This research shows that today there is more violence in television programming and video game content than just a few years ago and that more children than ever are watching such programming and playing such games. Furthermore,the paper points out that children, particularly boys, are playing more video games than watching television, and the violent content and gender role models exemplified in the games preferred by boys has been the source of increasing concern by educators, policymakers, and parents alike. The writer also states that the growing concern over violence in video games may be more justified than previously believed. The research suggests that playing such games can have an adverse effect on social development among young game players, especially boys, and may contribute to a higher incidence of aggressive behavior among this population.
