I've played video games my whole life. Got Twisted Metal when I was young, not once have I tried to attach a gun to my car and blow people up. I've had GTA since it first hit PlayStation, not once have I stole a single thing or killed anybody.

FACT the media blew this out of proportion and now kids see an escape route because of it. You get busted, blame GTA, get some media attention and an easier sentence.

To be honest if people were not so rude, idiotic, and mean then we wouldn't have so many issues. And guess what, thats the media (news networks) themselves creating this issue, not video games. I was watching a comedy bit on Youtube where they simply went out and acted like goofballs on the beach, every person that walked by was a douche. Combine that with a GOOD majority of internet comments and you get the jist of how messed up people are. If this article gets popular enough you might even see it here.

It's like Kevin Bacon connections all over again. You can connect 9/11 to the release of the original iPod or JFK being shot to the release of Avatar the movie if you try hard enough. Just pull some Dan Brown and connect some random dots. This is what has become of modern journalism.

but the article was defending video games, the title is pure sarcasm.

edit: this reply was actually meant for Istanbull

These kind of articles are really boring, why? Because as mrsatan says, random connections are nothing new.

This is what has become of modern videogame journalism.

Games arent the root cause of depravity. Before the video game era ppl were still messed up. But thats not say they play a completely innocent role. Any form of media can be used negatively.

Its because some people (mainly journalists, people that don't play games etc) can't think of anything else to blame so they just blame it on games.
