this study is to look at Sigmund Froiud's defense mechanism of displacement.
Are Video Games a good way to "let off steam?"
Are certain types video games better suited for this than others?

some problems that may arises are only having a small pool of volunteers
volunteer bias skewing the data, and only being able to gather a small quantity of data.

I believe that video games will show as a reliable example of the demonstration of this defense mechanism.

to test this i will review the results of the survey posted below and i will conduct an experiment were subjects takes an mood assessment test plays a selected video game for thirty minutes then takes the mood assessment test again.
