I think Lee Carvelo should capitalize on this news and remarket his videogame.

How do we know the pre-existing aggression isn't the reason certain groups play violent video games, as opposed to the video games being at fault?

In my opinion, anonimity, a culture of online trash talking and bad sportsmanship brings out the worst in teenagers.

The study controlled for this via random assignment. I still disagree with the conclusions drawn by the author but still, have to be fair.

Of course violent media brings out the "worst" in someone. I'm not going to go out and shoot people after watching a movie or playing a game, but I could perhaps feel pumped to do silly stuff I would otherwise not do. Now, if someone were to commit an act of crime after experiencing violent media, well, that person had a problem to begin with.

I am gonna have to study this study. Its gotta b almost impossible to keep all other variables consistent. Do all the children playing the violent games come from the same area, financial background, parental guidance etc. This seems sketchy to me.

So true. I killed so many people during my high school years. I am a professional hitman now. I kill for a living. Games taught me the rudimentary skills. anyway if you want someone dead. Message me.
