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?

Frustration makes you aggressive not aggressive and violent games. A couple years ago I was a "gamer" I played about 10 hour in a day, but I never was aggressive with others. Instead, after a couple of hour successful shooting I felt myself calm and relaxed.
Struggling with a game makes you tense and the lack of success makes you aggressive. Of course there is people who takes games too seriously but I am sure that they have other more serious problems than game generated aggression.
