    My guess it would be a Fe vs Te thing. Because with Te, Fi gets suppressed and Te isn't exactly the nicest function to be around in its pure form.

    I believe it. Subconsiously, people tend to fantasize about very dark things, and these games gets that darkness more to the surface. I wouldn't play them, myself, but I don't think they turn people into violent assaulters unless they lack the inhibition to do it in the first place.
