Video Games are Not Your Scapegoat

Video Games are Not Your Scapegoat

Understanding the data on violent video games

Video games get become the convenient scapegoat when horrific acts of violence happen. The problem is there are many studies but few find significant link between acts of violence and violent video games. It's fortunate that politicians seem to always want to link video games with act of violence. This week I will discuss why that's not the case. Spoiler: It may help reduce violence.

Politicians only care about easy convenient fixes. Video games fit that mold.
