Parents shouldn't ban video games. They could, for example, in stead of GTA4 get the kid GTA2 if he's behaving bad.

sad, but is it India or Russia?

The true question is: why was his life so empty that he didn't have anything other than video games to live for?

Russia has a depressing economy right now.

A lot of kids in the street starving, begging for food/money.

well i dont think bad economy makes children kill themselfs. most poor countrys have way less suicide than rich countrys. i do think that there must have been much mmuch more problems than just a gaming addiction. anyway i dont know if i will ever understand why a 10 year old even thinks about killen himself. he must have been psycologicly very sick.

your parents banning your gaming might of been the straw the broke the camels back thus hiding a multitude of problems that he may have been experiencing.

Generally countries that are facing economic problems tend to have higher suicide rates. Russia is the third country in the world at 35.1 suicides per 100,000 people. US is 46th.
