Do MMORPGs Create Serial Killers and Mass Murderers?

We’ve probably all heard the stories of horrible things happening to gamers or to the loved ones of gamers- a kid who binged for so long he died at his computer playing his favorite game or maybe the mother who neglected her children and forgets to feed her baby because she is so consumed with a video game. Of all the games that get a bad rap, MMORPGs often rank near the top (PC, Tag Invalid)

No. Crazy people are going to be crazy on their own without the help of video games.

These people have deep underlying issues. Games are just something to blame for their actions.

Seriously...

It really really pissed me off when the press jumped on this. Out of the whole manifesto that Brevik wrote only a smidget of it even mentioned video games. And he said he played them for the same reason as anyone else. For fun.

The fact that the press jumped on THAT rather than what he actually thinks justifies his actions is appaling. Downright fabrications and lies.

I saw articles saying he used CoD to 'train' how to commit a massacre. Even WoW. It's an insult to the victims to pin the cause of such an atrocity on something so miniscule as video games.

This article is just as bad. Just putting the question out there is just backwards. Hit seeking trash.
