A new study shows violent behavior is linked to violent out-bursts and video games. But it is what the player feels during a game, not the game's content. 

Researchers found that a player’s inability to master a game led them to feeling frustrating and angry regardless of what the game’s content is.    

Edward Deci, a professor of psychology from the University of Rochester contributed to the study. He joined Scott Kilbury on Roc City Tonight to talk about the study. To see the interview, press play on the video player.
