(con't)
,then you can`t blame the lack there of either. Third, they use the Virginia Tech tragedy as an example to support their claim, but that`s just a single incident. I could do the same to support the opposite. Just a couple of weeks ago, there was a story on IAB about a kid who shot his brother because he wouldn`t pass the controller. There, I just supported the claim that voilent videogames games cause real life violence. I`ll even do one better, there`s a story on the front page of IAB now about a stabbing during a wait for GTA4. This is easy, and I didn`t even have to leave IAB!! Some would dismiss these people as "just idiots", "Videogames had nothing to do with it!" If that`s the case, then violent people who DON`T play videogames are "just idiots" as well, and the lack of videogames has nothing to do with their violent behavior. In short, these people aren`t scientists, they`re fakes.
