Video Games

As Schaffer reports, what are the three types of studies that researchers use to connect video game violence to real-world violence?

What "intuitive" connections does Schaffer say exist between violent video game content and increased levels of aggression in young people?On The Daily Show on Thursday, April 26, [2007,] Jon Stewart made short work of the suggestion that the Virginia Tech shooter, Cho Seung-Hui, might have been influenced by violent video games. (Cho may or may not have played the popular first-person-shooter game Counter-Strike in high school.) A potential videogame connection has also been dangled after past killings, to the irritation of bloggers. The reports are that shooter Lee Boyd Malvo played the game Halo before his sniper attacks around Washington, D.C., and that Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold loved Doom. Does the link between video games and violence hold up?
