A new documentary in Sweden is getting some attention for claiming to show that video games make kids fat, aggressive and violent to the point of committing criminal acts. Of course, there's no actual evidence that this is true, but they do find a lot of people to quote who say it might be true. Oddly, the article doesn't say much about the documentary itself - but focuses on a panel discussion after a preview of the movie. It would be a lot more interesting if there were more information about the actual movie being discussed. In the meantime, wouldn't we be better served with studies that actually show what the impact is, rather than sensationalistic documentaries that are trying to prove a point? Maybe someone should make a documentary about the impact of these sorts of documentaries instead.
