It was predicted that participants playing an amoral video game (Grand Theft Auto IV) when motivated by an opportunity to win a gift certificate based on recall of gameplay would cheat more than participants playing a neutral video game (Hexic).



      Grand Theft Auto IV is an open world game where the player can drive cars and cause as much violence as they wish.

      There is no limit to what crimes they can commit and if the police come they can attempt to flee or kill any officers chasing the player.

      The game rewards the player with weapons and armor if they kill certain people or commit certain crimes.

      Hexic is a puzzle game that focuses on matching same colored pieces by rotating them left or right.

      When three or more same colored pieces are grouped they disappear.

      When all the pieces disappear the player completes the level and advances to the next one.
