    Best part -

    The game had been given to Mario a few days earlier, as a birthday present.

    "Mario is obsessed. He's forever playing on his PlayStation, and we bought him FIFA 2009 because we didn't want him playing violent games," his mother told Il Corriere.

    Did anyone else open it and think "Wow, he's not American!"?

    Cant wait to see how media tries blame video games for this as the parents said they dont let him have violent ones.

    If it was this years game he would have come at his Dad with a chainsaw.

    Hahaha yes!

    It's unbelievable how parents can raise their children up like this.
    It's all nurture here, nothing to do with the gaming side of things.

    I doubt it,s the kid's probably mentally unhinged. Bad/abusive parents don't buy their children game consoles, offer advice on said consoles and show concern their child is playing too violent games.

    In fairness to the lad, it is blood annoying when people tell you what to do when you're playing a game.

    Not yet but he seems to be falling over every few seconds as if he is drunk, perhaps this is just the start of his alcoholism? :teehee:

    I don't think it would have been abusive parenting, but the entire opposite. He was probably spoilt to the extreme that he couldn't see what was wrong with what he did.
