    i'm not blaming only the game... the game is to blame for only a minority... its more to do with the few weirdos who get lost in it all

    How can anyone sit on a sofa whilst two babies are crushed underneath?! It's sickening and it just shocks me about how in-humane people in this world can actually be. It's terrifying.

    That is horrible. Makes you wonder why people like that are loose in society...

    Anyway, I don't think games are entirely to blame (yep, did this in Media, so it's a speciality ). While we can see that certain individuals may be influenced by constantly playing games, shown in the hypodermic syringe theory, the majority of people are not affected by games in such a drastic manner, even over time as the Cultural Effects theory claims. Think how many people play games, and how few of them commit crimes.

    :toofunny:. Yet how true. We cannot simply blame the games for influencing the man. This hyped-up anti-gamer 'atomised society' is mainly created by the media searching for a scapegoat - in this pollitically correct world, it's never the killer's fault, it's always "the movie child's play influenced them" or "manhunt influenced him" - the Daily Mail is especially prone to grabbing the accused's hobby and blaming it for their actions. Yet normally there is little truth in these allegations - for example, I play games such as GTA & Halo, but that doesn't mean I grab the nearest handgun and carjack a car .

    Anyway, essay over!

    Saruman, are you a fellow Edge reader?

    Anyway, enough with the stupid generalisations about videogames. I bet that half the people against them are those who were just really bad at Pong and Space Invaders and hold this against games for the rest of their life.

    yes.. the psycho ... under the influence of the computer game
    Don't be silly.

    its not all games... its just the games that are violent and addictive
    Again it's the people that are to blame. Is watching the news violent and addictive because of all the atrocities around the world?

    If you don't even play games why comment?

    The baby, who was "grey and floppy". Computer games are fine, if you play them in moderation and can see them as "games only". This **** seems really sad to be so emmersed in computer games. He deserves to sent to prison and get the ***** kicked out of him (there is plenty of that inside him I am sure).

    Again, his hobby has nothing to do with the methods of violence this man committed. He's quite obviously crazy, and furthermore, I'd place a safe bet that he was under the influence of alcohol.

    I too play extremely violent videogames at times. However, you're much more likely to provoke an aggressive reaction from me when I'm immersed in a good book.
