Violent games do not increase aggressive behaviour
Well for those of you who were concerned you may one day flip out and go on a crime spree after playing Saints Row or GTA, fear no more! Dr. Christopher Ferguson, a Ph.D researcher at Texas A&M International University conducted a meta analysis of studies linking exposure to violent games with aggressive behaviour. Ferguson found that there is little evidence from these previous studies linking playing violent games to an increase in violent behaviour.
"Results from the current meta-analysis found that there were about 25 recent studies on violent video game effects, with conflicting results. Overall results of the study found that although violent videogames appear to increase people's aggressive thoughts they do not appear to increase aggressive behaviour," Ferguson told GamePolitics."
