Assignment Week 6 Even though young members of society are exposed to different violent media, there is no solid evidence that they will emulate what they see or play and commit a violent crime based on the different media. With the advancements of technology today, there are more reasons why members of society place blame for the increase in violence. Many professionals have performed numerous studies to obtain a definite solution but have yet to obtain the solution to this ever growing problem. Studies have shown that exposure to violent media such as movies, music and video games have not played a major role in the increase of violent crimes. Research studies over the last 10 year in reference to video games have helped many professionals obtain a clear understanding of how violent media affects a person in both short and long term exposure to violent media especially in terms of video games (Anderson, C. A. (2011, Jan/Feb). Violent Video Games and Other Media Violence (Part I). . , Vol 27 (Issue 1), 28-30.). Society’s belief is that even though video games have not been around as long as television, they both have the same effects on the perception of the members of society. Exposure to violent media is unlikely to cause a person to commit a crime such as a school shooting or robbery as there are many other types of risk factors that also play a major role in the development of aggressive tendacies (Anderson, C. A. (2011, Jan/Feb). Violent Video Games and Other Media Violence (Part I).
