Study: violent video games can lead to agression

This Morning

The debate over the effects of video games on children has been alive since the start of the medium.

Well a new report will add fuel to the fire.

That report comes from the American Psychological Association task force has concluded playing violent video games can lead to an increase in aggression.

However, even after more than 20 years of studies the APA says there still isn’t enough research into whether games cause actual criminal violence.

The seven person task force reviewed 170 studies on video game violence and consulted with experts in the field.

The group found a number of areas where current research is insufficient.

On ABC9 News This Morning, Rachael Krause and Scott Larson chatted about the study.
