Video games are frowned upon by parents as time-wasters, and worse, some education experts think that these games corrupt the brain. Playing violent video games are easily blamed by the media and some experts as the reason why some young people become violent or commit extreme anti-social behavior. But many scientists and psychologists find that video games can actually have many benefits " the main one is making kids smart. Video games may actually teach kids high-level thinking skills that they will need in the future."Video games change your brain," according to University of Wisconsin psychologist C. Shawn Green. Playing video games change the brain"s physical structure the same way as do learning to read, playing the piano, or navigating using a map. Much like exercise can build muscle, the powerful combination of concentration and rewarding surges of neurotransmitters like dopamine strengthen neural circuits that can build the brain.

He states himself. His harms must outweigh these benefits in the further rounds.

Just on a side note: The debate title and Pro's choice to be... Pro, I'd say, the Instigator is supporting the ban. Reading the intro-statement; I doubt it.

@KickerED please make clear what side you are on and whether or not you want the first round to be an acceptance only.
