Is gaming harmful to our minds
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept your challenge to this touchy topic. I will be unbiased and factual as possible.
Please note that I myself am a gamer and will provide personal experiences and statistics to prove my point.
This is my first debate so I will try my best.
I believe that there are cold hard facts. statistics and enough personal experience evidence to prove that video games are harmful in my next post or (Opening Argument) I will provide thaes key elements-
fool1602 forfeited this round.
Im sorry that you forfeited the round. Hopefully you can give a rebuttal next round.
Thats alot of kids who play! Anyway to prove my point a majority of teenagers play video games. How can this be harmfull? Well the shooters at Colubine were gamers. There is proof that violent video games can instigate more agression in to people.

Assertion Two-Personal Experience & Tue Storys-On the morning of 1990 April 20th the two shooters of Colubine High School shot to death 12 students, a teacher, and themselves. They were "gamers" Also""A British man who bought one of the first copies of "Grand Theft Auto V"was stabbed, hit with a brick and robbed of the brutally violent new
video game on Tuesday, police said."A crime motivated by the game? Was a video game really worth stabing and injuring an innocent man for?
Is there a bit of a correlation of the storys and statistics? Personally I feel slightly more agrresive after playing vidoe games. Of course I never would kill or hurt someone over a game but others have. Certainly games can be fun but if played to frequently and excesivley then it can be harmful.
Assertion Three-Studys-According to Iowa State University aggression can be caused over video games. (See first link) Also the cons seem to outweigh the pros according to this article
Even the New York Times looked in to this-
VideoGames that are violent correlate with agressivness and violence in people. Video games can be harmfull to people and others if played to often. Parents should monitor and control what there kids can play and people shuld see the potentiol harm in some games.
