+ - No link between violent behavior and video games->

Submitted by MozeeToby
MozeeToby (1163751) writes "In a study confirming what most of us already believed, it was found that there is no link between violence and video games. Christopher Ferguson of Texas A&M has published a meta-analysis of the results of past research done on the topic.

He concludeds "Once corrected for publication bias, studies of video game violence provided no support for the hypothesis that violent video game playing is associated with higher aggression."

As an added bonus, he also found that violent games improve spatial awareness. Maybe this will finally put the debate to rest... or most likely not."
