Many video games are not as harmful to players as is publicly presented, when moderation is used.

Video games are no where near as harmful to the players as is publicly portrayed. Although there are downsides to video games, there are many good qualities also. There have been studies done that prove that video games increases the functions of the frontal lobe, cerebellum, and the Thalamus.

While that is try studies have also been shown that people that play video games have issues with them like they become paranoid, lessened vision, and possible weight gain... they also tend to be very aggressive if they have to stop or are interrupted, which could be that they become obsessed over the game they are playing.

likespeace is right. How harmful are you claiming video games are not, exactly?

If you were to define a particular public statement or set of public statements, then an intelligent debate could be had about whether they are more or less harmful than that group is presenting.

"Many video games are not as harmful to players as is publicly presented, when moderation is used."

As is publically presented by whom? There are groups that publically present that video games are very harmful, and groups who publically present they are not harmful at all.

5 Rounds is far too much, you're going to be hard pressed to find someone willing to accept this.
