Video Games get the blame again...

That's right, VG's are blamed again as some of the classmates of the gunman in the horrible Newtown school massacre recall a silent teen who enjoyed computers and 'violent' video games.

As expected, Video Games are getting the blame again in the case of the horrible Newtown school shooting, which happened a few days ago.

Now, according to High school classmates of gunman Adam Lanza, he was an awkward kid who wore the same clothes to school every day, liked computers and other gadgets, and seemed to enjoy playing a 'violent video game' (related to Counter-Strike), choosing a military-style assault rifle as one of his weapons...

In high school, Lanza would walk through the hallways, awkwardly pressing himself against the wall while wearing the same green shirt and khaki pants every day. He hardly ever talked to his classmates.

"As long as I knew him, he never really spoke," said Daniel Frost, who took a computer class with Lanza and remembered his skill with electronics. Lanza could take apart and reassemble a computer in a matter of minutes

Lanza seemed to spend most of his time in the basement of the home he shared with his mother, who kept a collection of guns there, said Russell Ford, a friend of Nancy Lanza's who had done chimney and pipe work on the house.

Nancy Lanza was often seen around town and regularly met friends at a local restaurant. But her 20-year-old son was seldom spotted around town, Ford and other townspeople said.

The basement of the Lanza home had a computer, flat-screen TV, couches and an elaborate setup for video games. Nancy Lanza kept her guns in what appeared to be a secure case in another part of the basement, said Ford, who often met her and other friends at a regular Tuesday gathering at My Place, a local restaurant.

[...]

Back in high school, Frost recalled, someone brought in a video game called "Counter-Strike," a shooting video game in which players compete against each other as either terrorists or counter-terrorists.

Lanza "seemed pretty interested in the game," Frost said, and would play it with other students. He remembers the weapons Lanza chose: an M4 military-style assault rifle and a Glock handgun.

Authorities said Lanza used a military-style assault rifle and carried handguns during the rampage at the school. They still have no clear reason why Lanza would lash out at defenceless first-graders and their caretakers.

There you have it. As you may know, even the NRA blamed video games, music and videos for exposing children to violence. And, it looks like the same pattern will continue for the following days/weeks.

What do you think?
