Do Video Games Actually Cause Violent Behaviour Online Safety Guide

Published 9th October 2019

Since the dawn of video games there have been questions asked about their potential link to violent or disruptive behaviour in people, and in particular, young people.

Thankfully, in today’s age we actually have a much more solid idea of what the link between the two looks like, and whether or not we should be concerned. In this guide, we’ll look at the arguments both for and against the idea that video games cause violent behaviour.
