but i think is going to be tough finding info on how it helps you usualy videogame articles are how violent it is why is bad for your mental health

it has to be 4-6 minutes my presentation
the main things it has to change or reinforce altitude beliefs
i have to cite 3 different sources to support point in argument

Choose something like guitar!

Write the word in the middle of a page and jot down anything that you can think about it like "Creativity" "Emotion" "Skill" and also try and view things from other peoples opinions like I dunno "It might annoy the neighbours"

But if you can state a negative, and then find a soloution i.e "The neighbours think it's too loud" to "I'll wear headphones" i think that might help for a persuasive speech

Guitar Hero - coordination
Mario - promotes eating vegetables to grow big and strong
Star Fox - ****ing rocks so make mention of it somehow
Tetris - spatial thinking
Zelda - problem solving skills

Talk really loudly and call people idiots and refuse to answer them if they ask a question or even put their hand up.


Ask Meths.

Google, as generic as an answer. I did this as a debate topic ages ago. There is heaps of stuff out there if you look. Mention how video games have successfully used in some schools to motivate and encourage students to get fit and have been proven successful. You'll also have to recognise counter arguments and shoot them down. Such as video games lead to violence. Mention the ESRB rating system and how it is used to alert parents that some games are not appropriate and they should be responsible for letting their children play them. How a video game system is not a babysitter and it is infact the parents responsibility to pay attention to games their children are playing. And how most people are able to distinguish between video games and reality. Like Here_is_no_why said a lot of games encourage problem solving and coordination (especially the wii).

If you want something particularly challenging, try to persuade them that rape is good.


Or you could just do "climate change is bad" just like everyone else.

Do legalizing marijuana, it's so easy with alcohol and cigarrettes being legal to bring up decent points about health problems etc. Worked for me in College.
