For decades, parents, psychologists, and neuroscientists have studied the potential connection between violent video games and the level of real-world violence displayed by the children and young adults who play them, especially those shown on the national stage for criminal activity and mass shootings. A plethora of research and academic study has erupted from this debate, contributing to our growing knowledge of how the brain works when interacting with video games and why further research into the topic is important. So, as we traverse a new world of technological advancement and even more complex immersion into video games, do video games cause violence?
No, video games do not cause violence
There is no proven correlation between playing violent games and real-world violence.
There is no known link between violent crimes and video game use
Because there has never been any conclusive evidence that violent video games are a major cause of violent offenses and mass killings, the idea that there is some connection, even without a shred of definitive proof, is illogical.
