The Onion Takes Aim at British Video Game Research

An amusing edition of comedy site The Onion's "American Voices" gets some opinions from faux men and women on the street. In this edition they tackle a recent study by British researchers that concluded that playing video games even at an early age does not impact a child's behavior. The lede reads as follows:

"Contrary to popular perceptions that playing video games causes psychological and emotional problems in children, a study of 5-year-olds in the United Kingdom found no correlation between electronic gaming and behavioral issues. What do you think?"

We'll give you one response from one of their fake man-on-the-street comments:

"I don’t care about my child’s well-being." Betsy Scherzinger – Demographer
