For years scientists, psychologists, and parents have expressed their worry that video games are causing real-life violence. There have been so many arguments, studies, and theories that it would be impossible for your average consumer to know the 100% truth.
A new book called Moral Combat: Why the War on Violent Video Games Is Wrong is set to be released on March 21. In this book penned by psychologists, the authors speak about what they believe to be the truth.
One line in the book’s description poses the question, “In what sometimes seems like an increasingly violent world, it’s only natural to worry about the effects of all this pixelated gore. But is that concern misplaced?”
This seems to indicate that the authors have supporting evidence that the connection between violence and video games is misunderstood and a fabricated danger made up by fearful caretakers.
In fact, it is known that spikes in violent video game sales actually lead to a demonstrable decrease in the violent crime rate. Of course, there are those who would disagree, evidence be damned. How might you interpret the facts? Take a journey inside the minds of young gamers in Moral Combat: Why the War on Violent Video Games Is Wrong.
We hope that this book can shed some light on the topic, and give us the unbiased truth.
The book is currently available for pre-order via Amazon.
