Some horribly sad news was recently released. 15 year old Brandon Crisp of Canada has been found dead after having running away in mid-October.
Even sadder still, the reason according to his parents that this happened is that the boy was angry with them for taking away his Xbox 360 and Call of Duty 4 game because his grades were sliding.
My heart goes out to Brandon's parents. It really does. My heart sank a bit when I first heard the news, because it really is horrible beyond belief.
However, amidst my heartache that this has happened, and my attempting to understand what these parents must be going through, I can't help but shake my head once again at the outright lack of responsibility and finger pointing that continues to plague gaming.
