Sensationalist UK newspaper The Daily Mail has today made astonishing claims that French terrorist Mohammed Merah – who gunned down seven people earlier this year – was inspired to commit his violent acts by playing Call Of Duty.
Great article, well said! Daily Mail love to present the scare tactics of GAMES KILL PEOPLE!
They didn't say games kill people. They said Call of Duty is to blame and I agree. Call of Duty is not a game, it's trash.
millions of dollars and copycat franchises cant be wrong. what shooter in the world is more popular?
That guy probably never played COD, since Radical Islam forbids fun of all kind (Sports, music, guitar's, etc) are forbidden in some muslim country's due to radicalization (at least in mid-east). So of course he never played any games. But then again, could anyone consider COD to be "fun"?
I don't think people outside of the UK know how much of a joke this paper is. It's bad when pretty much everyone (including TV personalities take the p*ss out of it)
Must be a Daily Mail reader on here, how can I tell? Everyone currently has 0 agrees and 1 Disagree :D
They're not as bad as The Sun though
Depends on what you mean, for outright sensationalism and blatant laughable lies the Daily Mail wins hand down. For corporate agendas, deception etc yes then The Sun wins that :)
They might as well blame the weather for this one too. Truth be told, this is what happens when you don't raise your children right and or if you ignore the signs of an early mental illness in your children early on in life.
call of duty does encourage violence it encourages me to shoot at people who give me disagrees lol
The Daily Mail, still holding up it's reputation as an irresponsible and sensationalist rag I see.
Every now and then, we always get a newspaper blames game X for an incident. How about you let the people who did the crime, be held responsible for their actions. Rather than dashing the blame on a medium. Pathetic.
Next theyll blame bad food for kids being fat instead of parents feeding their kids right. Seriously blaming an arcade non realistic in anyway shooter for killing? I guess Microsoft flight simulator is to blame for 9/11 right?
A lot of newspapers published here in UK (i live in Ireland) try to gain sales by rediculous (and for the most part untrue) headlines, just complete hyperbole, and none of it is really regulated, so crap like this is nothing out of the ordinary.
Don't forget the page 3 girls.
Yeah they're right! Now ban CoD please!
