    No link between violent video games and aggression, says doctor

    Ok gamers, a doctor says that theres no link between gaming violence and aggression.

    Doctor Simon Goodson shared his views on violent video games and their effect on real world crimes.

    "We've tried for three years to find evidence for a link between aggression and violent video games either way - but we haven't been able to, because it doesn't exist," Dr. Goodson said.

    "This time, we used this brand new equipment from America - which I think cost about $50,000 - to looking at brain activity," he continued. "This isn't Mickey Mouse research, we're using medical-grade equipment to do this that they use in hospitals. We found nothing going on at all with those that were playing the violent game. The only time you'd see emotional reaction is when [people's character] would die - that's when you get some kind of impact. We think these findings lay to bed the argument that violent video games make people aggressive."

    Is it a coincidence that just today I read an article on how video game's do influence behavior?

    The only link one has to a violent game is when you get killed and you rage about
    how "bullshit of a kill that was" or "OMG **** YOU!"

    Other then that like its just kids being a beyond retarded human being

    Thumbs up for this, its too easy to just blame a violent behaviour on video games. I think it may be a factor in some incidents, but a rather small one.
