Do video game cause violence?
Debate Rounds (3)
a. It was just a small levels of aggression, due to frustration.
B. The gamers were mostly paid.
C. Sometimes researchers were so desperate, they would even run test on retarded people.
2. Comic books, and movies were blamed
3. Youth crimes are down since video games.
4. Japan, and The Netherlands citizens view and play more violent video games then US citizen and crime is very low there. But here crime is way higher.
5. Even most people who don't play video games, knows that video games are not responsible. If video Games cause violence, why didn't congress ban IT? Because, It's unconstitutional, and the idea makes no sense.
6. Many people would say:".... They enjoy playing these games and aren't honest about the harm they can cause."
I think people would see that happening.
7. The problem with people who blame video games for violence don't think normally. Out of:
It has to be the video games?
8. No well-known video game store, I know of video would sell a rated M video game to a minor. In fact most encourage parents to use parental control which next gen or, middle age console.
All I hear about how the army has simulator suits, that are just like video games.
This is so inaccurate:
a. These simulation suits are for ACTUALLY training soldiers how to kill with combat, shooting techniques. With video games you, just move your thumbs.
B. These simulation test don't affect soldiers, and soldiers before they're enrolled in the army, they get a mental checkup.
C. Some games nowadays do require movement, but does:
MMA training make me a MMA fighter?
Does Black tail make me a soldier?
Does NFL 25 make me a football player?
Does Kinect adventure make me a great sports man?
No right, so how does GTA 5 make me a killer?
9. Violence has existed way before video games and TV were released.
Check the history ooks
10.Who's afraid of a gamer? No one.
11. There's too much proof that there's no evidence:
GTA depicts you running around killing people left and right and basically doing whatever you want so somebody who might not be mentally stable will be interested in doing this himself and begin a crime scene in which many people would end up hurt.
Not saying all video games are bad they offer some good things; stress relief and a way to escape reality, but there are people out there that aren't trusted and will bring this "escape" into reality.
The things depicted in games can also influence young children or people seeing drugs, alcohol, murder, etc. can possibly make theem think it's ok to do those things and then perform said things which might cost alot of money to repair
a. GTA 5 was blamed for 2 shootings, The sandy hook massacre and the navy yard shooting. But you want to want's extremely weird about this accusation, GTA 5 was not released at the time the sandy hook massacre, and the navy yard shooter had the skills to pull it off the attack. So he was taught how to kill people by military like training, by a real person.
b. People blame video games sometimes, so they don"t have to take responsibility. But guess what? The government never falls for their foolish accusations.
c. Let me bring up this case, and see if any of you believe this idiot of kid:
I personally don"t believe that kid at all. So kid goes on a plane that takes him from Minneapolis to Las Vegas, and he says he thought he was playing GTA 5? Right" he just didn't want to get in trouble, but he failed in the process
d. 4. Japan, and The Netherlands citizens view and play more violent video games then US citizen and crime is very low there. But here crime is way higher.
"GTA depicts you running around killing people left and right and basically doing whatever you want so somebody who might not be mentally stable will be interested in doing this himself and begin a crime scene in which many people would
end up hurt."
2.Sure, and NBA 2k14 makes me a professional basketball player. The one thing you did say that was accusation was:
"somebody who might not be mentally stable will be interested"
Yes exactly, not somebody with sense. But if you assume video games make people violent what video games did these groups/people play?
The KKK in the 1900
Ivan The terrible
The Bloods in the 60"s
The Crips in the 60"s
King Hennery the 8
The people who enslaved the Africans
The America Mafia in the 30"s in 40"s
I could go on forever
If your assumption was true we"d see that.
3.Most kids, don"t reenact games this generation. In fact most kids are too mature, for their own ages.
Besides youth crimes down:
I"m sorry but your entire argument is completely shut down.
ElCoyote forfeited this round.
Rahsmoove forfeited this round.
