In fact, evidence has pointed to the contrary - as violent videogames become more prevalent in American society, youth violence has been steadily dropping over the same time period.

Aye, in fact, if I recall from a research paper I did a while back, violent crime among youth stopped climbing and started to drop in 1993...that should ring a bell, DOOM came out the same year.
