Study Finds Solid Link Between Video-Game, Real-World Violence

Violent video games really may make kids more violent, new research suggests.

Previous such studies had a big flaw - they couldn't prove whether the games had made the kids violent, or if already-violent kids were drawn to violent games.

But data from three long-term studies in the U.S. and Japan shows that otherwise peaceable kids first played violent games - and then months later became more aggressive in school, more likely to get into fights.

If you think about it ....we have not had a world war since the Advent of game consoles and PC gaming. Yah ....violence predates video games.

What actually causes more violence , death etc. Is religion. Seriously if everyone is at home gaming when not working there would be no violence.

I murdered 1,000,000 foes online. Yet I would only kill in life in the defense of self,friends,family, or country men.

You should play some Zelda if your looking for Link BTW.

Has anyone ever been to Anger Management here? I have. Video games have jack to do with violence ultimately its the lack of someone's ability to control there emotions that leads to violence.

Video games are an emotional outlet take them away and its likely we would see more violence in the streets. Anything can be used for good or evil intent in the end though.
