This could be also because while studies have shown the effect of games in some cases (like this one, even if I fail to see the importance of being a video game, or other cases where people with phobias are "trained" around them using games), studies which find links between videogames and violence are non-existant. And still, it should be VERY easy to prove, just by looking at the percentage of minors in jail for violent crimes which are avid violent videogame players. I'm also sure you remember the statistics (posted here on slashdot) showing that in the years after the release of Doom, violent crime went down.....

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
