For years, parents, teachers, politicians, television pundits, opportunistic lawyers, and other cranky old geezers who have never picked up a video game controller have been trying to convince everyone that video games turn children into bloodthirsty psychopaths. Now science has given you explicit permission to walk right up to them and laugh so hard in their faces that their skin melts clean off the bone.
The University of Texas recently conducted a psychological study
to find relationships between playing violent video games and aggression in the people who play them. The study found that even though games can increase a person's aggression, that aggression doesn’t do harm because it's not directed towards actual people or society.
