G4TV: Boys who don't play games are more at risk

30 second read

G4TV has an interview with Lawrence Kutner and Cheryl Olson, the directors and co-founders of the Harvard Medical School Centre for Mental Health and Media and authors of the new book, Grand Theft Childhood.

In the interview they discuss their research and findings as well as how there is a great misconception about the effect of videogames on children in society today and how results proved the opposite of many of the ideas about the effects of gaming on children.

Take a look. It’s pretty interesting.

    I can confidently say that my uncles impressive porn collection had more an effect on me than PacMan, Space Invaders and Leisure Suit Larry.

    It seems as though the view that playing video games leads to negative behavior is finally being put to bed.

    Impressive investigation.

    But politicians will still play the games card to detract from their own sordid lifestyles.

    They finally realized that gaming is much more than pushing buttons and looking at a screen. 😕
