    Use of evidence: 5 2.6
    Delivery skill: 4 3
    Coherence of arguments: 5.5 3
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5.5 3.5
    Identification of key points: 5.5 3.5
    Comments: You're use of evidence was good, the 2005 study of amplitudes in brain was particularly good because it shows there is a real scientific proof that violent video games cause children to act violently
    Responsiveness to arguments - You almost get a perfect, but you didn't respond to the argument that even if a ban occurs, people can still play old video games, you answered the argument about constitutional rights, but you didn't answer that arg. apart from that you did a really good job.
    Identification of points - you did mostly a good job, except for the whole, ppl can play old video games.
    You used some evidence, but not a lot, only one study about violence levels in South Korea and Japan, and that evidence doesn't even say *if* violent video games *cause* violence
    You're identification of arguments could have been better. In the first opposition constructive you didn't have any counter studies to the question of: does playing violent video games cause violent behavior. All you had was other things cause violence and jap and korea have violent video games but there not violent. You essentially conceded to the Proposition that video games do cause violence. You're argument, functionally, was violent video games may cause violence but it's unlikely and may cause some violence.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Sara Miller

    Reason for Decision:

    I think the proposition won that violent video games are bad. The Opposition did win that people will just play old violent video games (the proposition didn't answer this argument specifically). However even if people will play old violent video games, I still feel like banning new video games at least has a higher likely hood of stopping violence because the opposition didn't prove violent video games doesn't cause violence
