More Video Games Cause Violence BS

Remember that insanely stupid study that measured the effects of violent video games by the amount of chili powder people put in someone's drink? Here is more of that BS, with one professor even claiming there is a direct link between video games and violence. roll eyes (sarcastic) Listen to what he says at the two minute mark and I dare you not to laugh.

The results clearly showed that playing a violent video game increases aggressive behavior, and also makes people numb to the pain and suffering of others. There is a link between exposure to violent media and violent criminal behavior. We can't do experimental studies. It's just a correlation. Correlation doesn't imply causation, but they're related.
