Video games do not make people violent: New study shows violent video games do not make teens more aggressive

The researchers used multiple regression analysis on the survey results as part of their study. They report that roughly two-thirds of the boys and half of the girls played video games. They also report that neither the teens nor their parents noticed any increase of aggressive behavior that could be tied to violent video games. They also found no change in antisocial behavior. They note that game playing did on occasion result in angry outbursts, sometimes by teens playing alone, and sometimes between two teens playing against one another (or by online participants)—but the researchers chalked it up to normal behavior that arises during competitive play.
