    But I could be playing anything and have heightened aggression… especially when concentrating!

    +DigimonVids Since I can't respond to your other comment I'd also like to say that I don't believe their violence research isn't valid, I don't think anyone has, though it comes across that way.  You might also think by extension that I'm contradicting myself, I've been spewing a few generalizations in regards to research and perceptions of gamers coming out of the USA I know, but they should be ones you're already familiar with.  And for the record I said the research was meaningless to me, that doesn't necessarily mean it's not valid.

    There's a big difference between claiming invalidity and disagreeing.  You don't seem to know where to draw the line with that one.  Also waving the whole "read the research" card and assuming the ignorance of other people that are expressing dissenting views makes a debate very, very dull. c:

    Actually I'm feeling less depressed about the whole subject thanks to you.

    Most people here claiming that the violence research has no validity (mostly due personal opinion, which is insane) are just offended that it may apply to them. Have you read the article, have you read related ones, have you validated who conducted the research?
    If you had, then you would've known that the research is correct in the link and requires further research to determine how far this link goes (as in creating crime). If you hadn't, you're simply a bored, ignorant, keyboard warrior :)

    Come on guys don't just immediately call the study stupid. There is a scientific process which should be taken. We don't know if there is a link between violent games and real world violence. I personally don't think there is but I doubt anyone who is calling the test stupid has seen the numbers. Let them do the research that should be conducted whenever there is a change that could significantly effect society.

    I don't think it should be a surprise that violent people tend to play more violent games. The same is probably true for people who like to drive fast and racing games, people who are into sports and sports games, pilots and flight sims etc etc. We tend to be attracted to the sort of games that go into the stuff that we're into. The same is true for movies, books, music, hobbies, phone cases, tshirts….. So that shouldn't surprise anyone.

    But that doesn't mean it goes the other way. Just because I like Zelda doesn't mean I go around smashing people's pottery.

    You know Fallout Shelter hasn't been out on Android for long when you download it and it says '10 Downloads'

    All the reports that are out there that say violent video games make us violent and those that don't really makes it hard for me to know who's telling the truth. Plus ive been meaning to try fallout shelter.
