aaaah the sweet smell of anti-gaming propaganda being boosted....
DnD Player kills co-worker? WTF? Why couldn't they have said "Schitzophrenic man kills co-worker"

They mention a small blerb about him being schizo in the article, but IN BIG BOLD FUCKING LETTERS they exploit the fact that he happened to play DnD.

Argh!!!! Fucking dumbass media >_<

'But Flemons' lawyer says he is schizophrenic with a psychotic obsession with fantasy role-playing games, including Dungeons & Dragons.'

But the fact that he played the game doesn't have to do with him killing him, Just how he did it. So yeah, Pretty irrelevent. Jack Thompson now has something else to add to his 'why games are bad' argument :<

It's just natural for old people to blame new media or forms of entertainment, why do we even bother?

Never mock another persons grammar/punctuation or even understanding of English, if hes from a non-English speaking country, and yours is even worse than his.

Makes you look like an idiot, but I guess you dont have to do much for that.

No it does not. It makes people desperate. Since air quality is going down all the time and amount of people breathing is increasing maybe some criminals have decided that for selfprotecting purposes they reduce amount of people breathing, namely killing them. So I blame green radicalism for random killings.

And for that this post were not totally offtopic : it's just plain stupid to blame rolegames. Compared to how many people kill others with (legal) firearms in USA and how many kills with sword I dare to say that it's not that big problem. And like someone said, only thing that rolegames mayhaps affected was method. Don't blame rolegames, blame poor social- and healthcare system!
