Our Abiding Fear of the New: Computer Games and Controversy

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlePopular

Abstract

Even though these claims have been disproven in many studies on the subject, 2015 saw the return of anti-games arguments and/or unsubstantiated claims about the negative effects of games and game violence on the human psyche. In this article, I want to argue that fear of the new often causes such claims, looking especially at previous controversies related to computer games to show that histoire se répète.
