Daily Mirror prints 'GTA Massacre' front page

I read this story on the Mirror's website earlier. I would say the Navy picked the wrong person in the first place. No matter what anybody says it wasnt GTA that taught him how to fire a SA80 assault rifle.

Sad story all round.

Last time i played GTA i thought it would be a good idea to hit people round the head with a baseball bat and steal money from dead corpses but i remembered that im not an insane d*ck putting a bad reputation to video games!

To be honest, beeing stuck in a submarine for months on end would drive me mad, I bet GTA was the only thing keeping him sane! I bet it all went wrong when they went up Paris in the submarine and went in Seine .......

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

so watching films makes you smoke and playing games makes you kill people? I love the media and their scare tactics

I bet you'd love being trapped in a confined space with lots of men away from home.

I love the cheap blow at the bottom of the page. Fair play to the Fail, they will persist but simply because they know they have nothing else on gaming. Maybe one day the tabloids will get their wish and such games will be blamed. When a loon goes on a killing spree and his xbox is taken off him I hope it does the trick, but something tells me it's not the best medicine!

Try to laugh at it people and not get too wound up, these rags are only good for tits and sport and they know it.

Why does GTA get all the flack for everything that happens, you never see COD getting blamed for this crap.
