Abstract

With the increase in both violence in video games and aggression in children and young adults, psychologists are investigating whether these are related. The purpose of this review will be to look at the existing empirical research in order to discover whether there is a causal relationship between playing violent video games and aggression. The conclusions will help parents and educators make decisions about what games they allow their children and students to play.
