Violent games do not create aggressive youth, says Oxford

It's the old dilemma we hear from time to time on the news. Do video games incite violent behavior in young people?

That's what two researchers at Oxford University wanted to find out once and for all. Both conducted a study to determine the influence of video games on younger minds.

In this regard, the researchers interviewed about 1,000 teenagers and their parents on the subject. However the results were not at all alarming.

There is still no link between violent video games and aggressive teenagers

Over time, video games have evolved to become more realistic and violent. Countless studies have been done but somewhat inconclusive. The point is that most researchers ignore the opinion of parents. In this case, the Oxford gentlemen made a point of addressing the parental side of the thing.

First, the age range of respondents was between 14 and 15 years old, of both sexes. Then the interview was directed to the parents. The researchers asked several questions related to video games.

They questioned whether young people felt more aggressive in their daily lives, or specifically after playing a game. Subsequently, parents answered similar questions regarding their perception of their children's behaviors.

The results were several. About two thirds of boys and half of girls are regular players. However, no aggressive or even antisocial behaviors were detected.

The only less peaceful behaviors were in the frustration of losing a game alone or to a friend in two-game games. However, these are perfectly normal emotions in the heat of competition.

In short, studies are not necessarily needed to prove that violent video games are not responsible for equal behavior. Just use our common sense to realize that young people know how to differentiate between a game and reality. Video game addiction is a legitimate and growing concern in some parts of the world, especially Asia.
