Video Games: A Popular Culture Phenomenon by Arthur Asa Berger

Berger begins by tracing the evolution of video games from simple games like Pong to new, powerfully involving & complex ones. A unique dimension of the book is its bio-psycho-social analysis of the video game phenomenon. Berger considers the impact of these games on their players, from physical changes (everything from neurological problems to obesity) to psychological consequences, with reference to violence & sexual attitudes. In his conclusion, Berger concentrates on the role of violence in video games & whether they generate a sense of alienation in certain addicted players who become estranged from family & friends.
