MJA InSight Article

An opinion piece I wrote for the Medical Journal of Australia went live last week. I argue that violent video game effects are often considered in isolation and without context. It’s entirely conceivable that violent video games are one of several aspects of human experience that can increase aggression. Ideally we should be looking at how aggressive behavior is affected by other socially-accepted leisure activities (e.g. contact or combat sports).
