They say it's because gamers are exposed to violence (which is not true), but I think it's because we are used to actively participating in a suspended states of reality.
Another notch on video games.

  • I dunno but I've been gaming since forever and I have played very violent games. The frequency of my nightmares went from frequent, to rare to now nonexistent. I may have had like on or two last year but that's about it.

  • It's not that "gamers" (how I hate that word) aren't exposed to violence - most major games these days are violent. It's just that most people are stable enough to not be affected by it.
