Role Playing Video games can be Educational
Have you ever thought a videogame can be educational?
Video games are widely known as an excellent source of entertainment, and according to some, they can be of great help as an educational tool because of their interactivity. What a lot of people don"t know is that they can be good for those who play them for fun as well for learning.
There are several genres of video games, for example RPGs, or role-playing games. They often include the task of completing quests. The characters in the game are your party, or your team, and there are frequently three to eight in a game. Though, only some of them may be able to fight at a time, and players have to balance their teams to use all their skills effectively. MMORPGs (Massively-multiplayer online RPG) are online RPGs where people all over the world create custom characters and interact with other people in the game world, joining together to form their own parties and complete quests. In strategy games, the player controls a wide range of characters that they act as tactician for and direct around a map to defeat an enemy or accomplish a mission.
The two main advantages of role playing video games that are (mostly) supported by research are: First of all, puzzle, adventure and words are include in role playing games and can help improve problem solving and logic skills. Adventure RPG games where you have to complete certain goals can also help you to "think outside the box" .Without a goal, the end result of the player"s actions, there"s no point in playing. In many RPG games, the players have several goals over the course of the game that they have to complete before they can win. Without a struggle, the game"s just boring. It"s not fun to walk right through to the end of a game without having to accomplish goals.

Video games have been proven to have a major impact on the mental development of youth, this combined with the natural obsessive nature of youth is dangerous. It is common knowledge that children who play video games have a hard time pulling away from them. So kids who play video games are at danger of becoming addicted to them, should they fall into the addiction it will harm their productivity, attention, learning capabilities, and social development.

Just a note:

With the position you've taken on the resolution, you're currently stating that you are for the position that video games are bad for kids. However, your arguments show that you're against the resolution. You may want to consider cancelling this debate and rebooting it while standing on the proper side.

Just a suggestion. :P
