Video games work on eye/hand coordination. It also works on your reflexes and reaction times.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro actually described some benefits video games provide, which Con did not refute. Con inadvertently listed a benefit for video games by saying they're entertaining. Con also failed to show why "Parks filled with pokemon trainers" are a negative, especially since the whole point of the game is to "Get people outside to socialize".
