Research Post #6

While researching I came across an article in favor of violent video games. Now, as I stated before I am all for restrictions on video games, but that does not mean that I don’t enjoy playing them. I regularly play violent video games like Call Of Duty, Gears of War, and Assassin’s Creed. A good point was made, people, and especially parents, like to jump to conclusions on why their child has done something or why children in general act in a certain way. Often they don’t look at what they did, or didn’t do, but why it is everyone else’s fault. But as I already stated, research in this field is very inconsistent and contradictory. Video games tend to be the automatic response to violence in the world because of the content and “what it teaches children” from a young age.
