You will be taking the position of how violent video games do cause violent acts and we will have an argument. Please, if you're smart, provide facts or examples, because nobody cares in the real world about opinion. Overall, let's have a fun debate.

This is simple enough to dispute. Can video games cause children to be violent. The simple answer is yes, they can. They may not be the soul cause of youth violence, but they can cause children to commit violent acts.

Recent studies show that kids exposed to video games with immense amounts of violence often become null and display more aggressive behavior and violent tendencies such as fighting [1].

So Con is completely wrong. He says video games cannot cause violent acts. There is no evidence to support this. Some video games can help promote learning and cognitive development, but there are also violent games that can null children to violence and make them more aggressive and violent all around.

This is a clear and easy topic to defend
