8 year old kills Grandmother after playing GTA IV

Well, this is bad timing for Rockstar. Tragic for the family of course, but who lets an 8 year old play Grand Theft Auto AND leaves easy gun access in the house for the kid to find?


I put all the blame for this tragic incident on the stupidity of the parents.

Oh here we go. You know logic will not prevail and there'll be a sensationalist reaction blaming Videogames.

"However “investigators have learned that the juvenile suspect was playing a video game on the Play Station III Grand Theft Auto IV, a realistic game that has been associated with encouraging violence and awards points to players for killing people"

I didn't know GTA had points. These dumb people will look for any kind of scapegoat.

..I almost don't believe this story is true (or perhaps I don't want to). Points for killing people? Pfft... please. Come on people. Some terrible "investigators" you got there.
