Round 1 is not acceptance

Video game: A video game is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a two- or three-dimensional videodisplay device such as a TV screen or computer monitor. (Wikipedia)
Movie/Film: Movies, Also known as films, Are a type of visualcommunication which uses movingpictures and sound to tell stories or inform (Wikipedia)
Better: more advantageous or effective
Entertainment: the action of providing or being provided with amusement or enjoyment. (oxforddictionaries)

Interactive
You can use a tool to choose where to go. This can be a controller, Keyboard etc. By having this it allows the user to dictate the pace of the entertainment rather than allowing the director to do it for you.

Time
Overall games offer more time to get enjoyment. This can be stopped and picked up at whatever time the user pleases. In a video game there is the possibility of choosing different scenarios to be played either choosing it earlier or later on in the experience.

Replayability
Due to the extent of the content in video games it does allow the user to have many different ways of going through content. This helps if the extent of the different ways are really drastic that it makes the user want to replay the video game again just to see what was missed.

Interactive
You can use a tool to watch movies too you have a remote control and you also have different buttons you can operate on netflix.

Time
It's better going to the movie theatres than sitting all day playing a video game because if you play it too much you could get tired of it.

Replayability
You can also rewatch movies and catch things that you haven't missed. It's better and more entertaining rewatching movies than replaying video games.

"You can use a tool to watch movies too you have a remote control and you also have different buttons you can operate on netflix. "
The problem is the best you can do with remotes is change the volume, Change where you are at the movie, Pause and that is it. With a controller it is more interactive due to the amount that can be done.
Lets take a generic first person shooter. You can use x to jump, Square to reload, Triangle to change weapon, R1 to fire, R2 to use a grenade, L1 to aim, L2 to use secondary throw-able item. That is not all of it but it does give more control to the user which allows them more freedom in what they are viewing and interacting.

"It's better going to the movie theatres than sitting all day playing a video game because if you play it too much you could get tired of it. "
Subjective and also you can get tired of watching the movie the second time if you are watching a bad movie. You stated time as in favour of my side. By you mentioning "all day" you are already conceding that you can spend more time on video games compared to movies due to how much better video games are at keeping the user interested. At best a movie lasts for 3 hours which is short to the all-day video games length of 12 hours or more if you decide to skip sleep.

"You can also rewatch movies and catch things that you haven't missed. "
You can also replay video games and catch things that you have missed. This applies more toward video games than movies. Video games can and do offer different ways of completing. If the options are so different and good it can warrant the user to play again just to see what the user missed.

"It's better and more entertaining rewatching movies than replaying video games. "
Subjective so basically I can say it is better to play video games and since there are only two people debating it would end with a draw.

You sound like you have a PS4 you should add me on there what are your favorite video games? Do you play fortnite

Subjective and also you can get tired of watching the movie the second time if you are watching a bad movie.
What does subjective mean and it it's a bad movie you wouldn't watch it a second time you would rewatch a movie if it is a good movie.

You stated time as in favour of my side. By you mentioning "all day" you are already conceding that you can spend more time on video games.
That wasnt meant to help your side. When I said all day I meant it as hypothetical. "Better going to the movies than playing a game all day" I'm speaking in general not speaking on myself

You can also replay video games and catch things that you have missed.
can't argue with that one

"You sound like you have a PS4 you should add me on there what are your favorite video games? Do you play fortnite"
No point given. I'll still answer it. Yes I do use a Playstation 4 but prefer singleplayer games. I don't really like multiplayer games.

"What does subjective mean and it it's a bad movie you wouldn't watch it a second time you would rewatch a movie if it is a good movie. "
Subjective: based on or influenced by personal feelings, Tastes, Or opinions. (Google: Subjective define)
A good video game has more replayability than a good movie based on time. Good in this instance is whatever you like.

"That wasnt meant to help your side. When I said all day I meant it as hypothetical. "Better going to the movies than playing a game all day" I'm speaking in general not speaking on myself"
Even if you did a video game can keep the user's attention longer than a movie. Looking at the same movie becomes more tedious compared to playing the same game all day. Reason is you can choose what to do, How to do it and when to do it. A movie is what the director intended whereas yes it would also be the same for video games but you still have to interact for things to happen. That time you take to interact does give the player more freedom and more chances to make the content less stale and do something instead of watching the same thing over and over again.

"can't argue with that one"
No new point made again. I would also argue video games due to how varied the choices can be does allow the user more replayability.

"Well ok then we'll see the voters decisions"
Instead of making an argument you just say that.

"Pornhd"?
"big_bbc-porn"?

I don't believe you. I still can't click on the link and I am glad.
That link does not help your case if I am assuming what it is.
Basically gave no argument in Round 3.

Reasons for voting decision: omar234 is a fraudulent fake of omar2345. omar234 isn't very good at debating and at most instances very hard to grasp what he is saying as he does not know how separate sentences and use a simple period. Con states "What does subjective mean and it it's a bad movie you wouldn't watch it a second time you would rewatch a movie if it is a good movie." Huh? I got totally lost there. Con's entire debate is in shambles.
