Reality Bytes - article by Henry Jenkins

Interesting article posted by PBS and written by MIT Media and Comparative Studies professor Henry Jenkins debunks eight myths about video games. The myths include game availability and youth violence, violent game play and youth aggression, children as the primary market for video games, girls playing computer games, impact between training soldiers to kill and kids playing games, games as a not a meaningful form of expression, how game play is socially isolating, and finally how game play is desensitizing. The article also includes interesting links to articles and websites under the Sources at the bottom of the article. Jenkins' website is also worth a glace.
