Games and Violence

Another study has been done reporting to show that violent video games lead to violent people. What it actually shows is that exposure to violent images reduces the reaction to violent images. Whee. The critics of the conclusion were kindly given a paragraph down toward the bottom of the article.

Look you guys, stop coming up with specious conclusions about video games OK? Will watching Battlestar Galactica lead to me talking to a tall, blonde woman that no one else can see? OK, that's possibly a bad example, but let's just say that I love the Half-Life series, so you don't want to make me angry...
