I do think there's a certain lack of respect for other people. I think of it more in terms of people posting youtube videos of people getting beat up, hit by cars, getting seriously injured, etc. I would be much more concerned if I found out my kid was watching videos of someone being actually injured than I would be if he was playing a first person shooter.
I totally agree with you about the lack of respect I think that is a huge issue in this day and age.

I will add I am not one to decry video games, rock music etc as bad influences but at the same time I am starting to come around to the thinking that maybe some of these games are desensitizing to people because they are so realistic in nature.
