Con

I Believe that kids under 12 should not play violent video games because it can cause violence to influence kids minds and that would change the life of a family and the kids.
FlammableX

Pro

I accept this debate.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

kids need to spend time with their parents and loved ones instead of putting their face 3" from the tv/tablet/phone.
FlammableX

Pro

I would like to state that currently, Con's argument makes no distinction between violent video games and video games in general, in effect, rendering the "violent" aspect of the question useless. If the pro wanted to ask "Should kids under age 12 play video games," then he should have. Thus, I will not be talking about whether or not playing video games or not is better or worse - rather, I will be contrasting the idea of playing video games (violent included), and video games (non-violent only).
Therefore, I do not need to give an argument until the Con distinguishes the pros and cons of violent video games vs. non-violent video games. Otherwise, the "violent" aspect is used as a double-standard, and the pro will win.

maxxy525 forfeited this round.

Pro

Con forfeited, and I extend my argument. There is no reason why kids should not play violent video games, as there is no evidence to show that violent video games engenders violent behavior in kids (pro did not even make this claim - in fact, there was no mention of how "violent" video games contrasts with video games in general from the pro side). Therefore, pro failed to uphold the BOP and con wins by default.

Reasons for voting decision: No side used sources. Pro obviously won due to con's continuous use of bad grammar and capitalization. In addition, con forfeited and did not answer any of pro's contentions, meaning pro won the debate.
