Video Games are not too violent. Or Not all games are violent. Some enhance learning and are educational such as Targeting Maths or Matheltics. These help kids with learning. There are so many games out there which help people. It's not proven that violent video games rub off on people, making them violent. In some cases it does the exact opposite. it calms them, getting their rage out in games rather than in real life. It's proven that when a child has bad communication with his/hers parents it's more likely to result in bad behavior and less likely from violent games. Parents have to watch out for their kids and sometimes have to make the decision for them, to protect them.

I accept this debate. My opponent has made it clear that he feels videos games are not violent or at least some aren't however, I have evidence that' says otherwise.

Yes video games can be educational but most video game players do not go for those type of games.

My opponent says that violent video games don't make people violent but that they actually make you less violent. I would like if you gave proof of that.

MY ARGUMENTS

1. Video games are very common in men and young boys. Games such as call of duty or gta are very common games played by men. Men already have a violent and agressive nature so when you add violent video games like this to the mix it does not make it better.

2. I wanna bring up the Colorado and columbine shootings for example. The reason I bring them up is because they both had something in common. They both had a violent gameing history. Now I'm not saying this was the main cause however, it definitely played a huge roll in what they did.

3. A lot of also gamers report getting angry when not beating a certain level or if the game doesn't go there way.,
I will end for now until my opponent gives the rest of his arguments.

They are too violent indeed but they are just... violent. It doesn't effect the person playing it because you learn the ability to differ virtual and real life after you're 5 years old. And for the shootings I'll say this:
We as rational members of the society shouldn't judge the hobbies of a criminal rather judge his financial or psychological situation because that's probably the case.

Oh noes! I didn't complete a level on some violent game! I'm going to go kill loads of random people now! Personally, I think in general, video games don't make you more violent.

This is ridiculous. not every single game is violent. Case closed.

What exactly is the argument for establishing a link between video games and violence?

What is it meant by violence? Psysical? Verbal? Other kind?

What about the personality of the player involved?
