Should Minors Be Allowed to Purchase M-Rated Games?

avamcgee22
cha-the-politician

A lot of kids I know play M-rated games. This trend seems to start around middle school, which I believe is a giant factor of behavior. Games like Call of Duty and Halo simulate very gory and gruesome situations. Could this be the cause of violence, depression and negative change in children? I think it is clear that the answer is yes. Kids play games AS an actual character, and if they are addicted or into it enough, they feel like their actions are real. Shooting someone is very inappropriate,...

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms?

Debate999
kasmic

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms? The answer, yes. Jefferson said "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have." So giving up our guns would be feeding the government, they would only grow. A government that is to powerful will lead to chaos and dictation. Who will you feed, the government or the people? Feeding the government gives them a change to throw away all the good that the founding Fathers made f...

License suspension is appropriate for DUI

Clyde2337
Spedunkle

80% of people who receive DUI's have a history of major alcohol problems (http://www.williamwhitepapers.com/pr/2007HardCoreDrinkingDriverProfile.pdf). Up to 65% have lifelong pyschiatric problems (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2359227/). Therefore, license suspension tends to affect people with addiction problems and/ or mental illness. Although it is cruel to disproportionately punish people who have serious problems via license suspension, it could be rationalized IF there was...

Does God Exist?

RookieApologist
Envisage

Round 1 is for acceptance. Round 2 is for opening statements and arguments. Round 3 is for rebuttals. Round 4 is for additional rebuttals. Round 5 is for closing statements - no new information or arguments. BoP - Debate topic is in the form of a question, so both sides have the BoP. This is done so CON will also need to provide arguments for his position and not merely find faults in PRO's position. This allows for a more intriguing and informative debate....

Terraria(pro) vs Minecraft(con)

Darth_Dreavas
Shyro

Hello, I am new to this site, but don't take that as this being an easy win. I am willing to debate than Terraria is superior to Minecraft. Rules: 1. Sales will not be taken into account. If sales determined how good a game is then Wii Sports would be better than both of these games. 2. Wikipedia is not a valid source, but the wikis of both games are. (unless it is simply absurd information) The rounds must go like this. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2-4: Arguments and rebuttals. Round 5...
