    I usually get pretty pissed playing violent video games such as COD4, seriously, if i get shot in the back or get shot as soon as i spawn, i want to kill someone.

    I play Cod 4. but i somethimes get pissed of of lowbird nadelaunchers and such, but my violence doesn't come from the blood or warthing....

    Play Viva Pinata. It rocks and is one of the most un-violent games there are out there

    It depends what game, WOW isn't really that aggresive of a game. UT3 should be perfect for the job.

    Yeah, WoW wasn't really the best game to use to test this. I'd probably redo it with a more violent game if I were them.

    I agree to a certain extent. Many violent games can provide relief and relaxation because of the intensity of the game; everything is put into the game. Gamers are less likely to put their aggression into reality because the exaggerated situations in games will draw the peak of their emotions. Hence, compared to that emotion, the experiences in reality are just small matters.
    Furthermore, if you lose in a game, it's just a game, who cares? If you win, woohoo! (This doesn't apply for typical sore losers >.<)
