Personal Opinion Essay

Should Violent Video Games be Banned for Children and Teens?

By: Dancer727

I believe that violent video games should be banned for both children and teens. Violent video games can lead some to harmful thoughts and actions. Children's and teens' brains are in the vital process of development and are easily influenced by "virtual realities" as seen in many types of video games. While people should have the right to chose what they are exposed to, certain video games can lead to harm to others. 

Note: I have heard of shootings and deaths in schools, influenced by video games. This argument was written in part to raise awareness for the potentially dangerous impact of a seemingly innocent pastime.
