President Trump hosted a meeting today about the link between video games and violence. Two people from the gaming industry had seats at the table, including an executive from the company behind Grand Theft Auto. The rest of the group was made up of people who link gaming to aggression and violence, including members of parental watch groups and politicians. This conversation seems to pop up every time there’s a school shooting. But researchers haven’t found conclusive links between video games and acts of violence in real life.
