I think that video games involving strong language shouldn't exist, because people can easily get used to that language and may start using it, which may cause fallouts with other people, and other issues like this, and this could ruin their life, and this has already happened to many people. I've got a good point here, and it makes sense, does it not? I am here to say something back to people who are against the above points. Parents let their kids play these games, and there are high amounts of them, especially in the UK and the US. I just don't understand why parents let them have these games. Games like Grand Theft Auto are definitely like the games I am describing. That game is absolutely awful. Foul language, drugs and more. That game is awful, and I know many kids who have this game, and it's very likely that they'll be growing and developing into foul-mouthed thugs, by playing them games a lot and getting used to that terrible language. Nobody should be playing these games.

I accept the debate and I wish you good luck.
"Video Games with Strong Language shouldn't exist."
Basically I guess this means that pro wants that all games with strong language should be forbidden.
I don't think violent games with foul language should be banned just because children might be affected. Well, the same can be said about modern music and movies and even books have foul language. One thing is for sure and that is that games are not for kids only. You mentioned GTA and said its an awful game and yes it is extremely violent and have lots of foul language but its not for kids, GTA is for adults, its designed by adults for adults. The problem is that video games are seen only for kids like toys by media when its not. Its not the state that should "think of the children" in this matter but the childrens own parents.
Also to forbid foul language in games is a kind of censor and against many countries laws.
Also 1000 chars are a bit to few for a good debate.

Good luck.

I don't think adults should be playing the game either, because they'd get used to the foul language, and they'd be talking to people in that way, which most people would not like.

quoting you

"I don't think adults should be playing the game either, because they'd get used to the foul language, and they'd be talking to people in that way, which most people would not like."

Do you got any sources for that?
Just because adults play games with foul language they don't turn into " foul-mouthed thugs"(your words). I for example love GTA and I don't use foul language except in rare cases and the same for everyone else I know. Just because you just killed 20 cops in a game doesn't mean you walk around in reality mass murdering, its the same with words. You don't start to swear just because you hear someone in a game or on tv do it.

If people were that easy to manipulate its strange that not everyone are foul speaking murderers when we have had decades of movies and music using foul language.

Sorry, I can't think of anything anymore, you win. I should have done this as "Parents should not buy adult games for kids".
