Abstract

Electronics have become fundamental as well as popular in our society and due to that different devices have been created that allow people to play video games. The type of video game can affect your behaviors even if it is just an aspect of it. This study was conducted to examine the effects that violent video games have on aggressive behavior. The study included X students, X male, X female, who were randomly assigned to play either a violent, competitive videogame or a nonviolent, noncompetitive videogame. The design of the study is 2 games (Halo, Minecraft) X 2 competition (competitive, noncompetitive) X 2 Test (Pre, Post). Both before and after playing the videogame, the participants were asked to fill out the PANAS scale. The games, Halo 5 and Minecraft, were played using an Xbox one and a Sylvania television. Results forthcoming.
