Reliable/ useable source?

 Yes/no/maybe

Why/ Why not?
www.grandtheftchildhood.com/ No This is likely to be a one-sided perspective, as the site is dedicated to just one game. The site will have a stake in putting a positive spin on the information. It is unlikely to be a very expert view. I’ll be looking for signs of bias.
www.gamesradar.com/ Maybe This is a site for gamers, so they probably give only a single perspective. I might be able to use the information, but I’d need to check it against other sources for accuracy.
Book : “Violence on the screen” by Clive Gifford Yes Books are generally reliable and well researched. I need to check its publication date, though, as information can go out of date quite quickly
www.jesus-is-savior.com No The strong emotive language ( “evil”, “immoral”…) is a clear sign of bias, and the site’s name suggests a very one-sided religious view.
www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2000/04/video-games.aspx Yes The .org is a trustworthy domain name, so the information should be based on research and therefore reliable.
http://copycateffect.blogspot.com No The fact that it is a blog suggests that it is likely to be unreliable, because it is just an individual’s opinion rather than an expert’s opinion.
