They can take that study... And shove it up their ---. :D

See? I put a smiley face, so I can't be aggressive.

Wow, teenagers can be obnoxious, aggressive brats, in other news a new study found that water is actually wet..

I call BS.

Teenagers are naturally aggressive. Fact that they didn't kill anyone or get arrested should be evidence enough that video games helped them tone down their violence. This is just another bogus study.

I was angry long before i played violent games

And I'll be angry long after I stop playing violent games.

What else is new? This is just common sense. Of course some people STILL refuse to believe it. sigh.

Sure it's common sense. Do some research by non-bias soruces and you'll be smacking yourself up your own head when you discover the truth.

The truth, how about any activity that is violent or aggressive in nature will stimulate the areas of the brain that make the person act more aggressively. Like contact sports, hunting ect. Funny how every single one of them isn't on trial for murder, rape, assault ect.

"non-bias soruces" If humans are involved your going to have bias.

Actually common sense isn't that common despite it's name, and can vary greatly from person to person and the activity.

When someone can show me what video games hitler, stalin and ancient eygptians played, that turned them violent. I am all for it.

New personal observation(warning contains some human bias) violent video games will increase a individuals aggressiveness, just like any other form of violent stimuli will.

Do you idiots live in a bubble separated from all contact with humans.

There are somethings that deserve serious scientific research, this is a thing that makes you question how much money is wasted on these ridiculous studies, that could be better spent elsewhere.

Tired of idiots trying to use video games as a scapegoat for the actions of violent individuals in our society. Or refusing to accept the consequences of their actions, and blaming on everything else.

Humans have always been violent, likely always will be.

That isn't the issue, it's people who do not control their violent impulses or tendencies that is the problem. <-- Focus on the important issue stupid.

Common sense is the fact that a book, video game, movie should not be your parent.

I have been playing violent video games since I was 5 years old when Mario started throwing turtles. I am currently 25 years old without any problems. Still playing violent video games. My study has shown no signs of increased aggression.

You my friend need to learn the difference between a biased opinion/possibly rigged study and Bullshit.

Teenage years are naturally the more aggressive/violent ones. Everyone wants to be noticed and when they are not the mind starts placing blame. Its just how the mind works when it searches for answers.

As someone who's played games since the age of three, I can easily say that I've never hit someone unless hit first. Then again, this is The Telegraph, so I don't expect much truth to come rushing out of them any time soon.
