* Violence: Another Study

Yet another set of studies on video game violence, and the APA tries to collate the data, this time on the "no problem" side: most people aren't affected, except for the people who'd be adversely affected by other "violent" entertainment anyways?

?Much of the attention to video game research has been negative, focusing on potential harm related to addiction, aggression and lowered school performance,? said Christopher J. Ferguson, PhD, of Texas A&M International University and guest editor of the issue. ?Recent research has shown that as video games have become more popular, children in the United States and Europe are having fewer behavior problems, are less violent and score better on standardized tests. Violent video games have not created the generation of problem youth so often feared.?

In contrast, one study in the special issue shows that video game violence can increase aggression in some individuals, depending on their personalities.
So in other words... parents, do some parenting. Please. If your kid is having troubles, maybe consider taking the games away, but if not, then no big deal.
