Video Game Aggression

Video Game Aggression
In this article the commonly brought up argument, that violent video games increase aggression in children, is addressed. The author argues that the results of many research experiments may be flawed due to fact that different video games may have other factors that trigger violent behavior and aggression.  The author then brings up the fact that many studies also lead to the conclusion that competition also creates aggression, which begs the question of whether or not competition is the key to aggression.

This article was very interesting to me because it offers an interesting take on the commonly referenced debate. I believe that as violent video game experiences are more realistic and immersive, this psychological dilemma must be thoroughly addressed and studied.
