Crazy people are crazy people, with or without videogames. And they don't explode when hit by sunlight, I don't give a f**k how crazy they are.

"The game, which is popular with children, rewards players for slaying their opponents"
Says it all really, doesn't it?
MariaHelFutura  +   349d ago
No. There are many other factors to creating a psychotic child. Enviromental issues, would be at the top of the list. Being reward in games w/ XP, trophies or whatever is not an excuse. I play Borderland constantly w/ my son and we are not farming, theiving murderers. We have a great home, a happy family and lots of love and respect for each other. If you have a child that has a hard time deciphering between reality and fantasy and has little to no parenting, videogames might not be the hobby for your child. But that's not gamings fault. Like I said, Crazy people are crazy people with or without videogames.

"Parent's might not know"

"Parents"

The author thinks Gears is a free online game.

"Ignorance!" = British writers.

Edit--- Hang on a second...

To the author of this article...the 'newspaper' article did not bash anything or claim anything whatsoever. The simply reported....this website are nothing but misleading ****s. The police said the quotes in the article, the newspaper has not sided with anyone. Thank you for attempting to mislead me pixelenemy. The police also stated the game was also an element in the murder, not completely pointing the game out as the cause. This article is misleading simple as. Game journalism is amazing.

"UK Newspaper bashes Gears of War 3, claims it’s the cause of teenage stabbing"

This is simply incorrect.

@MariaHelFutura

I think what he means is that the quote demonstrates the stupidity of the newspaper.

Wtf is wrong with you?! A child got his throat cut and that gives you a boner?! What are you? Some kind of homicidal pedophile? Why don't you do the world a favor and suck on the business end of a double barrel shotgun? I hope you can manage to pull both triggers. You'll probably need to with such a small brain. Maybe you can reload and try again if your not too much of a vegetable. Show some respect you fucking troll!
sherimae2413  +   349d ago
are you mad? thats why i said im glad the victim didnt die and its a relief for me, are you drunk?

ACESupERIC  +   349d ago
Sorry sherimae. I guess I did misunderstand your meaning. Maybe just one trigger then? Hehe
sherimae2413  +   349d ago

Is it bad that I thought of the victim yelling out "Revive Me"!
Emilio_Estevez  +   349d ago
13 year old playing 18+ game online and he is already a father. Sure sounds like the games fault and not the parents who obviously aren't doing what their name implies.

The person that did it is responsible.

I know, I know... I have some crazy theories. I'm such a maverick.

People have been doing crazy shit to each other for crazy reasons for thousands of years (children included). It was'nt video games, violent movies or even bad parenting, some people are just born assholes. if this kid didnt hurt someone over this it would have been something else.

But im sure even back then there was some people pointing the finger at violent cave paintings or some shit and wanted them all to be of people holding hands and smiling in a big circle. I think they were probably told to F off back then.
KillrateOmega  +   349d ago
Yeah. Sure. It's the game's fault that this kid turned out to be a screw-up. Not the parents' fault at all.... /s

I played Mortal Kombat as a kid and I have never attempted to Sub Zero someone and rip their head off and their spine out (or turn another person into a baby).

Damn games, before they came around the world was a peaceful place. I can't think of a single occurrence when someone meant ill will towards anyone else til those products of Satan were released to the unassuming public And corrupted our children.

I still remember when it happened... I was still in school and those filthy video games hadn't reached us yet. Then one of my friends was throwing a party, and his unemployed druggie Video game playing brother rented him a video game bus, filled to the brim with TVs and game consoles, he invited me and 20 other people. It was on a Saturday night and I didn't want to miss church the next morning so I decided to skip out on it, but being stupid irresponsible teenagers, everyone else went anyway... I got the news the next morning, not 30 minutes into the party, there was an argument, they... shurikened each other to death... all of them.

We need to shun all these temptations of the devil before some fool goes all Asura's Wrath on our asses.
