RAMOS, Daniela Karine. Games and moral judgement: a study of adolescents with high school. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.1, pp. 97-112. ISSN 1516-3687.

This study aims to investigate the influence of experiences in virtual worlds resulted from the interaction with computer games has on the moral judgement competence of individuals. For this purpose, the research was developed with a convenience sample consisting of three classes of high school, we applied a questionnaire to identify the profile of the subjects and applied the moral judgement test (MJT). We analyzed 72 answered questionnaires and tests. After statistical analysis of obtained data, did not find significant differences between players and non-players in the relationship for moral judgement. Thus, can be questioned and relativized the influence of electronic games on the moral judgement competence of individuals. This reinforces the idea that the game is only seen as one more element that contributes to the processes of subjectivity, but this cannot be regarded as determinative of the moral qualities of subjects enrolled no study.
