A.P.A.: Violent video games make you aggressive

A.P.A. review confirms link between playing violent video games and aggression

I remember seeing a news clip about Mortal Kombat Coin Op when it first came out, and parents they interviewed for the segment said things like:

'They {game developers} better stop this, or they really will have killing in the streets'
- something like that.


Front Line Coin Op was a favorite of mine, along with Operation Wolf Coin Op , Operation Thunderbolt Coin Op , and the well - named Chiller Coin Op , to name just a few, and never once shot at another person nor have desire to do so outside of doing it within video games.

I've played Double Dragon Coin Op , Street Fighter 2, Super: The New Challengers Coin Op along with many other beat - em - up/ fighter games, and have no desire to attack anyone IRL.

I've played the Grand Theft Auto series on PS2, Call of Duty first person shooters, Wolfenstein 3D Super Nintendo and even Doom 64 (USA) Nintendo 64 , still with no effect of increasing aggressive behavior in myself.

How about you guys?

Along the same lines of thinking: does playing Pac Man Coin Op make you into a Glutton {alternate title for Pac Man}, or playing Frogger Coin Op make you want to hop into traffic?

Enough out of me, what do you guys say?

Re: A.P.A.: Violent video games make you aggressive

I've known people who get really amped up by violent games/movies so yeah I believe there can be a connection. I don't think it's just people with issues though, some people are impressionable and they lose themselves in the moment. I guess it could be called blood lust?

Guns don't kill people, video games do.

Re: A.P.A.: Violent video games make you aggressive

Sorry about the poll, the last 2 options above 'Other please specify' are practically identical.
Originally I had one of those read as 'impressionable younger players', but figured that's so obvious it's not worth mentioning.

I must admit my opinion is heavily biased due to my love of games in general and any threat to them makes me fearful I may not be able to enjoy them anymore - and that fear does make me mad in a way.

Agreed, but should the rest of the world be censored just because certain people can't control themselves?

In certain instances this is unfortunately the truth; marathon Gamers have dropped dead after 12+ hour sessions.
Where guns are concerned, I think everyone should own and carry a gun - there's nothing wrong with them except the fear - mongering hype taught by the mainstream media.
Smartass answer, I know.

Most of these kinds of 'studies' seem to be geared towards making the world kid - friendly.
The world is NOT kid - friendly and censorship {which is where this is leading} does not work.
Furthermore, these 'kids' AREN'T kids anymore - am I the only one who can see this?

Furthermore furthermore, people LOVE violence, gore, killing - but we call it 'action' - it's in our genes and I believe every human has a Killer Instinct Super Nintendo , however well hidden and suppressed it is within an individual.
Video games provide a safe and sane outlet for this.

They'd have to censor movies, books, plays, poems, ect too.
