Not only is there a clear link between videogame violence and aggression, there is also strong evidence that this relationship is causal (i.e., playing violent videogames causes aggression). Many of the studies which have tested this hypothesis have used experimental methodology, which allows for stronger conclusions of causality to be made than correlational research, though correlational and experimental research on media violence yields similar effect sizes (Anderson et al., 2004; see Figure 3.4). There is also some 77

Edward L. Swing and Craig A. Anderson evidence based on longitudinal studies that repeated exposure to violent videogames increases aggression over time (Anderson et al., 2007). Despite such evidence of the causal nature of the relationship between violent videogames and aggression, there is a particularly large amount of resistance by many people to accept this relationship. This is due, in large part, to the differences in the usage of the concept of causality between media violence researchers and the general public. Scientific researchers in many disciplines use the concept of causality in a probabilistic fashion. That is, if a particular variable influences the likelihood that some specific outcome will occur, it can be said to cause that outcome. Another commonly used form of causality is necessary and sufficient causality. Necessary causality means that a given outcome can only occur if a particular level of a specific variable is present. Sufficient causality means that if that particular level of the variable is present, the outcome will always be produced. People generally do not have trouble accepting probabilistic causality in medical contexts. For example, it is widely accepted that smoking cigarettes causes cancer, despite the fact that this relationship clearly does not match the necessary and sufficient form of causality. Not everyone who smokes cigarettes gets cancer (indicating that smoking is not a sufficient cause of cancer) and not everyone who gets cancer has smoked cigarettes (indicating that smoking is not a necessary cause of cancer). But many non-scientists (and many scientists as well) have difficulty applying probabilistic causality to social psychological contexts, especially when the causal relationship is one which they find disfavorable. Many cigarette smokers and the tobacco industry once used the necessary and sufficient form of causality to argue against the effects of cigarette smoking on cancer. The same type of argument is now used by some videogame players and the videogame industry to discount the causal effect of videogame violence on aggression. Thus, we hear obviously invalid arguments of the form: I ve played violent videogames [smoked cigarettes] for many years, and have never killed anyone [have not gotten lung cancer]. Therefore, playing violent videogames [smoking cigarettes] cannot cause aggression [lung cancer]. Research has shown the effect of videogame violence on aggression to be moderately strong (see Figure 3.5). The effect size of this relationship is sufficient to warrant public concern. To put this effect size into perspective, note that it is larger than effect sizes found for the impact of asbestos exposure on cancer, the effect of homework on grades, calcium intake on bone mass, nicotine patch use on smoking cessation, lead exposure on reductions in children s IQ, secondhand smoke on cancer, and condom use on succeptibility to HIV (Anderson et al., 2004). These effects serve as useful comparisons for the videogame violence effects, in that all of these effects are of general public concern (see Figure 3.6). The relationship between 78
