Violence in video games has been a major topic since this past year ended, but it seems as though EA gaming developers may be starting to think about what they can do about this ongoing discussion.
According to a report from Polygon on Wednesday, EA CEO John Riccitiello said he believes this industry is more responsible than most people would blindly assume.
"The game industry is a very mature, responsible industry, more so than you might otherwise imagine.
"First off, we are very confident in the quality of our content and that lack of an actual factual linkage to any of the actual violence that takes place in America or markets around the world.
"The point is that direct studies have been done, hundreds of millions of dollars of research has been done, and has been unable to find a linkage because there isn't one," Riccitiello said.
Riccitiello went on to say that even though gaming has been ridiculed many times for the violence, they all have every intention of being a part of the solution.
"Ours is an industry with an association that has risen to that call many times before. We are responsible, we are mature, we intend to be part of the solution.
"Our media reaches literally every American, and that can be used as a voice for good. We can be part of that solution, and we're ready to step up to do that," Riccitiello said.
