Finally GTA isn't blamed for a shooting but this time it is Halo

September 7, 2008 2:13am CST
According to reports and an official investigation, it is believed an eleven year old boy who died from a gunshot was trying to imitate scenes from the Halo video game. The boy reportedly took a gun and tried to recreate some things that had occurred in the game but with an automatic rifle it can be confusing as to whether its loaded or not and this confusion is expected to have led to his death. Do you think videos games are getting violent now a days??

Video games have been violent for a long time and violence in video games sells. Now, if I'm not mistaken, Halo is either rated T for teen (13 and up) or M for Mature. (17 and up) This boy was neither of those and shouldn't have been playing the game in the first place. His parents were completely irresponsible and probably should've sent the kid into get help a long time ago.

Video games can be somewhat violent but they have have ratings so younger kids cant play the games unless parents buy for them. I dont think they should be blaming halo for this accident though.

If he had not been trying to reenact Halo or a video game then he might have tried the same thing with a tv show or movie or just his own imagination ala Gi Joe and cops and robbers. Halo is not to blame for human stupidity.
