Should all video games be banned or made family friendly?
Debate Rounds (5)
A 2013 review of published studies found that playing shooter video games improved a player"s capacity to think about objects in three dimensions, just as well as academic courses to enhance these same skills, according to the study.
"This has critical implications for education and career development, as previous research has established the power of spatial skills for achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics," Granic said.

I am guessing you have already have run out of prof of video games leading to terrorism?
Moving on Video games are not just outlets of violence and destruction they are also a form of entertainment and like all entertainment there are different levels for different age groups... Not all games are designed for any five year old who hops on a computer. There are ratings on (most) games and it isn't hard to tell if a games is inappropriate eg: wow this games is very violent this probably be good for my three year old....
Look here is a tale of Saints row 4 when it released in Australia. 
Due to the slight difference in the game (one removed loyalty mission with a "homie", (detailed below), the version will not be able to connect with copies of Saints Row 4 sold elsewhere.
Saints Row 4's release was first blocked when Aussie censors turned their noses up at the game'sRectifier anal probe weapon. This will now be optional add-on content, made available as part of the Saints Row 4 Season Pass.
"Due to the changes we were forced to make, this version is different than the version rated by rating boards like the ESRB, USK, and PEGI, which is why it will be incompatible with those versions in co-op," a statement on the game's official"Facebook"page read.
As for the "Rectifier" weapon that was mentioned as an "alien anal probe" weapon recently - it launches enemies into the sky - this is and always has been a bonus weapon for the Season Pass. At this point in time we are still awaiting details on whether we can include it in the Season Pass in Australia or not."
This isn't the first case an it won't be the last... Remember Adult games for adult gamers.
I would like to ask you one final question. What would happen if all games were banned? I don't know about the rest of the gaming community but if you want to get rid of my fifth anneversery edition of the elders srcolls IV Oblivion then you would have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.
Another thought is what about the gaming industry? You can't just expect them to just pack up for good can you? It would be economc sucide. If the world is in some bad economic times it wouldn't really be a wise course of action..
I thank you all for listening to my case and I would like to thank airoil937 for being a skilled opponent and I enjoyed this debate...
