Abstract: Plenty of researches have been done in negative effects brought by violent and non-violent video games, which are argued scholarly from other researching on positive effects coming with the development of general learning model. Upon the negative effects on video games, we summarized the arguments in four aspects which are the disassociation between theoretical researches and practical situations, the dissent on designs and methods, the narrow range of studies and conflictive conclusions. The predictive studies are demonstrated in the positive effects on video games, and extensive longitudinal studies are also discussed.

Key words: video games, theoretical model, negative effect
