I don't think it's ever been hard (technically speaking) to kill someone. Living with yourself, or getting away with it are harder than the game portrays, I think.

Actually getting healthier after sex with a hooker, on the other hand, is in direct opposition to the laws that govern reality.

I've been playing shoot-em-ups on my PC since "Castle Wolfenstein" (the 1st 3D one) and even before that on my Commodore. Now, I've got to admit, if I had a BFG9000 I'd use it from time to time and I <<HAVE>> had some urges to do away with cabbies (being a biker in a big city) but, to date the closest I've come is with some of the comments made here.

If 9M instances of an occurrence produce X results and 1 instance produces Y results then it should be quite obvious that the Y result was NOT a result of the occurrence in question.
