It teaches children to associate violence with pleasure. This means when children play video games they enjoy the feel of violent actions when playing a game like war or assain related games.

Firstly and most clearly, I disagree.

I take issue with the framing of violent video games associate violence with pleasure. Particularly as it suggests that a pleasure of winning a contest in a video game and enjoy that success has a correlation to committing violence in real life and feeling pleasure from it. Playing Violent Video games can be pleasurable, However, Does not mean it a connection to pleasure when committing Physical Violence.

Second I'd like to make the case against an overall Ban, The logistical Limitations and Gray area when approaching this policy. I'd as what age do you believe these games are appropriate and why? My point of view is it should be a communication between parents and child to determine for themselves when a child is mature enough to play these games.

Lastly, I'd Argue That there are benefits to exposing children to this type of content that contradicts your original Thesis, With the argument involving Pornography. Younger teenagers who viewed pornography had a better understanding of appropriate sexual conduct, Risks and safe sex tips than teenagers who didn't.

Video games do have a correlation with violence appearing in children. HOWEVER, It is not the only thing to blame. Rather it is sharing the blame with bad parenting. So many kids play violent video games, And it is terrible for their brain development. The parents aren't excused however because they allow the children to play these games. They should go through games before letting their children play. A child's brain is nearly a blank slate, And thus almost everything leaves an impression, Especially the fun stuff. So when the parents let the children play, They are also at fault as the video game corrupts the mind of the kid gamer. With more adult gamers, They have had time to develop and thus are less influenced by video games to be violent. (unless of course they were violent as a child because of game)
On another note, Pornography is never ok. Unpopular opinion here but there are definite downsides to it. Porn, Like games (except worse), Corrupts the mind and desensitizes you to the reality of how things are. It isn't victim-less either. Severe psychological damage, Like depression, Anxiety, Etc. Can ensue when, For example, Marriages are ruined over it. The spouse could ruminate over why it happened, Thinking "I'm not good enough" or other things and fall into depression.
