Track down the Penn and Teller: Bullshit episode on violent video games, it will really help.
ok ill go look it up maybe it can help thanks
One of the first (and best) articles I read on the subject was in the back of my ”Secrets of the Game, Turbo GrafX 16 Secrets” by Rusel DeMaria and Andy Eddy. Rusel went on to write an entire book on the subject, Reset.
There was also this recent study, Driving Games Make Players More Aggressive Than Shooting Games.
The first article will deal more with a parental guide on how to deal with a kid that gets frustrated by a game, the second, unfortunately is based on 18-45 year olds (yes, I still fall into this category).
I don’t think a video game can make a person with no aggressive tendencies become aggressive and I seriously doubt that without video games in their life, an aggressive person would for some reason become mellow. There were no video games around for World War I, World War II and all the wars and conflicts that preceded them.
Also, I remember a study on gangs and video games actually lessoning gang violence due to a cathartic effect.
Check out the book ”Everything Bad is Good for You.” It touches on this subject and other issues with electronic media. Worth citing.
Also look into the 1950’s US Senate investigation into whether comic books increased juvenile delinquency, because of the obvious parallels. Flash forward 50 years and Middle School & High School English teachers are employing graphic novels & comic books to promote reading. Will something similar happen with video-games 50 years from now?
