at 16 and 17, you know the difference between reality & fantasy. To blame a video game is a cop out. What really pisses me off is the fact that the media is more than happy to oblige in blaming video games for such situations. No parent wants to face the fact that their kid is a fuck up, let alone that their kid is a fuck up because they did nothing to intervene besides drink a fucking latte and tell the kids nanny that little jo jo has baseball practice at 3.

Sorry, I have a big issue with the gaming industry making crap games right now, and having the media and parental groups up their asses isn't going to get a good one out anytime soon.

Ugh. I'd really like to see some headlines like "Negligent, irresponsible parents at fault for child's injury/death/etc" or hey, even something like "Person responsible for own behavior."

Media reports are dubbing this incident "the Mortal Kombat death", saying that the girl's horrific injuries were caused by Mr Roberts and Ms Trujillo imitating moves from the game.
No... I think the horrific injuries were caused by them BEATING THE FUCK OUT OF THE GIRL. The game is not to blame, the kids HITTING THE GIRL WITH THERE FISTS are to blame.

The person actually commiting the crime is to blame!

Wait... the Mortal Kombat series is still around to be blamed? Or are they blaming a game several years old now?

<sigh> I miss the time when movies were destroying all of society. Or tv. Or music. Or radio. Or... bah, were we always this simplistic?

And I also like how when someone over 25 or so does some heinous crime, he was just "under a lot of stress." Work, family, relationship, etc. Never what movies/TV/music/video games he was into...

Reminds me of the raver quote I would see from time to time about if video games really influenced kids, we'd all be listening to repetitive music in a dark room while eating pills...

I always liked dressing up like a big colorful ghost and chasing after kids munching pills

Nah, you should see them freak out and chase after you when you dangle a bunch of cherries in front of them...
