Violence on television and in movies has already proven to trigger aggression. This is true for video games as well. A recently conducted research has proven that gamers who are more into violent video games are prone to be more aggressive in real life. An international panel of experts revealed that exposure to violence on television; movies and even video games can lead to an increase in aggressive behavior.
Action, adventure games use a lot of blood and gore to make the gaming experience exciting for gamers. On top of it, the use of high definition graphics has given the gaming characters a lifelike appearance, increasing gamers’ capacity to remain unperturbed by the violence.
An International Society for Research on Aggression (IRSA) conducted research that suggested that people who are exposed to violent television programs and online video games are more like to show aggressive behavior in their day to day dealings. The increased exposure to all the violence makes the impulse to act upon violent thoughts and feelings stronger.
Many previously conducted research studies have voiced the same findings made on a number of reports produced over the years. Another study shows that many games that portray gore and blood and a lot of violence make some of the most popular games amongst gamers. Fighting, action, adventure games, which put gamers into the position of a character with big guns, are more likely to trigger aggressive behavior in them in their real life.
The research has emphasized the need of putting a muzzle on the violence showed on television and in movies where all of the unnecessary killings are said to be harmful to the public at large, harboring more violent behavior in the people. Violence or action is a huge selling point for video games and so whether or not game developers would pay any heed to the findings of this study is hard to say.

The watch was never meant to attach itself to Ben 10. It was always supposed to be found by Max, Ben’s Grandpa, and attached itself to Ben in error due to DNA similarities.
