I think the real cause for concern here isn't that it would be a waste of money; it would be who is conducting the study and how. People can twist evidence any way they want, really, and I'll bet you they find a correlation between violent video games and violent children (because if you love violence, of course you're going to be more likely to play a violent game). I just hope that the researchers are open-minded enough not to mistake correlation for causation.
