0:10 The effects of video games on aggression

Ever since the rise of violent media in TV, movies, and now video games, their effects on kids and society have been hotly debated. A number of studies have concluded that the effects of video games on individuals are generally negative. Generally people who play violent video games show an increase in aggression and a decrease in empathy. Though video game effects seem to be largely negative, a current study decided to further expand on the findings. Previous work done on the social effect of video games have been examined from a short term perspective. This new study examined video game effects in the long run and concluded there may be good effects of video games.

2:44 New watch tells you if you're a boring conversationalist

Scientists have finally developed a watch that can determine a conversations tone. Using audio, text transcriptions, and physiological signs this watch can determine a conversations tone with 83% accuracy. Researchers say this is most helpful for those with anxiety or aspergers because it acts like a social coach.

Lag, glitches, hackers, and failing every time at that one level causes aggression.

Idk about anyone else but videogames help me submerge into an evironment were i can freely let go of my anger (being an introvert). A place were i can kill as many players as i want, to then be the most calm sheep you will have ever known outside of them.

I spend a lot of time playing games, and a lot of the ones I play have violence in them. According to the older studies, I should be a psychotic madman going around murdering people. Despite this, many people who know me would describe me as one of the calmest people they know.

For quite a few kids I know (plus myself) we are more violent when we don't play violent games. In violent games we take out all our anger on the things/characters/etc. in the game and less of that anger on other people/things.

Автор Gamer Sisters ( назад)
i think the only way for it to actually make you more violent is if you played violent games as a kid! of course, that would involuntarily teach you some more violent behavior cuz kids are like sponges. but that goes for any exposure of violence, not just VGs.

Автор Minnah4 AJ ( назад)
I think they do.
Wen you loose at a video game repeatedly, maybe cause the power went out, or it was laggy, you become more aggressive. if you KEEP playing the same game and continue to loose, you might become more aggressive to real life situations. one time, i was on my tablet, and was winning my game, when suddenly, the wifi went off. i tried fixing it, and eventually smashed my tablet against the wall because it wouldn't cooperate. this has happened to me more then once, and it can carry into real life, when something doesn't go your way, it becomes a habit to have aggression towards the situation, then figure it out rationally when it doesn't work out the way you want to.
That is what I think.

I've always joked after blasting away a bunch of zombies/ monsters/ enemies/ etc, that I feel less like hurting others. Seriously, I do feel less tense after a game, but can still feel anxious when seeing real life stuff. There are times I even have to switch the channel from CNN to something else, just to avoid getting jittery.

Автор Lyssia Ribeiro ( назад)
it's kinda funny, because I'm literally one of the most pacific person I know (like, I can't even do "violent" sports, I can't bring myself to hit someone even tho I know it's technically ok to do so) and I'm really emotional, but I love violent games.
Everytime someone says violent games makes people more agressive I think it's funny and want to laugh, because it literally sounds like a joke.
The people who usually say that kinda stuff also ignore that most violent games have consequences to your actions in some level. Aaand forget that people said the same thing about TV or that in the Middle Age there was no video games and, I mean, that was a seriously violent period.

I am a bit of a gamer but my brother practically lives of youtube and games, I also think because when you're playing video games that aren't like problem solving games you don't think you just play. My brother literally gets angry adn screams and cries over the smallest things, and I think it's because he hasn't had chances to think about things. Which stops him from maturing and realising how pathetic it is for him to be doing what he does. My whole family knows that video games are the causes, this is because he is a naturally kind and out-going kid, but after being told to get off video games he becomes extremly aggressive but when he has been banned for a week he starts to go back to his helpful nature. Also with a family friend his age was suddenly being over the top aggressive and I asked why and his sister replied with, "he's been playing video games all week".

for me, gaming actually lets me get out my aggression instead of letting it out in real life (ANGRY JITTERCLICKS)

so when I don't play for ages I can get a little cranky... people say it's withdrawal symptoms (aka I'm addicted) but it's just that I haven't let out my anger yet! 😅

My game isn't 'agressive' yet the community is disgusting and eXTREMELY toxic (like extremely extremely - worryingly)

I don't think many non-gamers get that gamers sometimes go online just to let off some real world steam instead of doing it in real life...

Автор Bongo Johnson ( назад)
Like you said, anything taxing or frustrating can cause an increase i aggression, not just video games.

But to further the points made, take Columbine for example, a championed case against violence in video games. After the tragedy at Columbine, the media lambasted violent media such as Grand Theft Auto, and other games these kids were known to play, but ultimately failed to mention these kids home, and social life. These kids were not happy at home, or school. If memory serves, then one kid had parents who were verbally abusive, and the other had authoritarian parents, and both of them were bullied at school. This constant stress may have been a much stronger catalyst to their choices than GTA, but does that mean GTA had nothing to do with it? I do not honestly think so. Violent Video games in the hands of already broken people may have adverse affects on their psychological state. The consistent strain and upset in these boys lives, intermixed with violent media, may have driven them to their violent decisions.

i think violent games just increase tolerance for graphic imagery. As in, if i saw a dead person, i would be very disturbed, but wont throw up or freak out completely. But that doesnt mean i feel any lesser, i just know how to remain calm and handle the situation easier.

There was also a study by researchers (whom of which I honestly do not remember the names of) that found some war vets actually help cope with their ptsd by playing call of duty.
Another study was done with recreating the road that a veteran experienced a traumatic event with basic graphics and oculus technology.

Also to add icing to the cake, a kid made a game for his blind grandma to play.

I've also heard studies that suggest a reversed cause/effect, where they believed violent people are more drawn to violent video games, and that's why the correlation exists.

Correlation doesn't imply causation. Violent people tend to choose violent video games, but you wouldn't turn into a real murderer after playing GTA. Are there studies that show how normal people turn into assholes after playing video games?

No. My brother plays nothing but Halo and Black Ops. He is also the calmest, most level-headed person in our entire family. The pros of video games outweigh the cons. It is proven that surgeons who grow up playing video games have better hand eye coordination than those who did not. This doesn't just apply to surgeons either. Anyone who plays video games frequently is proven to have faster reflexes and better hand eye coordination, especially if they frequently play combat games like Black Ops. Video games are also great stress relievers and loads of fun. They require you to think quickly, and with games that are challenging, think outside of the box. I also think that they teach you that it's okay to fail, you'll get better and eventually pass the level. The only cons that I can think of is the long term sitting and decreased blinking while staring at a screen. But this is changing as well with games becoming more portable.

This video completely forgets about the argument that there are other genres of video games entirely. And that many types of games such as simulators are in some ways educational without even trying to.

Prison Architect for example looks like a game about watching ongoing violence. The reality is that the game is about basic geometry, architecture, and money management. And ya know, a basic concern for human life unless you like being fired for having too many deaths that day. Where the violence is used in order to make the game less mundane.

Rimworld is another game that looks like it would be about killing other human beings. But you also have resource management, temperature controls, and a sophisticated medical system.

And Factorio is well Factorio. It's one of the most complex games that you will ever play. In fact, I haven't seen one game that has come close to beating Factorio in terms of sheer complexity. It's a game where the main focus is running a factory. The violence is used once again to make the game less mundane.

Or how FPS games in general boost dexterity, reflexes and hand eye coordination. And let's be honest, if anything shooting your boss in a video game gives you just enough relief in order to not shoot your boss in real life. Most people use video games as peaceful outlet for their anger or other pent up emotions.

Overall, this is one of the worst videos on this channel. It doesn't actually cover a single issue but rather avoids it entirely. And advertisement in a video in general should be frowned upon.

Video games hardly cause people's behaviour because most likely it's a way to cool off after an arguement or frustrating event happening in real life.
However, in my opinion, i find that if video games were for some reason removed and no one is to play one then i think i will make everyone violent. Because games is what they love and they protect what they love for ex: a toy you made. You protect your work because you spent time on it and with it.

Pretty funny - I did a study for my research methods class concerning aggression and violent video games. Ended up looking into a lot about the frustration-aggression theory, the point that previous research does not consider aggression simply by difficult of task or general anger from games that AREN'T violent, etc. I exposed the participants to a non-violent and violent video game clip, and a control video. They were all 5 minutes long and funny enough there was more anger expressed for the control video by the participants. Hostility, physical and verbal aggression was all pretty close to one another as far as means go.
