Video games a criminal has played. - Page 2

post #11 of 31
I think games really aren't the direct cause when people commit such crimes. If you act like that based on a video game, something is already really wrong with you. Whether games are an indirect cause (which is a possibility) or not, isn't really reason enough to soley blame games. But who's to say the person wouldn't find something else to trigger whatever they may have lurking in their mind?

I tend to want to commit crimes because the players I play with are so stubborn. The game does not make me want to throw flaming bags of poop at people, the players do.

Wow, After playing Minecraft last night, I really want to make a huge pixel sword and start chasing people down the street for "Stealin' mah diamonds!"

Actually lol, Grand Theft Auto feeds my slight desire to blow stuff up with cars. If it wasn't for a safe simulator, I might just have to take that ramp at 100mph in real life wink.gif lol!

Any legitimate psychologist will tell you this is utter nonsense; and those who are acting this way are probably mentally ill themselves. This thankfully has not happened to me. Before I ask my questions to you the reader, please obey all of overclock.net administrative team’s rules prior to posting. No writing the names of former criminals or the events. What are your feelings toward the idea of violent video games being either partially or fully responsible for a person acting out on a murderous rampage? If you knew a game in your collection was played by a murder, would you throw it in the trash? Do you think there should be warning labels on certain games boxes for those who have mental illnesses? Anything else clean you would like to say?

what kind of games are partially responsible for crimes when there were no video games?

Video games, smidieo games.

More murderers and criminals have played card games like Poker than any number of "video game killers". You don't see the idiots on TV calling for card games being outlawed.
