    Media outlets are always this way. It almost always the social games as well. Stuff that you would play on FB such as farm ville. Or VR games such as second life. The blame is going to go on the video game when she goes on trial, mark my words.

    Pretty much anyone can be made into a serial killer from a office worker, mover, dentist, doctor and various other people.

    Plus lets be honest gamers who are serial killers generally kill less people then the regular ones still bad but not really more then one or two people and most of them are young.

    People are now saying that Gamers are killers to be. We're like, the Otakus or the world or something.

    I think I remember that. An asian couple?

    If you think about it though, there's really nothing you can do about neglectful parents if no one notices beforehand.
    I remember posting about this woman who starved / beat her kid or something while playing Farmville?

    Absolutely disgusting.

    Actually, the woman slapped the baby because it was crying while she was playing Farmville, and the baby died of that (for some reason)

    And this is the reason why people blame games for bad behavior. (ya know what I'm talking about)

    This is the reason why I think the Koreans nowadays are rather hopeless.

    You might want to look up the term serial killer. The story does not lead one to believe this lady was going around killing toddlers on a regular basis.

    A sad story, nonetheless, of course. And no, these kinds of stories don't give gamers a bad name; they just bring to light a very serious problem some people may have with certain types of games under certain types of circumstances and/or situations. It's not something that should be swept under the carpet, nor is it cause to condemn gaming. It's something society needs to recognize and deal with, period.

    I just realized that my post in this thread sounds really pedophile-ish...

    I'm not changing it, but just know that that wasn't my intention.
