That's terrible - do you have a link? I'll go looking around for one, but if you have one to hand I'll take a look...Originally Posted by EKAY123
EDIT: Okay, I've had a look around - there's no other murder than the one I mentioned. It's become revamped news in the last few weeks, because of Manhunt 2, but what you described was in fact the exact same case that happened years ago which was disproved in court to be nothing to do with videogames (the Pakeerah/Leblanc murder case - is that the one?) as said many times but ignored by the mainstream media.
If this isnt the case, you really have to point me in the right direction, because nothing has been noted in the mainstream press that I read, nor the gaming press, which for something of that size would be fairly noticeable on my radar (being an ex full time journo). Seeing as there's still no direct link to games violence and real life violence -a constant issue that I feel will never be resolved, as people are still trying to link every other entertainment to violence- I honestly do believe you've got mixed up here with a very old and false story, because if it was as clear cut as you describe then it would be an open and shut case, which it clearly isnt (a first page Google search would offer that and Rockstar wouldnt have a leg to stand on for the sequel's release otherwise - NONE of this has been mentioned in the Manhunt 2 banning in ANY reports, which is strange to say the least).
Please fire over the links to what you're referring to, and I'll take a look.
