An article I read discusses the controversy surrounding the negative effects of video games. It is said that people who play violent video games show violent behavior and it is also said that video games have negative affects such as addiction, isolation and poor school performance. The article goes on to show that all of the research done to try and prove these theories has been inconclusive. There is no scientific evidence that is solid enough o prove that any of these negative effects are real. I think that this will be important to include in my paper because I think that these “negative effects” are what drive everyone away from the thought of using video games in education.
