Millions of people spend hours on video games. That is cold stated fact known by all in this century. All in all is it beneficial for us in moving forward? Many people believe that video games are harmful to kids. Others may say it"s builds creativity in our mind.
Although Video Games can be beneficial if appropriate .Video games helped me build a strong imaginary. It opens your mind to possibilty most positive but also negative. For instance Super Mario, amazing story line gives kids a super hero and a creative mind set were not all bad guys are not bad. Which is great and positive thing but not all kids play Super Mario or super hero games.
Now as we go with increase technology more play video games it"s easy to get to. With increase technology and low amount of parents of watching what activity kids play in their games more filth can be in taken. Many kids can download "inappropriate" games without parents being verified.Due to all of this kids are playing wrongful games brought up by friends who let borrow games, downloaded games etc.
Yes Kids are rotten kids minds as we go one. I"ve had experienced this effect even now playing video games as a 16 year old. I played a game where you put a chip in somebody"s phone and when you call them it blew their brains out. After I"ve seen that I freaked out for a lil bit knowing that can really happen in life. That was my reaction to it imagine a child"s response to that like your lil kid, or nephew they would be scared, terrified etc.
In conclusion kids shouldn"t be playing so much video games. It helps but very little it mostly destroys the mind. By personal experience more kids have to be more active before the 40 or 60 not being able to run due to joint damage. All in all make our kids active today for a better much more active tomorrow

You're right, kids do need to be more active, parents don't care, and most games are bad. But not all games are that way. Sure, there are games that give kids an imagination, but there are also games that help you exersise, and teach you important life skills. For instance: the tycoon games teach you how to run a business, strategy games teach you how to think quickly and make good decisions, while games on the kinect or wii help you exersise. With those you're moving some or all of your body, and now that they made wii fit portable, kids can play the game where every they go and not rot their brains out infront of the tv. Plus there's that one quiz game that tests you on your knowledge. Some people who play those might want to work on what they didn't know, and then try again for a better score.

i understand your point and were your coming from what we need to think about is future. With kids eventually they all grew out of those types of games. what i noticed and experienced little kids will play but the adults will play much much more.

Interesting prediction, but there's the possibility that they make a game system that similar to google glass where every action you do will be done in the game. Horror games will help tue exersize by making them scared enough to run. Besides exercise games tend to be fun and are played more often than one would expect.

Now that would be the missing piece to the puzzle of catching interest to all kids which it should be the goal of big name game manufacturers. To create a game system that does that but till that actually happens high percentage of kids play inappropriate games and that's fact.

Yes. And out of all the places I've been, I've met a lot of kids who prefer the sports games. And most kids take alot of interest because most of them like the sports that they play on video games. And after they're done, they usually want to go outside and play some more. All we really need to do is step up the propoganda and make more sports games than we're getting. Than more people would become interested.

Reasons for voting decision: Spelling goes to Con for not capitalizing I and the improper grammar in round 1. Con wins arguments based on the fact that Pro really didn't refute many of his points that Con batted down. The two sides should have used sources to enhance their arguments.
