1) #4, I was mearly posting something that might happen. I for one don't see anything wrong with GTA3. It's a game, so sue me if I'm one of the few people who can differentiate the pixels on a screen to someone standing in front of me.
2)#7 (DrHaggard), Where do you get off calling me irresponsible? You do NOT know me. So maybe I can say this (I'm assuming you have kids). Take the time out of your so called busy day to sit down and talk to your kid and EXPLAIN the difference of killing a rendered person/object on the screen than assuming people are irresponsible for giving someone a GAME. It is a god damned GAME.
I don't understand where if I give someone a game that they can associate it with doing that action in real life. Maybe I've been playing games too long or something, but the fact is, @ columbine it WASN'T the games that made those kids kill their fellow students & teachers, it was the fact that they were picked on and they were in a state of depression. When you are depressed you think irrationally. Games don't make you depressed, non-social activity with both your peers & family coupled along with being made fun of gets you depressed.
It seems, my two friends, that you have let the media get the best of you and make you think more how the media wants you to, rather than think for yourselves. If you did think for yourselves, you'd realize what I have said is true.
