    Games, like most media, may have some influences in behavior. However, it wasn't a key influence, or these events would be more common. Didn't watch video since phone is racist against youtube.

    Media can certainly be a channel for a crazy t' act on, but 'till big brother makes everythin' not E-rated illegal and guns magically disappear into thin air, massacres 'n such will keep on goin'. Look at the problem itself to resolve the issue, not the catalyst; there'l always be another catalyst to take it's place, after all.

    As we all know the first killing happened when someone played tennis for two.
    Millions of people play games each day, one person plays them then goes out on a killing spree, YES THESE GAMES ARE BAD FOR YOU!!

    yep, i agree. One person acting out of what was probly a 'mental snap', has nothing to do with video games.
    Anyway, that is what the age restrictions are there for right? :/

    In today's edition The Daily Express again mentions video games. “The killer's uncle Jonathan Lanza said his nephew had been taking an anti-psychotic drug,” it says. “He was also reportedly fixated with violent video games.”

    psycho confirmed
    dont blame the game blame the person

    Also
    “Chillingly, his favourite video game was said to be a shockingly violent fantasy war game called Dynasty Warriors which is thought to have given him inspiration to act on his darkest thoughts," the paper said in a report published yesterday.
    Its not that violent, if they played it they would know

    Dynasty Warriors' tirelessly repetitive gameplay is just one big massacre. But aye, it really ain't all-that graphically violent though. It sure as shit ain't no Ninja Gaiden.

    As someone who had a horrid childhood growing up and wanted very badly to shoot up my school and was very close to doing so, let me be the first to say, VIDEO GAMES HELPED EASE THE PAIN. When I was angry at the world and wanted revenge, I'd sit down and get lost in a game. The violent ones let me release my anger in a safe environment. These fvcking morons who have never played a game need to shut the fvck up. It seriously angers me that everyone has to blame something and not the person. THE PEOPLE WHO SHOOT UP PLACES ARE THE ONES TO BLAME. NOT GUNS. NOT VIDEO GAMES. NOT MUSIC, MOVIES, OR TV. THE FVCKING PERSON WHO DID IT IS TO BLAME! They are the one who decided to do it. No one else decided for them. Shit like this is why I legitimatly hate people
