I say that killing games are bad because that sometimes leads to future crimes.

I thank my opponent for starting this debate.

First I would like to ask my opponent: What is your argument? You say that "killing games" lead to future crimes. This is not true.

The video games seem to decrease violence, if anything. I would refute further arguments, but you seem to be out.

Actually, some games like Resience of Evil might control your brain with killing. Also, some games might have virus. They also have people who kill, such as when a man is angry, he might remember a game that shows how to kill someone. Here is my proof:

How does a game "control your brain with killing"? People always have control over their own actions, not a piece of machinery they connect to their TV. You say some games "might" have viruses. You mean computer viruses? That is irrelevant to anything.

"They also have people who kill, such as when a man is angry, he might remember a game that shows how to kill someone."

You are saying that a man may not know how to kill someone, except he did in on a video game? People know how to kill each other. There were no video games 100 years ago, and people still killed each other. It's simple. You could stab them with a sharp object, or shoot them, or club them over the head with a heavy object, etc. Also, some games have magic used to kill people, so if anyone tried to do that in real life, they would get nowhere.

How is www.abc7.com any form of proof? It says nothing about video games anywhere that I saw. If it mentioned them anywhere, it was not made very clear, and you should have linked to the other page containing the information. You have a very poor argument, and only one, unclear source. Vote PRO.

arcticanticsdebater had a very vague argument.......... If he supported more ideas he would have had chance to win this debate..............

Oh my imaginary god, I really hope that he's a parody account. His arguments are so asinine, but if they're meant as parody they're pure genius. Although I think the chances of that are minimal at best. It's really hard to do parody online (but of course still possible sometimes). Too much of parody is based on body languages, intonation, and the assumption that your audience is familiar with the material that you are parodying to make it an easy transfer to the internet.

Why would anyone want to kill a game anyways?

What is there to be con about?
