VIOLENCE BROUGHT UPON BY VIDEO GAMES General Purpose: To persuade my audience Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience that violence in video games promotes aggression. I. INTRODUCTION A. Attention Gainer: Did you know that sixty-six percent of American teenagers who play video games are playing violent video games (No Bullying, 2015) B. Reason to Listen: Our generation is so used to this idea of turning on your game console, grabbing the controller, and pulling the trigger without realizing the effects it has off the screen and outside of this fantasy world. C. Speaker Credibility (right to inform): I have put hours into research on both sides of the debate on whether or not violent video games stimulate violence amongst the players. I have interviewed fellow classmates, watched interviews of psychologists, read articles on the affects it has on people’s behaviors and language. D. Thesis statement: Violent video games promote violence in the players and there are many things we as a society can do to prevent this. E. Preview your Main Points: A lot of teenagers play video games that promote violence. In fact a lot of these teenagers are playing video games that are not meant for them. The repercussions behind playing these video games can be violence, anger, and aggressiveness. In fact most parents aren’t even aware of how video games get rated and what these ratings mean. Without their knowledge the situation has grown far worse than it should have. II. BODY A. Problems/Harms: Major problems that come into play are the violence these games cause, the amount of teenagers that play these video games, and the influence these games have on little kids. 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
