Video Games can start bad habits because it can keep your yes glued to the screen which you are playing on. It can be bad for your education because you put video games as you number one priority. You "forget" to study for a test. You don't do your homework. Video Games also can put everything else in your head aside. Video Games clearly can start bad habits.

Con

video games can distract people, however, it can also trigger ones creativity. this is important if you are planning to get a job that needs to have a creative mind. video games also exercise the brain. this will help them be able to hold more into their brain at one time. this will help people actually learn more. the argument the pro said would be more true for watching TV.

I do agree with the con, but Video Games have more effect on one's brain. Video games can stop someone from thinking and make him/herself mesmerized in the game.

however, on the other side video games can affect ones brain in a good way. it may be up to the person to what game he is going to play. only some games may start bad habits.

I agree, but video games can create ADHD. ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It's when you start multitasking and you start to struggle with paying attention and doing the right things. You might play your video game console while trying to read, while texting your friends, while trying to finish an essay. This can be a bad habit. Video games can also be bad for you because it can start obesity.

This debate rather looks like a youtube comments section. Neither side even realizes to do any research and find tons of articles written on the topic

i think that's a loaded question. yes video games could become a bad habit, however it uses much more of the brain than other habits (tv, smoking, drinking) not to mention video games improves hand-eye coordination and problem solving. it could turn into a bad habit if you don't maintain harmony and balance with other aspects of your life

Video games are just another form of mind control, nevermind the argument you propose, which if you are truly a decpticon you're purpose is served.. It is just as Hollywood and the media manipulate people through behavior modification. " I will act this way when spoken to in a certain way. "
