An argument of semantics - the end result is the same.

Thank you. Saved me having to reply. Although I did anyway. Just to be a prick.

Oh Jesus, another take on the video games cause behavior argument.

Or the first?

This is the first study showing that exposure to risk-glorifying video games actually increases real-life health-related risk-taking behavior.

After taking a word test designed to measure whether risk-taking was on their minds, the students were asked whether they were interested in taking a saliva test that “would identify a rare but important metabolic disorder.” There was no charge, but they were informed that they’d have to wait for 20 minutes while the saliva sample was analyzed.

Only 12 of the participants who played one of the racing games agreed to take the saliva test, compared to 28 who blew it off. Among those who played the other games, a majority (24) agreed to take the test, while 17 opted out.

Suuuure

They had University students play Need for Speed where they're running red lights and smashing the competition out of the way in a crazy dash to 1st place....skipping on the test is not risk taking, its impatience.

The other group had to play Tetris or UEFA, and I bet if they forced them to play those games at a faster speed with quicker decision making, then their impatience to wait for 20 minutes would change too.

It's not risk-glofying, it's speed of gameplay that caused the impatience which led to them skipping the tests.

Stupid shits...hell the lead psychologists even looks stupid
