Pro

video games should be banned because our generation is getting obsessed with video games like call of duty. This is ruining our children. I understand that adults want to have fun when playing violent video games but children playing these games is making this generation violent. Video games should be banned and current people. Only people with an id should be able to buy and play these games unless they are rated everyone. Making a law to prevent kids from playing violent video games would change this generation and help make communities safe.

Con

They have the right to choose which video games they want to play, And parents should be overseeing them, But I do not think there should be a law against it. Some people think they are fun (most), And most people will not do harm because of them. To what extent would you want them banned? Like, Should Fortnite be banned? What evidence do you have that it is hurting children? My mind is open on this debate.

Yeah, I think it is a connection that people who do not like video games like to make

There is no real evidence it is all cause vs causation and not conclusive ex: this person shot up a school, He had 200 hours in cs:go, I guess the games did it!

Can you define what you mean by "violent". Do you think we should ban children from watching violent movies? What if someone gifts a kid a violent game, Should that person be fined or prosecuted?
