  14. Key Theory: Bandura – Media Effects Key Question: Do you agree with his theory? Can playing violent video games lead audiences to imitating them in real life? No I do not believe his theory is correct, I believe that it is not down to the video games that are played, I believe it is solely in the mind of the player, sometimes the game is only violent due to players choices. Also committing violent acts in a video game does not mean you are to do those acts away from the game.
