The effects of violent video games. Do they affect our behavior? (Bushman, 2011)

Brad Bushman (Ohio State University) wrote up an article at the International Human Press about violent videogames effects citing well-known research studies and the 1972 Surgeon General’s warning of the adverse effects of violent television. Well, the writing is straightforward and addressed many common questions and retorts that many often see (e.g. I play violent video games, I don’t feel violent, etc.).

  4. There is no question that video games affect our behaviour just as any other media content does. The unknown here is to what extend playing a violent video game all day affects the human brain in a more negative way than for example staring all day long in an excel sheet or an oracle application. While one can be aggressive, but is actually entertaining and probably helps you deal with boredom and anger, the other one is just frustrating and may have a much more negative effect.
