Those kids are just idiots, it is wrong for them to blame a game for a single isolated incident.

It`s always video games. Before you know it, kids will start dressing up like elves, trying to kill people they think are space invaders and flying turtles.

To be fair to the teens; I`m pretty sure that car jacking, assualt, and violent crimes in general didn`t exist prior GTA4`s release earlier this year. Where else would they have gotten the idea?

So simple to explain.
Every single year, American parents become more and more ignorant, and ignore their jobs as parents.
Is this the kid`s fault? You`re goddamn right it is.
Is it the parent`s fault too? Damn right.
Is it Rockstar games` fault? NO drating way.
To the parents of these stupid [email protected] kids: F you.

How many people play GTA? I mean really if millions of people are out there playing and these dumbasses are some of the few that are dumb enough to recreate what they play why ruin it for the millions of other people that are smart enough to realize "hey this is just a video game and if I did this in real life I would create a lot of havoc and hmmm probably get arrested." Where were their parents in all of this and why didn`t they do anything to stop 16 year olds from playing a game that they shouldn`t have even been able to buy on their own b/c it`s rated MA?

Dear Lord Ganesh,

Please send some stupid teens to my car so that I may pump their bodies with 6 bullets from my Ruger. I promise I will consider not eating yummy american beef if you will please grant my wish.

5 year olds are influenced by what they see on TV and even then I doubt theyd grap a crowbar and jack a car. Theyre bloody 16 you`d hope theyre mature enough to make responsible descions and maybe make up a much more plausible excuse than "the bad man from the video game made me do it". F*ckin F*ck-tards.

if they had to blame a game so that people would want it taken off the market say alone in the dark or some other crappy title, don`t ruin what is good

Video games do not create stupid teens. Stupid parents create stupid teens.

Yes, thank you for this post. Restricting video games is only giving our enormous government more unnecessary power. What will they do next, ban everything on TV except nationalist propaganda? Maybe The Dark Knight should be banned for promoting vigilantism. Where do you draw the line?

OH MY F#CKING GOD!! These dumbasses need to get the S_HIT beat outta them...
How the F#CK are you gonna say a damn video game influenced you, thats like saying the Hanna Barbara cartoons made me drop a piano on my mom cuz she wouldnt let me chase the roadrunner.... This is bulls_hit and the B_itch that said that GTA needs to be slapped....

Video games NO MATTER the rating have no affect on anyones mind, thats why the 17+ law doesnt exist anymore, any age can buy MA games because IT DOESNT MATTER WATS IN THE GAME, It is just for entertainment and if anything is an outlet for urges to do things that are stupid....

I go to a school where at least 75% of the students major in game design- avid, hardcore gamers. If what the news said about video games and violence were true, it would probably be the most dangerous place in the world.

It`s one of the most clean and courteous environments I`ve ever been in.

i`m pretty sure it was a crime LONG before it was ever a video game.

1) Crowbar? Hell, they were copying Gordon Freeman, not GTA.

2) I`m going to say what I always say to this: It`s a bunch of attention whores doing crimes and blaming videos games afterwards. I don`t really believe (More like I don`t want to) that video games can have this much of an impact on the mind, but people want to try and make it seem that way. The whole conspiracy about Columbine and Doom may have started all of this.

millions of gamers on this game and even more millions on other even more violent and criminalistic games

out of those imeasurable millions about 10 or so go out and do these things

these kind of people are too easily led by violent games and tv etc, if this game did not exist then they would find another game or film or book etc to copy to unleash their inner rage.

clearly the game is not responcible for these acts and it just a blatent mental problem that these kind of people possess.

treat the people dont banish the game

i love how the adults just eat the story right up too. instead of saying stop blaming video games for actions!!!!! they just say "oh its terrible these games need to be taken off the market"

are you f*cking for real? they were probably already thugs before but they just chose now to go farther because they probably were playing the game and said "hey thats freaking sweet i know a guy who did something like that once dude lets go be bad asses" god these stories piss me off. society takes away my video games and i WILL go mental

(continued)and these punks deserve everything they get in jail. Ill get angry at gta when a 10 or 12 year old kid, a kid that doesnt know better goes off and mimics gta, which STILL would be the parents fault for buying them the drating game i mean seriously cant the parents step the drat up and show some responsibility for their kids actions?

please?

ok heres what really happened: one kid was talking to another and was like, hey why dont we go rob someone, i want to lash out some anger on the world because i dont know any better

and the other goes, ya and if we get caught (if because they didnt think they would) we can just blame it on gta and we wouldnt get in trouble!

then the first: ya great idea, lol

why cant parents teach their kids copying video games is bad? that stealing is bad? I lived in a community just like that and had friends just like them, whose parents were to busy with their jobs and their rich ass life to pay attention to their kids. Thank god my parents raised me right, i always knew when poo was about to go down and when to say, "hey, maybe throwing rocks at that guys car is a bad idea"

Of course this is just fuel to the fire for all the anti gta crazies, i mean these are teens. they are old enough anyway to make smart decisions (ran out of room)

By this reasoning, the government should just cut back on police forces and produce video games where players do nice things, like plant trees and pick up litter and help little old ladies across the road. I can see fire-safety games and food pyramid games and all sorts of other society-contributing games in our future. This is a wonderful idea to blame video games!

Eh, it`s always the same. The people of the old ways don;t understand the new technology/culture/music/entertainment (in this case, video games), so they fear it and blame it.

Back in the fifties there was actually a small movement to outright ban rock and roll music in the fifties because it "corrupted our youths"

When our children get hooked on holographic anime porn brain implants in the year 2030, I guarantee that half of us here will deride it and call it a scourge to society. History repeats itself.
