I think this is quite a complex issue. I would argue that violence is games is extremely graphic, and fairly realistic, but the response of the gamer to these scenes is more important than deciding whether they’re graphic or not. If the gamer is comfortable with the content, and it isn’t having a negative impact on them beyond the game, I’m not sure that it’s ‘too’ anything.

While I don’t think violence in video games causes violence, I think becoming accustomed to that level of graphic violence/gore, especially underage, is detrimental to the development of empathy, and I think that contributes to ‘toxic gamer culture’.
