Hi, CCHL,

If you're looking for how to interpret your results, you could look at an article on APA's website:

Violent Video Games: Myths, Facts, and Unanswered Questions
http://www.apa.org/science/about/psa/2003/10/anderson.aspx

Dr. Anderson notes that most teens are affected -- not just teens who might be more inclined to violence -- so you could analyze how he explains this.  (It's also a very interesting article!)

Good luck!

I think that violent videogames are a bad influence on teenagers because they can make some teenagers more unfriendly, especially those who are less fussy and easily angered. For others, it can offer hope to learn new skills and improve civil networking. Video games provide a different type of exposure to violence than a teen would get from watching a violent movie.
