    U.S.A. kid jumps off a building

    http://wcbstv.com/topstories/brookly....2.985242.html

    Who do we blame?
    The kid?
    The game?
    The mother that brought him up?
    The U.S.A.?
    or simply nature that allow the proces of thinking or rather non-thinking?

    The first question isn't really the appropriate approach for this case. We always start to blame when finding reasons, at most, it clouds our rationality.

    Why is there always a need to blame someone... shit happens. I can't see though how the game is connected to this, but else, games are often used to explain tragedy's later, and to cover up the real problems and such...

    look like using a large plastic bag as a parachute doesnt work....




    ..... anyway, its sad that a 9 year old boy died, but why is there a game behind each disaster (involving teenagers/childs) that ocurres in the usa????

    Linking events to games is somehow becoming a trend as to trying to reach for an explanation.

    This was just a tragic accident and I don't see anyone to blame in this.

    As pretty much everyone feels that way, I think this thread will be moved to the GY.

    If you wish to talk about how video games influence society jump into the Games Section and start a link there.
