Dr Nick Robinson on violence in video games

02 August 2011 |

Nick Robinson, lecturer in politics and expert on the politics of video games talks to BBC Radio Leeds on violence in video games and the impact it has on young people.

During a BBC Radio Leeds debate 'do violent images impact on our children later in life?', Dr Robinson suggests that a major concern is that parents are allowing children to play age inappropriate games, which include extremely violent and graphic images.

He comments that over the past 25 to 30 years, video games have become increasingly violent and that despite classifications, parents are becoming more tolerant and young people are being exposed to more.
