Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

Overall, it can be said more broadly: primarily other people make people violent. I'm a bit afraid of the possible conclusion of that observation, so I won't go there... ;)

PS. Games + snakes = I only hope they won't ban PyGame.
