GTA is not the problem
I was reading at http://joystiq.com/entry/1234000620042171/ and I just couldn't believe what I saw. Another stupid ass person decided to try and pull a GTA stunt. This time it didn't involve any guns, but rather a car. Two friends were driving, and one of them decided to try and pull off one of the stunts they performed in GTA. One of them dies, and the other goes to court for manslaughter. He gets released though, because the jury just ate up the bullshit he feed them. Apparently he was able to convince those dumb asses that the game made him do it. The way I see it (the truth) is that the games are not the problem. The problem is the people playing the games. While age does have a large impact, it really has nothing to do with it. The people that see these games and think to themselves, "Hey, I should try that out, it looks awesome" obviously have mental problems, and/or lack of common sense. The bottom line is people are responsible for their own actions. The only exception to this is, of course, mentally ill people, in which case someone should be watching over them and taking care of them.
