

to be honest, i read a lot of books and a variety of genres- that id like to think- i think it has made me be more open overall. to contrast since im a teenager the news when i was younger was never as interesting and i only just started to actually like reading them and catching up on the world. since i love reading and also interested in some tv series and films it shows me that the world isnt just generally classed as good and evil. when i was younger i had a clear view of what was right and not but now i know the world isnt just black and white and there are a lot of grey areas that exist in the world. i guess it has shaped me to be who i am and far more mature. i guess you could call me a nerd but i was really naive when i was younger and looking back i feel like ive definitely grown. its weird how these forms of media are the reason why but maybe its also because of that that i have grown to have a bigger empathy and understanding.
