Pro

All games should be free because so that the students won't have to use real money to buy games like Minecraft, which is very annoying. So that there are more variations of games that students can play.
Arganger

Con

Video games cost money and time to make.

Unless you want to see a heck ton of adds and in game purchases or starving dirt poor video game developers, you don't want that.

I understand that many students cannot afford video games and that stinks, but it isn't the duty of game developers to risk their livelihood just so you can play their game.

Rather students need to be given the freedom and opportunity to work. As of now anyone below the age of eighteen is basically property, if that can change the rest will fall to place.

Looks like StarNight1615 realized that his debate statement was stupid. Nothing in life is free.

If every single video game was free, there would be a video game crash and PC Gaming, Mobile Gaming, and Console Gaming will be killed. Also, since you think nothing should be paid, that means microtransactions will be gone. It would be the end of companies likes Nintendo, Sony, Sega, EA, Activision and almost everybody. How are you supposed to run a company without money? You would need the money just to pay the coders. Sure, indie developers would shine but since gaming would be killed off, they might struggle to make a dollar.

Sadly all Games are puzzles for the mind. The use of self-value of finding an answers means a game by nature can never be free. Only cost less"". In market value.

I felt the same way when some arcade games went to 50 cents...........and pinball moved from a dime to a quarter.

Nothing is free. Someone has to code, design and produce the games, that costs money. Nobody is doing it for free. So no games will never be free.

Stop being a cheapskate and pay for your entertainment or don't play at all
