Video Game Double Standard FTL?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

So I need some help on my crusade against the video game double standard! I've got a 7 minute persuasive speech tomorrow (yes I know I shouldn't have procrastinated...). I need to convince the class that video games aren't as bad as they sound in the media and in anti-gaming research; they don't increase aggression, they aren't bad for you, and have been made into a double standard by politicians, the media, etc. I've already been doing searches on the OCN/google, and was just wondering if anyone knew of any really great research/articles/etc that would help. Any help, regardless of your stance on video games, would be greatly appreciated! Just try to keep the flames down...

Here's what I've found so far:

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20188502_2,00.html (got this from an OCN post)

might anyone have a more reliable or in depth link about how the Virginia Tech shooter wasn't connected to CS like Thompson and the Washington Post said he was?

I'll keep adding in more stuff as I find it...

You can put in your speech that a majority of the cases blaming video games for shootings and suicides end up w/ set kid having a very serious emotional issue and is generally on medication and at the time of the incident set person usually stops taking for any reason.

I don't have any factual #'s there but generally that is the case.
