    Abstract

    Grounded in General Aggression Model, this study investigated the serial and complex mechanism of impact of violent video games exposure (VVGE) on aggression in both online and offline environments through Chinese adults. Results indicated that the following focal mechanisms existed between VVGE and aggression: (1) the mediating roles of motivation of violence rewards, (2) the chain mediating effects of motivation of violence rewards and normative beliefs about aggression, and (3) the moderating roles of gender.
