People who off themselves over a game were already screwed up. No one can blame it on just a game, because that's what it is, a game. It's not real, it's a bunch of strings of program. Sure, I can look at a string of data and say 'Yup, that's sure depressing!'
Technicly you can't say that, because while it is just 'a string of data', it still appears as a picture, and games have advanced so much that that data can create quite a realistic atmosphere. However I agree with one thing: It's just a fucking game. Anyone who can't tell the difference between game and reality shouldn't even be allowed playing games, in fact they almost deserve death, but that's just asinine to say.
My point is: Games aren't the cause, people are just retards.
