    At least they plead guilty. Otherwise, it's as sad as, "The devil made me do it."

    *sniff sniff*
    I smell something foul in the air...

    Oh, yep, Jack Thompson is coming *hides*


    Srsly though, this sucks, don't blame the game PERIOD, the parents are just dumbshits, especially if they wanna blame a video game, and comparing video games to meth is just as ridiculous. Really sucks for those kids though, here's hoping they get better.

    It's a good thing I stopped playing games this year, because pressure on the industry is coming on stronger than ever, and I can't handle government regulation.

    Oh, shit, it's worse than that. They're blaming it on D&D. Somebody call Jack Chick!

    Only not really. Like in England, where a game was just banned (Manhunt 2). Or South Korea, where a man quit his job to focus on playing MMORPGs, and did so until he died of exhaustion.

    Seriously, what dumbass would ignore their child because of a game? I do what my parents tell me, even if I'm at an important part. Sure, I get pissed, but at least I get off my ass and do it. These are the kind of people that are gonna go to hell, not just Hitler and all that shit. These stories make me so pissed off, I want to be the lawyer to sentence them. Jackasses
