1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish, 30 Nov 2007
This review is from: Violent Video Game Effects on Children and Adolescents: Theory, Research, and Public Policy (Hardcover)
I haven't actually read this book, but I can tell it's full of utter rubbish by reading the title. As a gamer myself, I have played loads of violent video games just like thousands of other gamers. Out of these thousands of people, a few commit violent crimes and so video games are said to have "violent effects on children". I have just finished reading Bill Bryson's The life and times of the thunderbolt kid, when Bryson was younger, comics were blamed for violent acts, so people tried to ban them, the same is happening to video games. It's stupid!

Yeah, pretty much, I can see it's a idiotic book that ignorant people who have never played a game before woulld read.

My impression is that not one person commenting on the book has read it. Don't judge it by its title, which was chosen by the publisher. Please read a bit about it at http://www.grandtheftchildhood.com/GTC/Myths.html
