I have no problem with paintball, airsoft, laser tag, ball tag - whatever.

However these arguments are pretty poorly constructed. They effectively start with a conclusion (X is better) and then build premises to support it. The fallacy is card stacking - when constructing the arguments information that does not support the conclusion previously reached is rejected. The argument lacks intellectually honesty.
