I am looking to conduct a study of my own. No, I am not looking to be as inhumanly perfect as I can. Some data will be better than any data. Once I put my findings out, as the scientific process has shown, someone can easily dismiss my findings if they conduct their own. Scrutiny [i]is[/i] science.

Help me develop this hypothesis so that it remains reasonably testable. Yes, I could do a very very comprehensive experiment, but I don't have the resources. What can I do that is within bounds of a small budget, and is as unbiased as possible?

Can one be influenced by a video game?

Children with developed cognitive abilities will exhibit behaviors of projection regardless of a media’s context. This projection will likely be inherently violent due to social context.

An equal number of boys and girls ages 5-10 will be given 3 media experiences in which their reactions will be recorded. The children will be sampled in isolation, groups of 3, and with an adult present.

Media 1: Television

Children will be asked to watch a video of a protagonist having a menial item taken from them by an antagonist. The video will then ask how the protagonist is going to react.

Media 2: Picture Book

Children will be shown a picture book about bullying. The last page will ask them to draw or explain the rest of the story.

Media 3: Videogame

Children will be asked to play a videogame in which the antagonist is Noah who is traveling through his arc, collecting animals. Goats are pacified with food projectiles. (Re-skin of doom engine.)
