Do video games lead children to murder? Or do they simply experience more joy, the more Pokémon they catch? The effects of video gaming have been discussed in Japan for a long time; longer than the startling school massacres at the end of the 1990s; longer than the casual-gaming trends centered around brain training or virtual fitness. The lecture gives an insight in this topic that has been largely neglected in Western academia.
