This will be a proper debate. No spelling errors if you can help It. I will be taking the side of good, Con will be taking Bad. Good Luck


I would like to point that this was a direct challenge. I'm not sure why. Because I don't know this dude. Nor have I even been active on this site for the last week or two.

I'm sorry, do I know you? Have we met in a past life? Is there some kind of agenda or rationale as to why I was directly challenged to such a random debate? I don't recall offering strong dissidenting opinions against video games either on this site or another.

Or is this one of those double secret tournament debates where you think that you've stumbled upon some easy win noob to cherry pick. Because if that's the case I will kindly recommend that you first preread the beatdown I gave ObiWan. I'm sorry Obi, I think you're a good guy and all but you insulted my pride when you sent me that challenge. Regardless...

Sure, I'll argue the opposite of whatever the heck you argue.

But don't think this won't get weird because it already has.
Debate Round No. 1


I am thankful you accepted this debate. I don't pick noobs to debate unless it is a subject I am knowledgeable about. And having some but not a lot of experience with this I will challenge my skills to find good info and websites to use.

Video games are good for the mind as they will challenge the mind to figure out puzzles and they do help with coordination. Now, it is known that video games that are extremely violent and there is some but almost no correlation between people who do bad things in real life and those who do it in video games. Proper use of video games, such as to alleviate stress.

This article helps illustrate what I am stating. I don't mean shooter games like halo or assassins creed. What I mean is somewhat more on the level of the Lego games. With puzzles galore and it includes heroes and villains it is perfect for those who are mentally ill, people who just want to exercise their brain, or people who just want to relax with something that is both challenging and fun.


I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with everything you just said.

Extending arguments.

Debate Round No. 2


I'm not even sure where to go from there, so I forfeit the remaining rounds to the victor U.n. because I have very little time to type a full proper debate. Sorry to have wasted your time.


I would like to thank my opponent, red_x, for the opportunity to debate this topic, his contributions to the debate, and his graciousness in defeat. Without him none of these arguments could have been possible.

I would also like to thank the moderators, Mr Ferret President, his secret administration, the Voters Union, non-affiliated voters, those who lost their voting rights, as well as the general DDO community. Thank you to the forums and the polls and the opinions. Thank you to the readers and the random passerbys. Thank you to the dozens and dozens of people who will consider reading my arguments and everyone who will not. Thank you to those of you who reported my votes, where would I be without you? Thank you Peepette, thank you vi_spex, thank you CodingSource and Blade-of-Truth and ViceRegent. Thank you to Whiteflame and famousdebater and lannin13.

And while I simply don't have the character space - well, I probably do - to name you all by name. It's getting late and I'd just much rather wrap this up and get to the drinking some beer in celebration of this hard earned and rather spectacular victory.

Thank you to the tournaments and the countless games of mafia that we've all played. Thank you to the Google Hangouts where I've met all of you by name. But most of all I would like to Thank God. Thank you God for making me and all of my arguments inherently awesome.

It's been one hell of a debate. It's been one hell of a ride. Let's drink beer!

Wasn't trying to hurt your feelings. You had said something opposite I had on an opinion and I thought you would be a challenge. I like challenges. I don't directly challenge noobs. I saw you were pretty intelligible about what you were talking about and i thought this could be fun.
