Video Games Make Good Kids Evil

from the watch-out... dept

Well, somehow I imagine the findings of this study will be used in lawsuits and comments to Congress in the near future. Previous studies have always had problems showing that exposure to violence made people more violent. However, here’s a study that says that by limiting how much time children spend playing video games (though, not indicating which games) and watching television, the children become nicer. I’d be interested in the details of the study, but I’m sure some family groups will use it to try to ban certain video games in the name of safety for our children.
