    i dont think it is logical at all that kids can kill people and blame it on games its completly ludacris. there are ratings on the games and warnings.so i think the game companys have done there part its the parents that should be blamed not the companys or stores for there products

    I think you're right. People continue talking about video games and violence and they forget other things like movies, where violence is actual and not virtual like video games. A family that sues a company if their child has done something bad just want to throw the responsibility somewhere else and not at them, which is the right think.

    For the kids taking guns to the school and killing their friends, we should blame society and family environment, not video games.

    Gee, I've been playing Postal 2 quite a bit lately and haven't gone on a shooting rampage (although I have plenty of hardware). I guess it has something to do with having good parents that cared enough to teach me little things like reality and right/wrong. Oh well.

    If these idiot parents actually win, they will be getting rewarded for their crappy parenting._X_X_X_X_X_[small]I don't see the glass as half empty or half full. I just want to know if anyone spit in it.[/small]

    Anyone who plays a videogame, and then goes out and buys a gun and kills someone should be locked up in an asylum until he plays KnightRider....

    Wait, wouldn't he be angry again because of the crapness of the game???
