    Wow ...... just wow :eek:

    As tragic as the story is I have to admit I found it hard keeping a straight face reading it. The stories i'm hearing about these MMORPG communities are becoming truly bizarre. And just imagine when incidents this serious start to hit America :rolleyes:

    It'll be interesting to see how they manage to shift the blame onto videogames while sweeping this bloke's obvious mental issues to the sidelines, I can already see the headlines :rolleyes:

    Can't wait for the 'exclusive' story in the Daily Mail.............................. No doubt it will be another piece of well balanced journalism like they usually produce :rotfl:

    Off on another tangent: There does seem to be a lot of these computer related killings in Asia. You don't hear much about them in good old Europe. I wonder why :confused: Here's another Asia based one, nothing to do with MMORPGs though:

    That's absolutely crazy! I guess MMORPG's can be a bad thing to those who are pretty sad, lonely and without a decent real life existance. I can easily see that some people will relish these other worlds where they can achieve power & Status that they could only dream of in reality. I've played quite a few of them but i've never stuck at them for long as they are always full of sado's who take the whole thing far too seriously. It's just a game!! They could actually be good fun if they weren't inhabbited by sado's but I guess these games are always going to attract them.

    To place such importance on an item from a video game is just ridiculous and if people can't distinguish between a real life item and an item made up of pixels and statistics on a computer screen then they should be locked up.

    Again it's not the games that are at fault - just some of the rather unstable people who play them! You are right though - the Daily Mail (not actually being able to see or understand what is happening) will no doubt go and produce another piece of pathetic & unfounded paper selling, parent scaring journalism. I've always wondered - has anyone ever been incited to murder someone after reading a Daily Mail article, i've often had the urge but thankfully have the restraint required not to follow through on my actions :D :rotfl:

    Often, trouble is I don't know the addresses of the Daily Mail journos so they are safe for the moment. :D :p :devil:

























    *EDIT* just in case there are any Daily Mail Journalists out there reading this who don't have a sense of humour and fear for their lives..... I'm just Kidding!! :rolleyes:
