    Default Study Suggests Violent Video Games May Make Teens Less Violent

    http://games.slashdot.org/story/13/0...s-less-violent

    "A new paper is out in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence which shows no positive correlation between playing violent video games and acts of aggression. The study of 377 children with attention deficit and depressive symptoms in fact showed a slight negative correlation between video game-playing and aggressive behavior such as bullying, which the researchers posit is due to the games awarding some measure of catharsis. The full paper is available online (PDF)."
    There is one problem I do have with Video Games. They never explain how their fictional wars got started to begin with, thus, never make children realize that Banks are behind most wars.

    I'd only add that in real WAR there is no respawn. I don't like a majority of these games and so will probably not change my opinion of them. I think they are indoctrination tools regardless of any paper someone scribbled up and will continue to actively lobby against the practice of advertising to youth...which is esentially my main gripe with the whole thing.

    I don't see it as the job of a video game programmer to teach that kind of stuff.

    Nobody needed to advertise Quake to me, stopping advertising would do little to nothing because most kids play games their friends play.

    I agree that SOME games are purposely designed by the military industrial complex as propaganda tools, but generally violent games provide a great outlet for kids to live out any violent fantasies they may have on the computer.

    Everybody's job is to teach that stuff, I just highly doubt that a big video game company would be allowed to to do so.

    All I know is endless hours of Team Fortress Classic and violent movies made me become a very non-violent person.
