Since you have taken the "Con" position I'll assume you think video games are not good for teenagers.

In a recent study [1] by the National Institute of Health, video game players performed better on cognitive tests than non-gamers did.

Due to the extremely limited time to present an argument, both I and my opponent have missed a round. Unfortunately, my opponent has missed another round. Given the 500 character limit, I'll have to limit this round to this statement, leaving the instigator another chance to rebut my first-round argument.

I should point out that it was eKian, and not me, who decided the character length of 500 for arguments and the time to argue of three hours.

I suppose my opponent can have the last round to address the first.
