This paper discusses the permissive messages within specific video games which promote and encourage violence.

From the Paper:

"Given the nature of children and given the nature of adults we can imagine although we have no direct evidence for it that parents worried over the effect of such violent tales as the Iliad and the Odyssey on their children. While a great deal has changed in the millennia that has passed since Homer composed those timeless tales one thing that has not changed is that parents still worry about the effects of being exposed to violence either real or fictitious."
