No, but it's an issue that affects the industry.

As to the article, it's pretty much one side of the story. There are hundreds of studies going on right now proving snippets of proof on both sides of the fence, which only shows one thing: We don't know enough yet to say what's good or bad.
The only real thing that anyone could say was spot on was that if you're not quite right in the head to begin with, then there may be an issue with playing or watching violence. But that's just common sense.

Well I agree on that. It's more for General Discussion. I'm not sure about this fish pricing you're talking about though. Unless there's an aquatic CG market opening up I haven't heard of.:D

well this article is more relevant than the price of fish, and im grateful to be aware of such research. Good read, but as erilaz said, bring your salt because its a very open field of research with too many factors to isolate the issues into 7 points.

this is not news. this is simple opinion, and propaganda at best. leave it to general discussion/off topic.
