I think hearing about people doing this stuff gives more of a motive for killing people than playing video games does.
Someone should make a video game that`s like EXTREMELY realistic. Like, decent blood/gore effects, really inaccurate guns, and if you die once, you fail and can never play the game again.It`d prove the difference between video games and reality VERY clearly.
P.S. Lionhart, I pity you. I have played Runescape myself for a time, but there are sooooo many better games. Especially if you are paying for Runescape. Download a game, it`ll be 10x better than Runescape. Or if you can`t download something, buy a game like Guildwars. Or if you don`t want to spend money, play a game like Quake Live (browser based FPS)
I never considered taking a video game to real life. The graphics are good, but you don`t get continues or save points. Also, the cop stars add up way too quick and the vehicles have like, no health, you crash into one tree at 75Mph and you`re screwed.
I really don`t get why video games are blamed at all for someone`s behavior. The person does the crime, not the video game. Where they get their inspiration from is irrelevant.
God damn I hate humanity sometimes....I can`t express it.
I completely agree. I play the games because they offer an entertaining alternative to reality... The alternative sometimes being a medieval knight, a plumber, a gangster, etc... All things we usually couldn`t do in real life, when video games are taken too seriously, real bad things can happen.
Parents, please. Monitor what your kids play, don`t let them play games they shouldn`t...but for the love of life, don`t blame video games for screwing up your kids when you`re entirely the one to blame for letting him think it`s real.
Also, a friend of mine allowed his 8YO son to play GTA Vice City, and when he asked his son why he was killing people, the son answered "They are bad guys, they have to die, but it`s just a video game daddy" Excellent parenting. He also never lets him play it without supervision.
Also, yeah, none of these deaths were caused by video games themselves, just mentally-unstable people. If anyone hasn`t figured that out yet *cough* Jack Thompson *cough*
*hides the bodies*
I guess their saving throw failed ;)no but this is really bad i feel awful for these poor people
There were people killing themselves over Dungeons & Dragons as well (before video games). People like this need mental help with their addiction.
You know you`ve got anger issues when you have to search your room for your keyboard`s Escape key...
