This happened:

March 2014

"14-year-old Eldon Samuel III is facing two counts of first-degree murder for killing his father and 13-year-old brother Monday evening in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Eldon lived with his 46-year-old father, Eldon Samuel Jr., and his 13-year-old brother, Jonathan, who has Down's Syndrome, in a family shelter owned by Saint Vincent de Paul of North Idaho."

 

"When police arrived at the scene, Eldon was covered in blood, but remained calm and emotionless. Eldon told police that he idolizes Trevor, from Grand Theft Auto V, saying Trevor has anger issues and likes to shoot people, and that's 'kinda cool'. Eldon later confessed that he had been plotting the murder of his father and brother for 8 months."

 

Can't their parents read " RATED 17 or 18*

 

I mean wtf is going on the gaming community???

 

Don't their own parents know that this includes sexual content nudity, and violence???

 

I hear a squeaker once, these kids need to GTFO.

 

Their age is between: Age 6 to 14

 

What kind of parents let a kid play GTA Online which involves sexual content shown only for 18?

 

What kind of damn society is this?

 

People need to stop blaming video games, BLAME the parents who bought em for the first place.

 

Children young as-SIX-exposed-video-games-scenes-involving-violence-prostitution-parents-ignore-age-limits:

 

-Survey reveals 50% of parents allow their children to play 18 rated games

-Adults admit their children play GTA and Call of Duty for up to 6 hours a day

-Schoolboy, six, asked child protection expert: 'What is a brothel?'

-Counselors say addiction to gaming can be as strong as a drug addiction

 

From this Article LINKED:

http://www.dailymail...age-limits.html

 

Do anyone think the video game industry is in trouble from the FCC?

My son plays @ 11... generally with me or in invite sessions but he does free roam at times. I was bought up "liberally". If I wanted to know something I only had to ask my parents & I would get an honest & straight to the point answer... no beating around the bush... no "fluffing it up". My son probably knows a little too much compared to my generation, but he still says "oh yuk" when the sex stuff happens & the drug references has probably made him dislike them more (can thank SP mode for that...).

Welcome to America.

It's not exclusively Americans. I've heard South Americans, Mexicans, English, Irish, Scottish and a couple Germanic countries too. It's called poor parenting. A lot of parents just throw a video game at their kid and let it babysit their kid instead of proper interaction with their child.

It's cheaper than the parents having to pay for a baby sitter constantly every single day or week, whatever the case may be. The game acts as the 'baby sitter.' It's just BS when you have the parent's child later have an incident where he killed grandma, because an actual case related to GTA IV I believe did happen, and than the parents lay blame on the video game, on the media, and anything else in between. They never once consider that maybe their bad parenting had any relation in the incident, It's always someone else's fault because they don't want to think or come to the actual terms of that they failed as a parent from protecting their child.

When I see people blaming a video game, a song or a movie for a crime they have committed, first thing that comes to mind is bullsh*t...! They're looking for a scape goat but the "small minded" among us lap it up & want the video game, song or movie banned.

If parents want to babysit their children with video games, they should be buying kids games, not this game.

Because it's fun, the same reason adults play it. I don't think there's anything wrong with kids playing 18+ games, the first game I ever played was Vice City at the age of 8 and I enjoyed it just as I would enjoy a movie or an album, I don't think it had any negative effects lol. Though I do think if kids are playing online they should be banned from using mics until their voice doesn't sound so annoying.

Excuse me young man, but this is an adults only forum. I'm afraid I'll need to see some ID or I'm calling your mommy and daddy, sport.

Well it's not only gamestop allowing children to buy this game with parent approval. You can buy these games a lot cheaper and no questions asked once you click check out on Amazon.
The gaming community has been ruined by little kids off of M games. I remember when i was their age I wanted an M game so bad but I did not buy my own until I was 15 with my own money.
It's also sad to hear how these kid's call themselves rich when their mom probably bought all their stuff.
I was playing with a kid yesterday and he was swearing, calling me a c*nt, ni**er, and other hateful speech, and sure as sh*t when he spit out the word fa**ot. His mom screamed his name like you wouldn't believe and came over and unplugged his ps3 while crying over the microphone.

A 14 year old boy killed his own father and then blames GTA V.

 

WHAT THE F**K!!!!

People need to understand that, when things like this happen, the game is not to blame.

 

That kid was effed up in the head since birth most likely. Any sane person would never do a thing like this! I watched and played violent games when growing up, and I thought it was cool.

Did I ever think to myself  "god, murder is cool!"? NO WAY.

 

This is literally not the games fault. This is the work of a fricked up brain, poor parenting, and who knows how many other factors.

 

Seriously, it's these news items that try and spark the debate that "videogames make kids violent", when in reality these stupid people just want to find an easy thing to blame these problems on.

 

That kid looks evil in the head just looking at him.

P.S. did anyone else spot the irony when they saw this thread?

That kid from the news report was gonna do something like that regardless of whether he played GTA, you can't blame a game played by millions of people for a few of the people playing it being not right in the head.

WTH? See this is why kids don't need to be playing a game like GTA. They can't grasp reality.

It's not about the videogame (I used to chop heads on Vice City when I was 11), it's about the lack of attention. Seriously, eight months planning a murder and the father never had a clue? Come on... videogames don't make children stupid, they're easy to influence, I don't see the kid escaping from the police like Trevor would do.
