The funny thing is Australia has rarely any murder by kids by guns that is.....

Neonridr1676d ago

PowerVR she seems to have blond hair, but you can see in her roots and her eyebrows that she originally was a brunette.

Exactly. This video was pretty poorly done, just as any violent video game news story is.

I mean right around the two minute mark, Question: "Why do people enjoy grand theft auto?" Answer: " Well research from a university shows it's because it passes time, is relaxing, challenging, and fun"

So they needed a university to produced the results that describe every video game ever made?

this video was extremely well done, much better than 99 percent of other news coverage.

you dont know what youre talking about kiddo

You're right. I'm sorry man.

I do find it kind of funny though that the guy with grammatical imperfections is calling the other a "kiddo."

The reporter could have been less judgmental towards gaming, but I do like how the psychiatrist said that the majority of gamers are over the age of 18 nowadays.

Sadly, many people still believe that games are just a silly hobby for kids (which is probably why they buy games like GTA for their own children), so it's nice that he attempted to dispel that stereotype.

Parents need to realize that just because something is called a "game" that doesn't mean it will be appropriate for their children. Many games aren't aimed at kids anymore, and most gamers are in their 20s (or older) anyway.

Seriously as a parent kids should not be playing this game and parents should not buy it for them like idiots. My kids cant even watch me play it or i'll switch too something more kid friendly.

When I'm looking at GTAV videos, I make my 2 boys leave the Den.

Nicole Kidman is a Aus news women? She's been in some very sexy R rated movies.

IanVanCheese1676d ago

went to the midnight release, so many kids there with their parents. They have no one to blame but themselves.

Pozzle1676d ago

Same. At the midnight release I went to, there were more parents buying the game for their kids than there were adults buying the game on their own. And some of the kids couldn't have been older than five or six. D:

Software_Lover1676d ago

That is just sad on so many levels. I rarely let my kids watch me play BF3. They have to catch me off guard.

And how many parents are still going to get Little Timmy this game when he asks for it?

Too many...
