Thank you for accepting my debate.

Video games do make a positive impact on today's society for many reasons.

Video games calm players down.
Many studies have shown that video games, even violent ones, can calm people down and make them more relaxed. Many video games have been specifically created to calm people down. A study published in The Journal of Youth and Adolescence shown that a link between violent video games and relaxation exist. Video games are used as an outlet for stress in many people, adults and kids alike.
