A sad story, and it's a shame that the focus is on the wrong place yet again.

Seems a bit irresponsible for the Oregonian to imply that games played a part in this, before we know why it happened.

Funnily enough, the article only mentions two first person shooters, and no other mention of any other game the guy has been playing. Just because you're fond of one type of game it seems unlikely you'd only have that type of game. I am with you on the irresponsibility and it drives me insane.

What's weird is that the comments and the community that have read this haven't picked up that the videogame is an issue at all. I think that is very telling with most people blaming scandels and the area in which the killings happened as the major factor.
