Chantz Delgado Journal Entry #8 April 11, 2011 David, Ronald M. “Addressing the Epidemic of Video Game Overuse.” Opinion  AMA  Leader Commentary; Pg. 27 Vol. 51 N.19. American Medical News.  http://www.lexisnexis.com.proxy.bc.edu/hottopics/lnacademic/? April 11,  2011. This article is pertaining to the health issues involving an overuse of video game  playing. Studies say that playing video games can help health issues such as stroke  rehabilitation, patient education, and therapy in moderating certain phobias. Games such  as “Dance Dance Revolution” is used to combat youth obesity and thus, is part of some  schools. However, it supports both sides of the argument in that it gives cases where  video games has a negative effect on the physical aspect of one’s body. Kooijmans, Thomas A. “Effects of Video Games on Aggressive Thoughts and               Behaviors During Development.” Personality Research. Last Modified in  December 2004. http://www.personalityresearch.org/papers/kooijmans.html April 11,  2011. This article speaks about the effects video games has on one’s brain and how it  leads to humans reacting in aggressive ways. Many school shootings was related to video  games. This article gives the example of the shooting at Columbine High School. Many  video games have been severely censored and frown upon due to these various links to  such incidents.
