It's a controversial topic, but there's no argument that violent video games sell.

People lined up at midnight Tuesday to get their hands on the latest installment in the Grand Theft Auto series, which is expected to sell 20-to-25 million units worldwide.

Two experts who feel very differently on the issue joined News 8 at 4 to share their opinions.

Patrick Scott Patterson is a long-time gamer who writes video game reviews and will be featured in the upcoming documentary "The NES Club." Dr. Wendy Middlemiss is an associate professor of educational psychology at the University of North Texas.
