National — Playing violent video games could lead to aggressive behavior. Researchers at Ohio University studied 70 University students who played violent or non-violent video games for 20 minutes each day for three days.
They found those who played violent games were more hostile and aggressive than those who played non-violent games. They say repeated exposure to such violence could have a cumulative affect. The study established an association between violent video games and aggression - but not a cause-and-effect relationship.
