Violence is clearly an issue, not just in the United States but EVERYWHERE!
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept to represent the con side of this debate. I will argue that video games do not correlate to any violent activities people will undertake. I would also ask pro to try use sources to back up any assertions made. Let's start.
Now I would also want to draw fact to the decrease of violent crime in the US even though there has been a sudden boom of Video games as a main street medium for art. Also even though the US currently has the highest firearm murder rate in the world, other countries where video games are more popular per capita seem to have lower firearm related deaths. 
Also many of the studies 'proving' to find a link between violence in the real world and video games have had major flaws and didn't follow the scientific method properly. Most don't use an effective way of measuring aggression e.g noise blast tests. Aggressive thoughts have also been confused with aggressive actions and there is no long term study on the effects of video games. 
Video games have been able to do interesting things in that rather make people violent and agitated, creates a therapeutic effect where players are encourage to punish the 3D models in game rather than taking the anger out in the real world. This is debated among professional scientists but is widely believed by players of video games (myself included).
I feel as if this pointing fingers at this medium is generally a way to put the blame in a medium that many people still do not understand. Similar things happened to movies, books, comics, opera, dancing and radio during the early days but have now been accepted as the norm. 
Michelle2017 forfeited this round.
My opponent fails to make any proven points on how videogames can cause real world agression and also failed to argue any of my points. I still stand by the points made in the previous arguement and believe that violent videogames do not correlate to violent acts in real life and risitricting them would not make any country any safer.
