    I think that if a video game makes someone violent in real life...then they probably had some screws loose in the first place.

      And now a Calvin quote to play the devil's advocate in this thread: "I'm gonna kill all those people who think that TV desensitizes me."

      You talking about Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes series right? I love those books, I have em' all :up:


        The only thing that violent video game has ever done to me is to spend less time watching useless tv shows -ecept for The Simpsons.

          kerosene and launching it in a great flaming arc from the life-size trebuchet in the back yard.
          Dangit! There goes my weekend!

          This may have some validity but I can tell you that more important than ultra fast reflexes is proper training. the reflexes of a gamer who plays an FPS may be faster in said FPS and marginally so in other areas but what is the accuracy of their reflex in an emergency on the road? Did they make the correct choice or just make a poor choice the fastest?

          I learned to drive on a combat driving course when in the military. My driving reflexes may not be as fast as some others' but I am sure they're more correct and my timing is likely better.

          Just my 2 cents on the fast reflexes issue.

          As Tephrox said, not if he controls it with the same post in a video games are bad forum and in a forum which has no bias either way. Then the research would be reasonably valid.
