We asked researcher Cheryl Olson, co author of Grand Theft Childhood and an attendee at last week's meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, to share her thoughts.This week, President Old School RS Gold Obama called for "research into the effects that violent video Runescape games have on young minds." "We don't benefit from ignorance," he said in a nationally televised speech. "We don't benefit from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence."Aren't there enough studies already? At Vice President Biden's meeting with researchers and Runescape game industry representatives on January 11, I heard a member of the video Runescape game industry insist that research proves there's no link between video Runescape games and violence. The Supreme Court settled this. Some researchers insist that there's evidence of a "causal link" between violent video Runescape games and aggression. So, what do we know, and where are we still in the dark? And why do those media violence researchers continue to debate and disagree? To answer this, let me explain how I got entangled in this debate, how research works and what it shows, and what this means for Runescape game developers. The research I've been involved inAround 2002, a Congressman saw news about Grand Theft Auto 3, worried it was degrading our society and promoting youth violence, and ultimately made funds available to study this through the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. I wrote a proposal and won a $1.5 million grant to study the effects of violent video Runescape games on middle school kids. At the time, all I knew about video Runescape games came from watching my son play Pokemon and StarCraft. My expertise was in media influences on health; I'd produced videos on health and medicine before returning to grad school. This is typical. There's no central organization out there that decides what researchers ought to study. Somebody a government, foundation, corporation, or private rs gold individual makes funds available to study a topic, or a researcher has a study idea
