to games where one player boxed or used karate vs. another human, now the fighting has become so violent that upon punching the opponent?s! head, it will explode -blood spattering the virtual world- (e.g. DOOM for the IBM-Compatibles). This is a trend which should perhaps be studied in relation to aggression levels. It may do well for the public to note that although video games are getting more violent, films at the movie theaters by far lead them in this aspect, as well as their sexual content. It is possible that violence being so commonplace in the movies, downplays the aggression cues in video games and therefore after having watched a particularly violent film, seeing computerized renditions of violence are not as significant in comparison. For the most part, however, it

has been demonstrated that the concern of video games turning players into violent individuals that aggress against others in the real world is not a supported theory by these studies. Berkowitz, L.
