Violent Video Games May Numb Players to Violence and Create Stress

A new study suggests that male teens that play violent video games are more stressed than those who don’t play violent games. Researchers monitored 30 boy ages 13-15 and found that those that consumed more violence slept worse, had more anxiety and were more stressed. The study’s authors also wrote that these types of games could desensitize players to violence too, reported HealthDay News.
