“There is NO Conclusive Evidence Attributing Violent Behavior to Violent Video Games…In Fact, Gaming Even Helps Prevent Crime”

Seems far fetched, but studies show that gaming actually decreases crime!

The immersive quality of video games is actually so immersive (even more so than movies and TV) that video games keep violent people off the streets. The Centre for European Economic Research worked with researchers in Texas and determined that crime rate actually drops in areas with more game stores. Dr. Michael Ward from the University of Texas asserts, “[Areas with] more game stores are associated with significant declines in crime rates for six of eight categories of crime […] Mortality rates, especially mortality rates stemming from injuries, also are negatively related to the number of game stores.”
