Is there a correlation between video games and violence

Youve heard what the people say, "video games create and establish violence in the players head". As far as im concerned i havent once wanted to lash out at a human in my life due to what i just played on my xbox in my room. A related post about this subject in our class posted a video that poked fun at a video game player lashing out after an online encounter. In my personal opinion on the video posted in our class blog, the man seemed to be more lashing out at the fact that a human being on the other line of the headset. The guy has seemingly had problems with bullying which is understandable due to the fact that he is severely overweight and has definitely had issues with his peers. The media has always tried to tie in the two ideas of video games and violence and mush them into one. The fact of the matter is that level headed people that play video games shouldn't be lumped into the category as a violent sociopath due to the amount of time they spend on internet video games. Theres never scientifically been a reason showing that video games cause a person to be seemingly violent. All just speculations.
