Violent Video Game Study Round-Up #3,871,324,666

Maybe people that are prone to physical aggression are drawn to violent video games. Thankfully it is easy to prove that people were never physically aggressive before the invention of video games. Wait...never mind. 

An international study looking at more than 17,000 adolescents, ages nine to 19, from 2010 to 2017, found playing violent video games led to increased physical aggression over time. The analysis of 24 studies from countries including the U.S., Canada, Germany and Japan found those who played violent games such as "Grand Theft Auto," "Call of Duty" and "Manhunt" were more likely to exhibit behavior such as being sent to the principal's office for fighting or hitting a non-family member.
