Do video games cause violent, aggressive behavior? Can online games help us learn? When it comes to video games, these are often the types of questions raised by popular media, policy makers, scholars, and the general public. In this collection, international experts review the latest research findings in the field of digital game studies and weigh in on the actual physical, social, and psychological effects of video games. Taking a broad view of the industry from the moral panic of its early days up to recent controversies surrounding games like Grand Theft Auto, contributors explore the effects of games through a range of topics including health hazards/benefits, education, violence and aggression, addiction, cognitive performance, and gaming communities. Interdisciplinary and accessibly written, The Video Game Debate reveals that the arguments surrounding the game industry are far from black and white, and opens the door to richer conversation and debate amongst students, policy makers, and scholars alike.

A must have for anyone interested in video games (yes I mean ANYONE!)

As a game design researcher, I was quite curious about this volume. Well...I read the entire volume in one sitting! Most of the texts about video games either focus on game development, game design, game production or game studies theories, I was glad to finally see a book that details the research in various areas. With this volume Kowert and Quandt have created a wonderful edited compilation, in it they provide a substantive yet easily to digest summary of hot topics such as aggression, learning, addiction, gaming communities and others. I also appreciated the balanced approach to video games which they summarize in Chapter 10. The effects of video games are not black and white-either for positive advancement of human life (such as learning) or for moral deterioration (such as aggression in play). Video games are here to stay, and as media influences all aspects of human life it requires continued exploration, research and critique. This is a great read for anyone interested in video games, and it is of particular interest to game studies students and researchers. I believe this volume should be mandatory in all university courses in communication, production and design of media.

Interesting book that I got for one of my university classes. Whether you are a student or just love video games, it puts the subject in a different perspective. I'd recommend it.
Dry, very dry.

I mean... it’s informative, but not really that fun to read. Scientific articles full of numbers and repetitive conclusions. It’s an exhausting read.
Great book on a subject that is relevant to todays media evolution.

It is very refreshing to find a book that has so many experts on a subject that has a limited content on the web. I enjoyed it!
Horrible printing job!!!

I have not read the book yet but when I pay 30+ dollars for a book I expect it to be in good condition. Every page in this book has a line down the middle that is fadded and very difficult to see! Very unfortunate! I do not blame author at all. This is on the publisher!!!
