According to a new study, playing football [This means “soccer” here] video games makes people more violent than playing shooting video games.
I don’t know about soccer, but I will say that by far the most angered I have ever been with a video game was when playing an (American-style) football game. I think it’s mostly the time issue. If you can’t get past something in Quake, you can always save and come back. With a sports game, it’s possible to play for a while, go right down to the very end thinking you’ll win, and then lose at the last second because of
the AI cheating bad luck.
