Welcome back, everyone! I hope that you have seen the other three parts of this series entitled Does Video Game Violence Cause Children and Adolescents to Become Violent? In this part, which contains images and video clips, we’ll be looking at the evolution of violence in video games, starting from Atari 2600 and ending with recent games on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. It’s kind of funny that even back in the 1980’s some parents, teachers, media watchdogs, and psychologists were decrying the levels of violence in those early video games, which now seem absolutely tame by today’s standards. Please be warned that some of the images and video clips are from M-rated video games and are intended for people ages 17 and over. Also, if you haven’t watched the other 3 parts of the series, please check out those first:
