* “Video Games: A Cause of Violence and Aggression” from SerendipUpdate's blog. Fri, 01/04/2008.
This site provided basic information about social problems merged with video gamers tendencies. It does raise some important issues about the effect of videogames in our society and status that may be useful for my Recommendation Report. It is a commercial site rather than an academic site, so it provides some internal opinions of the writer and from the public (it’s an open space) which are helpful but not 100% trustful.

Their hypothesis is proved by researches and statistics that are mentioned in the article, they prove current evidence of a substantial connection between exposure to violent video games and serious real-life violence in this article. I personally believe it's a good and effective resource that I can use in my Recommendation Report.
