C|Net finally figures out what we've been trying to tell people all along ...
C|Net's John Borland is a brilliant, brilliant man. In his editorial covering the happenings at QuakeCon, John manages to figure out what gamers have been screaming at the top of their lungs all along ... that so-called "violent" games do not MAKE gamers violent.
Effectively, it's the adrenaline rush that violent games (or ANY medium) gives you that causes the aggressive behavior, but that for most gamers, other factors such as the social benefits of an event like QuakeCon or even two friends gaming together at a house, mitigate any psychological effects.
Rather than try to rehash it all here, we at PlanetGameCube urge you to go to C|Net and read John's editorial.
