Games should not be the blame for any incidents in real life. If someone see's something in a game and then acts it out in real life, this is not the games thought, the person should never be allowed to play the game. This boils down to the sick twisted mind of the offender. What happened in norway is sad, i hope the guy gets strapped to a bomb and sent straight into the taliban HQ, coz hes just as bad as them.

He was also a religious fanatic so do we ban or heavily edit the bible because it influenced him? The guy was sick and twisted end of story.

Actually, he wasn't a religious fanatic. In his manifesto he describes himself as a "Christian Atheist". Which basically means he only holds Christian values as part of his culture and politics. Not because he actually believes it.

Sorry. He was also a Christian Atheist so do we ban or heavily edit the bible because it influenced him? The point was no matter what people say his influences and politics where the fact of the matter is he was an evil man who did a sick thing.

games are not the cause of violence, its the morons holding the guns, who usually come out of violent homes.

its actually parents who should be blamed, but we all know thats a topic that is usually thrown out the window, and we move to blame the easiest thing... games.

Well written little piece there. Indeed sometimes people are just wired wrong... nothing you can do about it, you just hope they are getting the help they need.
