I don't think one should ban violent videogames: they don't make people go out and kill others. It's the scapegoat. Just because I play violent video games or watch violent film doesn't mean I'm going to out and start killing people.
The people who do that have more mental issues to begin with than mere videogames.
What one should do, if they are sensitive, is to watch the games your kids play. If you don't want them to play violent videogames: then you better do your job as a parent.
Also, the funny thing with violence is whatever we see as violent today might not be violent tomorrow. I mean, Gone of the wind was so controversial because it said Damn. Now we wouldn't even blink at that word.
