Here we go – another burst of reactionary technophobia masquerading as serious research into a correlation between video game violence and the real thing. I remain to be convinced that cause and effect are as clear cut as these studies claim them to be – and I’d be very interested to discover where the funding for this particular project came from.
One thought on “Video games and violence – yes, again”
Out of sheer morbid curiousity, how would you know how to judge the research one way or another?
Most people who get their science news from the media or the internet really don’t have the training to judge a piece of research. How do they know what to believe.
If their “trusted proxy” is himself untrained in data analysis and research methods, who can they trust?
