Violent Video Games May Lower Violent Crime Rates, Study Shows
As sales of violent video games go up, violent crimes go down. That's what University of Texas Arlington associate professor Michael Ward discovered in a recent study. The reason? Time.
Because if you're shooting a people on screen, you just don't have time to shoot a people. It's called the 'time-use' effect.
Notice: I am proud to report that my university, The University of Texas at Arlington, was apart of this research and I think it deals a major blow to the positive correlation that violent video games lead to violent behavior!
