Violent videogames (VVG) like Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Counter-Strike don't have long-term effects on aggression or empathy, according to an fMRI study conducted by German researchers.
The aggression studies are always a joke to me. If anything, they test when kids are frustrated with the controls or if the AI just beat them lol
There the problem has been settled. Dang!!!
in other news water is wet. Most things in life can be positive or negative, food, sports, games, etc. You can let them enrich your life or take over it but you cant blame them for your actions.
Yes I agree. Thing is people who don't play videogames regularly will tend to believe whatever they read or see without questioning it so it's good sometimes to have this sort of 'news' even if it seems obvious to us.
Indeed. But eventually the society will be composed only of people who at least understand games.
People just believe what ever fits their agenda.
Yes, we've known this for years, it's been proven time and time again. Now I wonder if people will concede, that since video games do not cause violence, that they don't cause sexism either?
Now do a study to check for increased aggression in the comment sections of video game websites.
VVG lol they got terminology for it now too. Trying so hard to classify everything and proving NOTHING. Good DAY sir.
Wasn't this answer reached years ago?
Of course they do. Haha, if your exposed to violence, even simulated of course you'll condition yourself to it. ..There doesn't need to be studies, it's common fkn sense. ~Now, if there's going to be studies, do them on how much exposure to violent/mainstream entertainment it takes to begin negatively effecting a persons ability to properly manage themselves. Because that's going to be what actually matters. A normal person isn't going to do a playthrough of Skyrim and suddenly think it's okay to kill som1 and toss their body off a cliff.. But maybe after 20 years of watching UFC and slasher flicks you may be more likely to respond with violence in a tense situation that someone who actively avoids violence all together.
I think it depends on the person and their age IMO.
