This is not merely an academic question Deranged individuals now regularly commit IRL mass shootings using IRL weapons of war to murder innocent people Yet those weapons of war only exist because they are used every day for the IRL official killing and death of people in less fortunate countries around the world Are video games to blame for real deaths?

    Kindle Lost in a Good Game PDFEPUB #9734; a Good PDFEPUB #238; army of northern virginiaco lost epub, good epub, game kindle, Lost in kindle, a Good pdf, in a Good kindle, Lost in a Good Game eBookAt first it seemed to me that this would be a glib attempt at gaming apologia full of sound and fury anecdotes and conjecture signifying nothing but Etchells suddenly and regularly switches gears and provides a thorough scientific analysis of just how unscientific our common sense regarding gaming and screen time is His background as a doctoral researcher shines brightly in this regard The bottom line? We just don’t really know how video games affect us Nevertheless Etchells believes them to be a valid and worthwhile intellectual and emotional engagement and this is where the ‘soft’ chapters of the book based primarily on personal stories and interviews come in A very good book Well worth a read if you’ve spent any time at all agonising over the social physical and intellectual implications of our increasing ventures into virtual worlds
