First Person Shooters (Games)

Journal Journal: Video Game Violence 3

I'm a 17year old boy from Norway, currently living in Ny as an exchange student.
In Norway, I play a lot of video games, both on my 360 and my PC. But my host mum here in the US is against all video games, and especially violent ones.
She quotes studies that states how games affects the mind of the person playing them and how bad they are for you etc.
My question is: Are there any studies that shows that videogames don't affect the person playing them. Or any good arguments I can use?
