Hey everyone! Figured I'd start a debate here. The topic of this debate is in the title: Should violent video games be banned? This is a very popular topic and I'd like to hear what you all have to say about it. In my opinion, I think violent video games should not be banned. They are given a mature rating for a reason and they are a legitimate means of entertainment for mature people. There are violent movies and books out there, therefore it would be illogical to ban violent video games. What are your thoughts?
