Violent video games are not in fact bad for us! a new study found that they can make kids smarter, and actually have no negative effects on their behavior. Research has shown that people who played violent video games were actually LESS likely to act in violence. "The biggest surprise in the paper was that randomized, double-blind trials with young games found that a few rounds of a first"person shooter showed they developed faster reaction times, higher spatial resolutions, and "enhanced mental rotation facilities" " meaning the ability to visualize shapes from different angles."--- theregister.co.uk Multiple studies show that video games are actually good for you and can make you smarter!
