Summary:

It depends on a few factors. If we are talking about video games in general and the possibility they have, then I would have to agree with you video games can be good for you. Since you state in general that means both negative and positive. The negative outweigh the positive for this statement though. The games made these days are very violent and given that we humans learn through certain pre-determined ways. I hereby say that it is not good for you. Also, the way it is used though its technological tool is bad for you as well. In far I state that being good for you in terms of education. It can be replaced by other methods for in the past this wasn't present thus indicated not needed.

I don't think there is much room for this topic to be in favor of your standpoint. Maybe you will think of something later on. Not that it is very helpful to you since you are bored right now. Whatever way you want to proceed is up to you. You can try and go against my arguments in round one.

it is rather unfair to day all games are violent as some are made to maximise your mental capacity for stuff like memory and problem solving and yeah i cant think of any thing else :(

True, but besides the positive effects video games could have. There are also negative effects through the long usage of it. If you play it all the time straight, or even 10 hours straight chances are you will get a headache. From that the body is telling you what you are doing now is damaging. Also, the brain is a very important organ in your body you really don't want something to go wrong with it. The positive effects of video games can be gained in another ways. We exist for quite some time now even before video games. Within that it is perfectly possible to use another source for education that has the same effect as video games.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro has no idea what he is talking about. Con at least tries to debate. Video games are good for you in a number of way. It keeps your mind active, it improves hand-eye coordination and if you play online can connect you with people you may never have met. There has been no substantive evidence that violent video games make people inherently violent. Very bad debate.
