A New Book Aims for a Smarter Conversation About Video Games and Behavior

In this study, we investigated the extent to which adolescents who spend time playing violent video games exhibit higher levels of aggressive behaviour when compared with those who do not. Young people provided reports of their recent gaming experiences. Further, the violent contents of these games were coded using official EU and US ratings, and carers provided evaluations of their adolescents' aggressive behaviours in the past month. Following a preregistered analysis plan, multiple regression analyses tested the hypothesis that recent violent game play is linearly and positively related to carer assessments of aggressive behaviour. Results did not support this prediction, nor did they support the idea that the relationship between these factors follows a nonlinear parabolic function. There was no evidence for a critical tipping point relating violent game engagement to aggressive behaviour.

So rather than simply moan about the problem, Suzi Gage and I, along with some colleagues from the University of Bristol and UCL, decided to do some research for ourselves. Using data from the Children of the 90s study, we set out to answer a seemingly simple question: is there an association between playing violent video games at young age, and aggressive behaviour during teenage years? In some experimental studies for instance, the way aggression is measured is so poorly implemented that you can essentially find whatever association with video game play you want , simply based on how you analyse the data.
