Are we sure he actually killed the other person in real life? They said 'a player killed another player', it's possible he could've just killed him in the game, and the death sentence is in the game...(yeah, dumb theory.)

But, yeah, some of the chinese people are very violent, like I've seen videos of 'nerds' in china getting beat down by the majority of their class just for being a nerd, and the teachers don't seem to do anything about it...

...stuff like that could lead to these 'nerds' becoming very violent/disturbed people and I wouldn't find it unreasonable if the gamer who killed the other was one of these kids who gets beaten up at school, or maybe it's one of the people that does the beating, they get so aggresive.

Not saying everyone in China is violent, but in these cases, the people were very violent.

I dunno, I was jumped and violently beaten all throughout my gradeschool career, teachers did nothing, eventually I started fighting back because I realized it detoured atleast half of the group. I don't know exactly but I think I turned out just fine, I haven't tried to kill anyone nor do I ever get the urge.

But come to think of it, just like squidge37, this really is necessary, atleast in Asia. For example when japanese become fond of something, then they come really obsessed with it. This one guy (he was Korean, but anyway) played starcraft for 50 hours (if I remember correctly) straight, almost without eating and drinking until he collapsed on the netcafe floor, dead. This system would have saved his life.

Here's few links if you´re interested

Two died playing diablo 2:

Dad played everquest, child dies:

Both parents played everquest, daughter dies:
http://www.cadenhead.org/workbench/n...lays-everquest

I think I made myself clear. Over and out.
Seriously.. thats too many deaths being blamed on games, we definately have to find a way to take away the stress of gaming or something....

I saw this one article about a group of boys going out with automatics and semi automatics, stealing a car, and driving around killing people... Grand Theft Auto was blamed. Actually they made a tv special about it... commercialism bah. Crazy people are crazy, you can't go around blaming a game for their actions, it just justifies what they did.

nah, you want a bad gaming experience then you wanna look at lineage in korea... korean gangsters loved the game too... and when they got killed in-game they would find where the player who killed them accesses the game from and takes them out of the LAN center and beats them... sometimes to death...

there have been dozens of documented cases of asasult set off by pvp in the game... and about a dozen cases where the victim was killed... and thats from lineage, im not even getting into the other MMO and gaming fatalities...

i mean, when people commit suicide because of a game its not the fault of the game, its the gamer for making himself so dependant on that reality...

the stuff about GTA killings... thats just ridiculous... the people that commit those crimes were going to commit those crimes regardless of whether they did it in GTA style, tenchu style, or matrix style... they lacked the intelligence to come up with their own crime so they took someone else's

games are at fault in something like 5% of fatalities surrounding games... the rest are just mentally unstable players

I didn't say that it was for sure the reason, I just said it COULD lead to them being unstable people. Getting beat down on a regular basis can have different effects on different people. Just because you didn't turn out messed up doesn't mean it can't happen to others.

This puts T:LaW at risk, one this is a very realistic game, two open PVP.. now i would like to make it clear that, getting a Katana is a lot easier then getting a gun. To say the least, if we get unstable players.. well that could turn out pretty bad. Like glow was saying games dont make people do things, they do them of there own free will and just arnt creative. Thats one of the reasons i dont like to engage in PVP if i can help it.
