plenty of studies done on traumatizing children with certain themes not suitable for their developmental growth, which ESRB, PEGI, CERO, etc. do not take into account. Caveat parentis. Recall who heeded the creation of these organizations, not what affects specific media invoke on children.
A book can be just as stigmatizing as movie, music, and video game: mutual exclusives. Adults can just be as affected consuming media their psyche cannot handle, it really depends on the maturity of the individual. Regardless, being traumatized by lived experiences occurs many times more than media. E.g Person witness another being killed by another human, animal, or accident. Etc..
I see more cases of kids bullying each other (teachers too) which adversely affect children more than what video games can instill; which the science suggest little affects overall. Raising a child seems to be the most significant component on how a child will grow, even if they play morbid games.
E.g. Parent that teaching their children about violent gruesome games (co-play or not) vs abused children by parents coping by playing violent gruesome games.
