UIUC Study: No strong link between games and violence
From the UIUC News Bureau:
No strong link seen between violent video games and aggression
"Results from the first long-term study of online videogame playing may be surprising.
Contrary to popular opinion and most previous research, the new study found that players’ “robust exposure” to a highly violent online game did not cause any substantial real-world aggression."
The study in question was conducted by UIUC researcher Dmitri Williams (Speech Communications).
