In saying that... You join the Military knowing/hoping that the support exists in the event you may get PTSD.

Video games is a relatively new field though, so the support for workers being exposed to questionable content simply doesn't exist yet... Where-as the Military has had centuries to build the appropriate frameworks to support it's workers, same with other fields.

What would this support be for exactly? Help people who've seen violent media?

I mean graphic violent entertainment or media in general has existed for a fairly long time. If you're the type of person that's really affected by these types of images, the solution is simply don't expose yourself to it.

I mean I really hate looking at shit and vomit. So I just avoided being a janitor. But I could do that job and accuse my employer of doing horrible things, like cleaning up shit and vomit.

Depends on the severity. But counseling is a good place to start.

The issue is... And this is something I have witnessed in person being in the emergency services... You don't know if someone will be affected by something like this until.. Well. They are affected by it. - People can go decades seeing horrible stuff and eventually just break almost at random, you cannot predict it. Seriously.

We aren't just talking about computer generated images here either you know, these people are seeing some horrific stuff in the name of "research" for our entertainment.
Give them some support... It doesn't have to be expensive, time consuming or whatever... Just someone they can talk to and refer them to other support services.
