I believe that a lot of people think that video-games make people mad. I'm not talking about rage-quitting because you are bad at the game, I mean in general. I have constructed a test with my friends to see if violent/shooter games make you more aggressive. Half of them played violent games and the other half didn't (the test was for a week). The half that played never played shooter games before and they experienced no difference except for the fact that they now like shooter games. The half that normally played but wasn't because of the test had no difference in their attitude (they wanted to play though...). According to the results of the test no differences were found so obviously that can't be right. I also did my research and 12/18 websites/sources said it didn't cause aggression were as the other six said it did.

So until there is more definitive evidence, it doesn't seem right to imply that there is a clear and known effect. And it certainly isn't right to tenuously highlight links between video game use and violent behaviour whenever it is vaguely possible to do so. It detracts from figuring out if there is another underlying cause instead.


I think video games make you aggressive, especially on shooting and racing games. I am one of them. Sometimes, it could get out of hand.

I'm not talking about rage-quitting of course people get mad form that but it ends in like a second, I mean does it change people's behavior overall.

I don't really have anything else to say, so I kinda just want to say that they don't cause aggression.

Video games don't make people aggressive, but lag does.

You cannot blame video games for violent actions, it is like blaming food for obesity. Also, so what if teens who shoot up a school had a record of playing video games everyone plays video games, there is just that 1 percent of people who were already aggressive and had aggressive wants before playing video games
