Does Playing Violent Video Games Increase Aggression?
Does playing violent video games increase aggression?
Number of threats or instances of physical and/or verbal harm to one’s self, objects, or others. For the purposes of this definition, an act of aggression is counted as “one” if it is directed to an individual (considered 1 unit), a group (considered 1 unit), or an object (considered one unit). An act of aggression is counted from the point of origin—e.g., if a group is targeted, it is 1 instance of violence from the aggressor.
