MAVAV was launched in December of 2002 with high hopes of raising awareness of the hidden dangers associated with video games:
- Video games are addictive,
1 in every 9 gamers are already addicted.
- Video games have led to an epidemic of youth violence all across the world.
- Video games are socially isolating and desensitizing.
- Video games are an inherently inferior medium to film and literature.
Our goal is to document the harmful effects of video games and its devastating impact in our culture.
