/ Played # 12 - Violence in Video Games

For this episode of / Played, we talk about violence in video games. As it is a sensitive and complicated subject to deal with, we called on a psychology student who provided a lot of sources to deal with the subject and whom we thank once again. Nakou and Stuka will be responsible for leading the debate.



  • The hitman study (Ferguson & Rueda2010)
  • Do video games exert stronger effects on aggression than film ? (lin 2013)
  • Chronic violent video game exposure and desensitization to violence: Behavioral and event-related brain potential data (Bartholow, Bushman, Sestir 2005)
  • Engelhardt, Barholow, Kerr and Bushman in 2011
  • Media violence and the self: The impact of personalized gaming characters in aggressive video games on aggressive behavior (Fisher, Greitemeyer, Kastenmüller 2009)
  • Motion capture controls negate the violent video-game effect (Charles, Baker, Hartman, Easton, Kreuzberger (2013)
  • Cyber-dehumanization: Violent video game play diminishes our humanity (Bastian, Jetten, radke 2012)
  • A longitudinal test of video game violence influences on dating and aggression: A 3-year longitudinal study of adolescents (Ferguson, San Miguel, Garza, Jerabeck 2012)
  • Effect of prosocial videogames on prosocial behavior (greitemeyer et Osswald 2010)
  • The influence of solitary and cooperative violent video game play on aggressive and prosocial behavior Ferguson et Jerabeck (2013)
  • Background music matters: Why video games lead to increased aggressive behavior? (Zhang et Gao, 2014)

For parents, Camille offers you an article on the prevention of injuries related to video games on children.



On the testing side, I present to you the survival game The Forest (that we had broadcast a little preview on social networks). I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that this game, rated 18+, is currently in Alpha and already offers a trying experience.


Happy listening and see you soon!
