Sure there is a big issue with media bombarding us with images of violence and sex. but people have the power to turn that TV off.
These companies sell entertainment, rather than focus on the product being sold, have a look at the people who are buying it and ask yourself why are they buying it.
Most people buy these games for escapism and to do the things you know you wouldn't want to do in real life.
If an individual has violent tendencies anyway, sure they will be into these games...but that’s just a septum, not the cause.
While I'm not a fan of GTA, I don't believe that this game makes people into who they are. Therefore you can't hold take 2 or Sony responsible for the actions of some nutter.
