Counter Claim
Some people say that “Playing violent video games reduces violence in adolescent boys by serving as a substitute for rough and tumble play.” this tells us that Playing violent video games is good for tens and that it helps people to release their aggression in the game. others say “Video game players understand they are playing a game. Their ability to distinguish between fantasy and reality prevents them from emulating video game violence in real life.” this shows that video games player are less likely to cause violent to others.
But there's a few case of violence that cause by violent video games like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting for example, I heard that the gunman was a young man playing lots of violent video games. therefore videogames and real life is not so different, and that some video games players are more likely to snap and cause pain to others.

Claim a
Violent video games desensitize players to real-life violence, studies hows that violent video game exposure has been linked to reduced P300 amplitudes in the brain, which is associated with desensitization to violence and increases in aggressive behavior, this shows that violent video games are not good for teens and that violence video games does contribute to youth violence.
A 2000 FBI report includes playing violent video games in a list of behaviors associated with school shootings. like the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, The gunman use to play violent video games at home and those video games cause him to be more violent and even worst killing innocent people. Violent video games are most likely to cause youth violence.
Claim B
Violent video games teach youth that violence is an acceptable conflict-solving strategy and an appropriate way to achieve one's go, but that is not right. A 2009 study found that youth who play violent video games have lower belief in the use of nonviolent strategies and are less forgiving than players of nonviolent video games. this shows that violent video games are not good for teens.
Violent video games cause players to associate pleasure and happiness with the ability to cause pain in others and increase the likelihood of youth violence. This shows how violent video games change the lives of the game players and how violent video games trigger violent acts.

Intro

Claim C
Playing violent video games increases aggressive behavior and arousal. Violent video games require active participation, repetition, and identification with the violent character. With new game controllers allowing more physical interaction, the immersive and interactive characteristics of video games can increase the likelihood of youth violence. this shows that players can now physically involve in the game and that they are most likely to commit violence to others. Playing violent video games causes the development of aggressive behavioral scripts, a behavioral scripts is like your mind controling your body base on what you always do like playing video games for example, your mind would tell you to turn on the TV, grab the controller, sit down, and play. This shows that If you spend lots of time playing violent video games you’re more likely to do violent actions.
