The Onion Takes Aim at British Video Game Research

November 20, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

An amusing edition of comedy site The Onion's "American Voices" gets some opinions from faux men and women on the street. In this edition they tackle a recent study by British researchers that concluded that playing video games even at an early age does not impact a child's behavior. The lede reads as follows:

"Contrary to popular perceptions that playing video games causes psychological and emotional problems in children, a study of 5-year-olds in the United Kingdom found no correlation between electronic gaming and behavioral issues. What do you think?"

We'll give you one response from one of their fake man-on-the-street comments:

"I don’t care about my child’s well-being." Betsy Scherzinger – Demographer
