I thank my oponnent for responding. Video games have many positive impacts on people, for one they can be inspired to do good things. Not all video games are about killing people. There are many more fun and interactive games for children and adults. Think about it.

I would like to make an argument with your statement, ' kid spend way to mush time in front of the tv screen they can become fat,volint, and can cause seizure and that is just some of the reasons'. Many kids gain weight every day, I play video games many times a day, but I play sports and don't eat a lot. When I play video games, yeah I might eat chips, but I work it off, in many video games statisticts have shown that for Wii Fit people have lost weight, COD and Battlefield aren't the ONLY video games on the planet.

There is scientific proof that video gaming has health benefits. For example, Sports and Fighting games are actually helpful as they create a dramatic level of pain resistance. Also, research by Swedish scientists showed that students that play World of Warcraft learned about politics, they used proportional representation to vote on where and when they"d launch in-game raids, as well as mathematical formulas to figure out the best damage per second for their character.

See, are really are health benefits to playing video games.

"become fat,volint, and can cause seizure and that is just some of the reasons" Sorry, I HAVE TO stop you. People become fat because of what they eat, if they exercise, and how fast their metabolism is. Violence is usually caused by aggression, and/or mental conditions. True, some games do cause aggression, but usually people don't go on a homicidal rampage because they have the lowest score on a Call of Duty match. To some, violent video games calm them down, and reduce the urge to kill. To others, violent video games make them want to kill. One more quick thing... seizures don't just happen. The person has to be epileptic. (Meaning some light patterns can cause disturbances in the brain.) If the person plays a game with flashing lights, unknowing that they have epilepsy, it is not the video game's fault! Nor is it the player's fault!

Sorry, I just had to correct you. It was bugging me.

No, generally they are not, but this doesn't mean that they are bad for you. Whether or not video games are bad for health depends on the person's condition.
