Video games have been talked about a lot in the last week or two of class and that's what I'd like to hit on here. Before learning about some of the research for video gaming and children, my immediate thoughts were that it doesn't do anything. I grew up a kid playing violent video games, and I consider myself a very reserved person, keeping my emotions away from things, and hardly ever becoming physical. But once we started looking into the research of video games, it made me question just how much was this because of the actual video games themselves, or was it because my parents let me play video games in a manner which still allowed me to grow into a non-violent human being. After watching the video's of Barney and the Power Rangers, I was swung to believe that although some kids like myself aren't as violent, some violence is inevitable when playing these video games, especially at a younger age. The mom of the little girl who was sitting in the corner while the rest of the kids were acting like power rangers, stated that her daughter would never do that, yet sure enough, after some time...it happened. This goes to show that there are factors in which one will become violent, and video games and media are not the only factor. Parental supervision and peers acting a certain way can change one's behavior. Overall, it is a very hard subject to prove, but also very entertaining to hear different points on.
