Maybe games don't cause violence. Yet another study on the matter concludes that playing video games doesn't make children more aggressive, at least when playing for less than 15 minutes. The study, conducted by psychologists Jeanne Funk and Debra Buchman, looked at the game play habits of 35 boys and girls between the ages of eight and 12. While playing games didn't seem to incite violent tendencies in the children studied, they did see a link between a preference for violent games and an aggressive inclination. In the end, the researchers concluded that more study would probably be needed.
