Video Games Contribute to Future Risk

According to German research, there is a direct link between aggressive and dangerous driving behavior and racing video games. The findings show that both men and woman take greater risks while driving after playing virtual racing games, and that even those who played less frequently showed an increase in risk taking while on the road. The American Psychological Association published the German experiments results in the March issue of Experimental Psychology: Applied.

With an eye on the future, researchers conclude that children who begin playing these games at a young age may actually adopt riskier behavioral patterns. These patterns, which develop over the years, suggest that in the future, individuals who spent significant time playing these games will hold a greater risk of being involved in accidents.
