Should video games be so violent and should teens 13 or younger be allowed to buy them without an adult?
RXR

Con

Should kids under the age of 13 be allowed to buy violent video games with or without an adult ?

No, that's why there's a rating on the back of the box. To avoid minors from buying M-rated games. Violent video games will expose kids to gore, violence, and sex. And kids ages 13 and below are more prone to aggresion according to a article that tested out this theory.

In conclusion, kids shouldn't buy M-rated games because they are not fully mature enough to play them.

All i have to say.... there are ratings for a reason, T for teen is the one that allows teens to be able to buy them. Why should a parent accompany the is the ratings say its T for teen?
RXR

Con

Because the're are certain sequences in the game that shows kids ages 13 and down teen rated content. T for teen games still contain blood, violence, etc.

In conclusion: Kids should only play games that fit their age.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro certainly could have tried harder. He stuck with 1 liners, and ultimately was overwhelmed by Con's arguments.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited too many rounds, and provided two sentences of arguments. Con refuted these arguments, and then some.
