Study shows no evidence that violent video games lead to real-life violence. UK: A study by Agne Suziedelyte revealed that no evidence was found that violence increased after a new violent video game is released. Hence, policies that place restrictions on video game sales to minors do not help reduce violence in society. The findings of the study are published in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization.
Video games and mental health are popularly linked to each other in both good and harmful ways. They are linked to low personality development and suicidal rates. The media often portrays violent video games to affect real-life violence, although there is limited evidence to support this link. The lack of studies on mental health and video games provide not much light on the topic.
