(NYPost)   Subby is absolutely sure playing the video game "Grand Theft Auto IV" had nothing whatsoever to do with this 8-year-old boy shooting an elderly woman to death   (nypost.com) divider line 153

CK2005: My favorite thing to do in the game is to push people off bridges or down flights of steps.  I'll never get over watching them tumble down the stairs.


Yes, or pushing them into the water. Or then getting a dummy mad enough to take a swing, only to hit another bystander, causing the cops to freak out & start shooting.

I also enjoy setting off big traffic jams, then making a damaged car blow up. BOOM!

I love Saint's Row as well, but the stupid "realism" of GTA IV is also enjoyable in its way.

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.
