An 8-year-old Louisiana boy intentionally shot and killed his elderly caregiver after playing a violent video game, authorities say. Marie Smothers was pronounced dead at the scene with a gunshot wound to the head in a mobile home park in Slaughter, "Although a motive for the shooting is unknown at this time investigators have learned that the juvenile suspect was playing a video game on the Play Station III 'Grand Theft Auto IV,' a realistic game that has been associated with encouraging violence and awards points to players for killing people, just minutes before the homicide occurred." Teens Kill Child While Acting Out Mortal Kombat BY SUSAN ARENDT 12.20.07 A teenage girl and her boyfriend have been charged with beating the girl’s 7-year-old sister to death while imitating moves from Mortal Kombat. Heather Trujillo, 16, and her boyfriend Lamar Roberts, 17, were babysitting young Zoe and her 3-year-old twin sisters. According to Trujillo, the two teens began practicing Mortal Kombat moves on Zoe, who later died from blunt force trauma to her brain and central nervous system. According to the police, Trujillo admitted that she punched Zoe "in the stomach, karate chopped her lower arms, punched and pinched the victim’s thighs, kicked her in the shins, slapped her stomach and buttocks and poked at the victim’s chest." Roberts told police that Zoe asked the pair to stop hurting her, but that he didn’t because he was drunk. Trujillo and Roberts are being held on $100,000 bail each, and are being charged as adults.

"Eighteen years ago I would have laughed at Trevor’s incessant p**is jokes, Lamar’s stunted vocabulary, and Tracy’s naive sexual posturing. It is important to note, however that I would have laughed at these things not because they are actually funny but because I would have thought I was supposed to laugh at them".

Transcript: The Video Game Presentation: Project for Computer Science 20 By Ekram Nabi and Syed Usama Saeed Scratch was designed by a group named: "Lifelong Kindergarten" at the MIT Media Lab in 2006. This Group is financially supported by the following: -The National Science Foundation -Microsoft -Intel Foundation -MacArthur Foundation -Google, etc. Scratch is a programming language that makes easy to create your own game, animation, music, stories and art. Through this program you can learn mathematical ideas. For what age group did we design for? For kids of age 7 -10, because it is like a math game. Our game can be helpful to learn how to count by five and subtract by five. In the game, when you catch a devil egg you lose 5 points.When you get a good egg you gain 5 points. How did we get to know about scratch? We have tried different gaming programs like Unity 3D and Game maker 8.1. One of the programs were Unity 3D, it was at a more advanced level. So we could not understand this program because it used a lot java. Why choosing scratch? Scratch is a program that was at a very basic level, exactly what we actually needed because it had built-in commands which made it fairly simple to understand and make. Commands for the game Now, It's time to present our game! To start our game : 1) open the dropbox 2) go to Ms. Pihowich's file 3) then go to semester 2 4)go to computer science 20 5) open the folder named Scratch 6) then open the application with a cat face named "Scratch" 7)Drag and drop the file name "FINAL PROJECT ;egg game" which is located in the scratch folder Thank you for giving us your attention hopefully you have enjoyed it ! Please give us Feedback Once you finished the game: 1) go to Ekram and Syed's file. 2) Open the word Document and click the link to give us feedback. We use “set x” command to move the object horizontally; this command also allows the object to be on the surface and to move the object side to side. We use score command to set up the winning and losing scores. This command is used to tell the sprite when to do something. we use this command to keep the action in progress until another action happens We use “set y” command to move the objects vertically, we use this command to set the axis of the object that makes it fall at a specific speed and point. When the green flag is clicked then the commands are activated for that specific script We place this command to tell the object to jump at any location of the stage vertically and horizontally. This command is used If the object touch something then perform this action. The purpose of this command is to stop the action for a specific time.
Transcript: Exploring The Influence of Video Games on Human Behavior: Violence, Gender Representation, and Socialization Research supports that video games potentially prime both negative and positive influences on behavior These games are assigned a rating symbol suggesting age appropriateness and content descriptors listing elements in a game that may have warranted a particular rating by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). Activist blame the use of violent video games for the Columbine School shootings. Eric Harris was a fan of the video game “Doom” Doom is rated for mature audiences, and its content descriptors are blood, gore, and intense violence. Video games were immediately blamed for the shooters violent behavior at the Virginia Tech Shooting. Seung-Hui Cho went on a shooting rampage killing 32 people and wounding 25 before committing suicide. Eventually, the Virginia Tech Review Panel (2007) found that Seung-Hui Cho, the shooter did not play violent video games at all. People who are vulnerable to the affects of video games are: temperamental uncontrolled concerned with their own pleasures People who are least likely to be affected by video games are: easy going have goals self-disciplined work toward the well-being of others This suggest that video games alone can’t be blamed for violent behaviors but rather the individuals characteristics Females sexualized/eroticized Often portrayed as hookers or prostitues OR Visions of beauty Need to be saved (damzel in distress Character are more realistic Males Powerful/hostile Overly Muscular Aggressive attitude Take on traditional male sex roles Dill and Thill Study 1 Still Photographs of characters and violent scenes. Raters coded 479 images Participants viewed images and then identified them as aggressive, sexualized, or stereotypical portrayals. Dill and Thill Findings 60% Females sexualized (8%) Males sexualized 40% Females Scantily Clad 82.6% Males = aggressive 62.2% Females= aggressive 33.1% Stereotypical Masculine 62.6% Stereotypical Feminine Dill and Thill Study 2 Survey 49 Freshmen "Have you ever looked at a video game magazine?" Open ended questions "Describe a typical male/female character" Findings 37% had looked at a magazine (63% had not) Video games were played 1.8 hours a week Most common word for males: "muscular" Most common word for females: "big boobs" Top characteristics: (M) power, aggression, hostile attitude Top characteristics: (F) sexual, attitude, bitchy Conclusion: Violence is cool and accepted. Can promot rape schemas and patriarchial views. Women are sexualized and objectified. Gender Swapping Hussain and Griffiths looked at socialization of gamers. Specifically in MMORPG's (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) (i.e. WOW, Everquest, Final Fantasy) Positive correlation between interpersonal relationships, social anxiety, and high hours online. The Study: Posted questionaire in chat forums Ages: 18-69 83 = males 69% 32= females 26% Questions were : How many hours do you spend playing games online per week/ per session. Does gaming satisfy your social needs? Why do you swap genders (for video game characters)? Prosocial Video Games Greitemeyer and Osswald, 2010 found that there was a correlation between playing prosocial video games and helping behaviors. Cite the GLM (General Learning Module) that supports the idea that exposure to violence promotes violence. They thought that the same could be applied with prosocial games. Experiment 1 Helping behavior was measured 54 Students played either an aggressive, prosocial, or neutral video game for 8 min followed by a questionaire. Did students help pick up pencils after the experimenter spilled them on the floor? 67% = Prosocial 33% = Neutral 28% = Agrressive We can assume that prosocial games promote prosocial behaviors. Experiment 2 Agreeableness with assistance was measured Aggressive game was not used. 40 students played either a prosocial or a neutral game for 10 min followed by a questionaire. Students were asked if they would help a graduate student with their research. 100% = Prosocial 68%= Neutral Experiment 3 High risk consequence helping behavior was measured 36 students played a prosocial game or a neutral game for 8 min followed with a questionnaire. This time, a male “ex-boyfriend” was harassing the female experimenter. Intervention of the students was measured. 56% = Prosocial 22% = Neutral Again, we can assume that prosocial games promote prosocial behaviors Experiment 4 Wanted to measure the relationship of prosocial games to prosocial thoughts Research has proven that aggressive video games promote aggressive thoughts and instigates aggressive behavior. However, little research has been done on prosocial games promoting positive cognition. 37 students played either a prosocial video game or a neutral video game for 8 min. The experimenter then asked the students to write down their thoughts while playing the game. While explaining this, the experimenter
