In recent news, an 11-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the head, killing himself instantly. Tragic yes, but this incident was blamed on Halo. If this boy had never played Halo, they believe he would have never taken a gun, pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger.
What really gets to me about this whole article is the blaming of Halo for this child's poor upbringing. Let's take the lighter road first: He was re-enacting Halo. I would like to hear the evidence first as to why they came to this conclusion. Secondly, if he truly was re-acting Halo, what part was he imagining? I do not remember a part where you put your gun to your head and pull the trigger.
