Violent video games lead to … co-operation?

Playing violent video games doesn’t make kids behave violently in the real world – they make them learn to co-operate with others, according to a new study.

As most experienced gamers will tell you, it’s not aggression that leads to victory, it’s teamwork.

A research group from the University of Gothenburg, in Sweden, came to the same conclusion after spending hundreds of hours playing violent games and observing other gamers. The group focused on games that depicted violence and aggressive action in which players had to fight with and against each other.
