Maybe that's true, but is there evidence to support that, either?


To make a short story long, there's not enough evidence to make a specific determination but there's enough anecdotal evidence that you can draw some educated assumptions. It's nothing like climate change, in research, conclusion, or even response. Not that anyone here didn't already know that, I guess.

Actually, there's plenty of material out there. It just doesn't make the news and in many cases actually requires you to be faculty, alumni, or student (I am all three). I suggest reading ScienceDaily regularly but it only gets some of it. I won't link specific examples...well just one I found within 5 seconds of looking, here, which suggests it is inconclusive, but also here that disproves the negative (effectively as you say there is no link). However I never said violent video games are good, I said video games in general. Which is true - it helps in many places, such as spatial concepts, and increasingly social arenas (ironically). Violent games are fairly a different medium and I admit my post was leaning towards warfare...but my point was that it is a viable alternative to traditional warfare where PTSD has become commonplace.

Wanted to add that articles like this are interesting to me since my focus is on AI and robotics. I mentioned before on here that when I did a study with human-like robots, people liked them up to a degree...but when they became "too human," they hated it and became aggressive.
