This is an important piece of research because it gives me some concrete data that is controlled in the way that previous articles have described. This particular article takes three different groups of people and measures the effect of violent media and video games on how violent and depressed they are. The findings show that for the groups of Mexican-American and English young men, neither violent media or video games had any effect on how violent or depressed they were. For Croatian young men, violent video games reduced their tendency for violence slightly where violent media increased it. This will be good concrete data for my paper which will help to prove my thesis.
This is an interesting article to use because one of the author’s is also an author of another paper I have cited. This appears to be a credible source as it has been published in a peer reviewed journal.
