Yet another example of parenting FAIL! It's 18-rated for a reason. Letting a 13 year old play a violent game is such a dumb move! #smw{-_-2}
Video games don't cause people to become violent. I think the bigger (actual) parenting fail was not noticing that their child was a complete psychopath. Where were they?

Something's telling me this 13-year-old has other issues. He's fixated on competitive gaming and takes it way too seriously, to the point he argues with and attacks other people over disagreements with them. While some of the children who play M-rated or 18+ games online are admitably annoying, I can't immediately blame the game or the parents for buying the game when so many kids don't go out and commit acts of violence just because their video games are violent. Now, if the parents knew about the child's tendencies and still bought this for him, then they share the burden of blame.

Especially given the quoted point, this kid does not get enough supervision in general. Who is to say that other forms of media such as movies, or the belief that edginess is cool, weren't influential in all of his behavior? Who was giving him guidance and structure so that this didn't develop into a dangerous passion? If his parents did make a legitimate effort and he simply did not respond, then he either needs professional help or to be locked up. As it stands, the kid is a menace to society.

The problem with video games is that it's still a fairly new form of media. No one's going to blame movies because they've been around for over a century. Video games didn't become popular until 20-30 years ago, making them an easy scapegoat for things like this. Besides, would you rather blame an "innocent child" or something known for having a large amount of violence (especially now with the rise of FPS games)?
...what? I think this boy has some problems because, who would let him play a violent game and do something brutal like that to a friend?

Besides, I blame the parents for that, 'cause why they weren't there for caring him on first place? If so, then they could have avoided the slashing.
If the 13 year old is already a Dad, there's bigger problems here.


Give me a break. The media makes the game sound like it was created to turn nice angel like children into murderous psychopathic demons.

This. Another reason why when little kids play CoD I kind of roll my eyes. Why do parents allow their children to play this sort of thing? It won't improve their social skills, they'll pick up colorful language (not just from the game, but from the other online players), and try to imitate what they see in-game. Plus some most likely get addicted to these sort of games and don't finish their schoolwork and thus lower their grade and education.

Today's society I tell you...

Duke Nukem 3D was pretty violent and I was playing it when I was 12. I didn't slash anybody's throat.

*Sigh* This again? I've already had to put up with an incident like this in my town. I personally despise FPSs with all of my being, but I don't blame the game on this. I blame the kid for not noticing he had a problem and the parent for not asking enough and letting him play a game seriously out of his age level.

Dude: Ok, you make Arse-ee-yus sound dumb when you say it that way.


This proves AGAIN that 18+ Games + Kids who are younger then 18= Violence.#w{>=(}

Well, I heard that he ate hot dogs. This proves AGAIN that hot dogs + kids who are younger than 18= Violence.
The Post Hoc Ergo Propter fallacy strikes again.

Well. He slashed someone's throat at the age of 13, over an Xbox game he shouldn't even be playing. That's another point down for the human race.

Apparently..

He's also been busy fucking... at the age of 13-14.

Watch out, here comes some extreme cursing (not really): WHY DO SO MUCH KIDS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 PLAY THAT KIND OF GAMES? GRRRRR

It's not movies or videos games fault. I watched 18 rated films when I was 5. I'm not fucked up and I played GTA with my cousion when we were 10. Still not fucked up.

All it comes down to is what the person who does crazy things are like. It's a weird world we live in and when people blame video games they should blame the people who got that said game for the kid.

EDIT: In short you'll always get one f'd up person.
Couldn't agree more with dudes. Almost everyone played a game they "shouldn't have played" before and yet almost nobody goes crazy like that kid. Otherwise I think about 90% of today's youth would have to be murderers which doesn't seem to be a reliable statistic when compared to how it really is.
Also to you have to remember that violent crime right now is at a historically all time low right now. This is the most peaceful time in human history to be alive right now.

Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Oh, and the media tends to blame games for things like that.

It makes the headline more inflammatory, so more people will buy it.

The game really had nothing to do with the murder.

As for what they might publish next?
