ok I know this has been a topic that has been talked about a lot but it really bugs me when I hear about people who commit crimes and blame it on games like GTA4. first off people who are trying to get these games pulled, jack thompson, should really think before they speak. the games, I think are a great stress relievers because they let you run around killing fake people. this in turn prevents people from killing real people. I don't think that it is a bad thing that underage gamers have to be with there parents to buy an M rated game but it can be very anoying at times. I don't think it's a bad thing because the parents should know what there kids are playing so they can tell them the differences from reallity and fiction in the games. Stupidity causes the violence because the kids are stupid to imitate the stuff they see and the parents are too dumb to tell their kids that you can't kill 100 people and get away with it. There are conciquences to your actions. so what I am saying is that in the end it is not the games that need to be blamed but the parents for not watching what their kids are playing and not telling them the difference between fantasy and reality.
