Are Violent Video Games Contributing To the Declining Crime Rate?

A new academic paper suggests that the proliferation of violent videos games over the past 20 years has contributed to the more than 50 percent decrease in violent crime over that time period.

Comparing 2011 Game Graphics With Atari

I'm amazed with how much game graphics have improved in the last 20-30 years.  First there was the Atari, then Nintendo, Sega, Playstation and Xbox.  This video is from a new game coming this fall called "Battlefield 3".  It's a mission where your in a tank and destroying any enemy in sight.  I personally can't wait for this to come out as it has quite a few people talking about it.

Now compare that video with other tank games from back in the day.  Compare it with "Tank" for the atari which made it's debut in 1974.  It's truly astonishing to see how far we have come in the gaming industry.  Even with the Sega and Nintendo.  When the Playstation and Xbox made their debut I was amazed with those graphics and now as I look back I wondered what games would look like in 2010.
