all this really sounds like the arguments made when tv first started

look at point 9 in the following article - they actually credit video games with dropping crime rates bbc report on us crime downturn

also obesity is the largest health issue in north america - however while games may contribute to that - the widespread demographic would seem to suggest we all need to change our diets gamers and otherwise look at the following graph from the CDC obesity trends I should also add here that the diabetes trend looks just like the obesity one

Which probably looks the same as the # of McDonalds opened in the US....

Fast food is killing our nation.

Bad parenting makes kids obese, aggressive, violent; sadly not as easily milkable for votes or easy to legislate against.

They should link to the actual study.

There wasn't one. The headline was based off of the opinion of the Dr. who runs the company who conducted the survey and, from what I can tell, didn't really have anything to do with what the survey itself was actually conducted about.

The research methodology was weak. Self reported surveys like this are weak and showing correlation is not causation. They should link to the actual study. I don't think highly of a journalist's ability to read a scientific paper and report on it.

As opposed to say playing sports which only reduces the obesity? And what about watching TV, films, or sitting around listening to music?

Or reading forums...

The same kind of people said the same kind of stuff about Atari and coin-op video games. They pooped on pinball, decried dancing, murdered music, killed comics, and banned books.

Second verse same as the first.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
