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."
