Why Video Game Violence Research Is Getting Ridiculous

Otaku Dome:

Video Game Violence Research has been a controversial topic over the last few years for both researchers and gamers a like, but there’s a bit of ridiculousness when it comes to this research. What most of this comes down to is the Ratings System and the Parents, and there’s plenty of reasons why. For one thing the ESRB, Pegi, etc system is meant to provide parents (and the gamers) with guidelines as to what they should/could be able to play and what they shouldn’t. Yet every year we hear the same case about some 12 year old playing Grand Theft Auto V and then committing some heinous act of violence towards another human being. (Culture, Industry, Tag Invalid)
