    Re: Ohio teen convicted of killing mom over video game

    This kid obviously had problems, and I doubt those problems were caused by video games. Furthermore, the gaming industry is one of the largest now, video game consoles are found in many many homes not to mention gaming PCs. The shear number of people playing games in some manner is astounding. If video games caused problems, we would see well more than a few isolated cases every couple years related to video games. It has been study, no correlations were found, end of story.

    It was sarcasm. If you want to place blame, look to the parents who raised the kid and then tried to forcefully change a bad situation.

    ScienceDirect - Aggression and Violent Behavior : Parricides : : Characteristics of offenders and victims, legal factors, and treatment issues

    Parricides account for about 2% of all homicides. Perpetrators are typically White middle-class males without a history of prior criminal convictions. Most parricides involve single-victim, single-offender situations, with firearms more likely to be used against fathers than mothers. The popular literature as well as much of the professional literature have presented youths who killed a parent as prosocial individuals who feared for their lives. Adults who killed a parent have typically been presented as suffering from a severe mental disorder. These two scenarios describe many parricides. However, major mental disorders among youthful parricidal offenders, conduct disorder and antisocial personality disorder as well as other psychiatric comorbidities also occur in a significant proportion of parricides. Youthful and adult offenders experience different legal outcomes and receive mental health services in differing contexts. We review offender and victim characteristics, as well as legal and treatment issues, and outline needs for future research.

    Re: Ohio teen convicted of killing mom over video game

    I kinda agree with Bkhad. I don't share his extremist views, but I do find lots of these interactive violent games a little too violent and real. This kid is 17, I don't know how old he was when it happened, it didn't say, but Halo 3 is most likely an MA game for mature adults- which a 17 year old is not. I just think we have created a violent society where violence is celebrated and we are just reaping those seeds with these things happening almost daily and most people acting like that type of thing is normal. You can't show a nipple on tv without people having heart attacks but violent murders don't blink an eye, what's up with that?

    I agree with you there. Sex is taboo, but violence is okay. That's a whole separate issue though. If parents don't want their kids to play such video games they shouldn't buy them or allow their kids to buy them. The rating system is there for a reason. I still don't think that there is something inherent in the video games that will make a kid kill others. It's not video games that are the problem. It's the fact that the violent games are made available to kids by their parents or whatever.

    What extremist view?

    I say the impact of video games on random violence in America needs to be studied.

    That's hardly extreme.

    Care to re-assess your characterization?

    Well I'm not going to take the time to research your posts (unless you deny it) but you have said before a couple of times all video games should be banned for 5 years. You said that, yes?

    It is extreme because you are just focusing it on video games. What about tv or movies? They are just as, if not more violent. It boils down to parental responsibility.

    Halo 3 came out last year I think.

    No. You, on the other hand, are free to do so.
