New Research Can't Find Any Link Between Video Games And Violence
from the keep-searching dept
We've already seen that, since the rise in popularity of violent video games, reports of youth violence have dropped significantly -- suggesting that one is unlikely to be causing the other. Now we have another academic study that looks specifically at whether or not violent video games resulted in violent activities and and couldn't find any connection. The researcher admits that there could be one, but that it simply wasn't shown in the data. Still, this seems unlikely to stop those who are profiting off the claims that video games do lead to violent activity.
