If your children love video games, chances are they are playing a game called Fortnite and it has parents and experts alarmed. This online survival game has kids and teens competing to kill each other on screen and desensitising them to violence. Fortnite has been described as gory and the aim of the game is to kill everyone and be the last person standing. The widespread playing of Fortnite has gotten many experts worried about our children and the future of our society. While our children are playing Fortntie they are being exposed to high levels, this violence desensitises our children's perception of doing harm to others and ultimately normalises violence in our children. How would you feel if your child was being physical abused at school or anywhere that is out of your control, you would feel helpless since you can't help your child. Now, how would you feel, if you found out this violence was the cause of an online video game that promotes violence, you would feel disgusted that the worlds governments and parents allow their children to play video games that horribly influence their children. Think of all the mass violence that has occurred in recent years, there has been a 900% increase in violence conducted by minors from 2000- 2015 compared violence conducted by minors from 1984-1999. This sharp increase can be attributed to the violence that our children absorb in video games. Now a video game that is more mainstream than ever before is pulling in over 30 million players has the potential to influence millions of more children to conduct violence, we must call upon our Government to ban Fortnite unless we want our children to be the next generation of violent convicts.
