Violent car racing video games are suspected to have influenced two 14-year-old boys who shot at police with a high-caliber rifle during a dramatic chase near Tauranga.
Basically the police officer passed a comment on what 'he' believed caused the teenagers to do what they had. How is that gaming news. Now if the teens had expressed that they got the idea from a game then thats a different story - but as it stands, looks like anything will get approved on this site.
If I see another article about RL violence being a result of video games, I'm going to bust a nut! The officer says "they don't come up with these things on their own". Ummm ya... because it's not like these kids don't see stuff like this on the daily news, or in movies, or on any TV show!... it's ALL because of video games! Give it a rest already!
Pretty stupid to blame videogames for some idiot kids.
N' we just keep spreadin' it around like it's real news. This is b.s. like 1 said. If that website actually considered that news, not the circumstance itself but puttin' the spin on it to take yet another shot @ the gaming industry, then OKay, keep n' read it there.
Why can't it be blamed on movies or stupid people instead of putting the blame on Video games. Damn it.
I wonder how it escaped their minds that the real fact is that 14 year old kids had actual access to a high powered rifle that resulted in the fire fight ... not fooking games !!!
