Well, while they want to play the blame game, lemme counter with this..

The kid is 8 years old. ... in the hell is he doing with a copy of GTA IV? What irresponsible parents didn't pay attention to the ESRB rating on the box that clearly shows that he had no business with the game? Rated M for MATUUUUURE.

Someone please make sure that this isn't just glossed over and it's brought up in the investigation. That "Blame Rockstar" s*** is getting old.

novalord2: If he was playing the game a few minutes before shooting her, it really may have played a role in this.

I think people are forgetting how impressionable 8 year olds are to fiction.

Rubbish. Eight year olds can tell the difference between fantasy and reality. They're children, not mental incompetents. The videogame isn't important. What is important is to ask who allowed an eight year old child access to a loaded gun.
