Violence and video games

Does violence in videos games make people more violent?

(probably thinks so...I haven't watched the whole video).

http://mises.org/daily/3528 ("Video Games and Violence" by Art Carden) Does NOT think so.

Well, if I loose at my game I get very violent and can destroy up to two cartons of donuts in my rage.
