Abstract  

Meta-analytic procedures were used to test the culture differences of violent video games on aggressive cognition for children and adolescents. Twenty four researches were identified with a total sample size of 2449 participants. The results showed that: (1) The average effect size of violent video game exposure was 0.23. The effect size for children and adolescents approached to middle level. This suggested that exposure to violence video games in a causal risk factor for increased aggressive cognition. (2) Moderator analysis found that average effect size of western culture was bigger than eastern culture. Culture actually was an important moderator variable for effect of violent video game, collectivistic values, high moral discipline showed lower levels of aggression than individualism culture. (3) Average effect size of primary school students was bigger than the other. Violent video game probably had most powerful influence to primary school students. (4)There was no significant difference among different measuring methods.
