Violent Video Games Increase Violent Behavior

A study that was released by the American Psychological Association recently shows that an increased exposure to violent interactive media, such as violent video games, increases violent behavior in children and adolescents. The APA recommends parents help children choose non-violent games to play, something I would also recommend for adults as well. The APA also called upon the game industry to reduce violence in video games. (Sources: APA, BetaNews)
