Are video games really that bad?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of Horizon narrated by Sanjeev Bhaskar looks at the effect that video games have on the human psychology, namely whether they can make people aggressive and if they are addictive. Bhaskar also briefly looks at the possible positive effects that gaming can have. This show brings on a number of guests from various different fields including video game journalists, video game developers, psychologists and doctors. Each guest speaks about their views on the effect of video gaming within their respective fields. The show looks at a number of different studies which have looked into the effect of violent video games. One such study performed by psychologists Craig Anderson and Brad Bushman looked at whether there was a difference between the aggression levels of students after playing violent games compared to non-violent games. They also tested whether violent games could lead to a desensitisation to real life violence. A study run by Dr Andrew Przybylski of the University of Oxford in which participants played the game {u2018}Tetris{u2019} or its significantly harder copy {u2018}Bastet{u2019}, suggests that video games in general could make people aggressive due to a rise in frustration levels, not necessarily because of a desensitisation of violence. Bhaskar also discusses the rise in video game addiction, especially in countries such as South Korea where they have clinics to help young people stop excessive gaming. Towards the end of the episode several studies into the benefits of video games are presented. For example, {u2018}Underground{u2019} helps surgeons practice some of the skills involved with keyhole surgery. Some studies such as one taken at the University of Geneva showed that those who play video games might have a better attention capacity and ability to process visual information. One study found that cognitive functions, as well as memory and attention span are shown to have increased in older participants who regularly started playing video games

Minecraft : the story of Mojang by Paul Owens( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2009, independent video game designer Markus "Notch" Persson released a work in progress that would go on to break every industry rule for achieving success. Part exploratory adventure, part creative building tool, "Minecraft" evolved from a cult classic into an unprecedented hit, raking daily sales in the thousands. By the end 2010, Notch was able to quit his day job and live the dream of founding his own development studio, Mojang. This feature-length documentary follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expands across the world stage industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer) journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), tastemakers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation's most unorthodox success stories"--Container
