Originally posted by Everwatcher33My first reaction is why is he playing that long, I neve had time restrictions but I had self control...why doesn't he have any? Where are the parents? Maybe they should have a talk with him...or raise him better. People use video games as an excuse to push violent behavior off onto something else...but really if a kid will go off on a game what happens when he gets really pissed at someome?

Mhm, you don't have to believe me but it's true, keep in mind that he's playing Multi-player were he's in contact with other people, and trust me sometimes they can really piss you off, I get called the N word quite often while playing and sometimes it just just gets to me and I lose it. I see the guy in the video doing the same but for another reason.

And thats whats scary!!
Noone died, lost a member or a home, just a game.
So what messages are we sending to these kids? Thats it ok?
I'll be damned if my kid breaks her electronics because she couldnt pass the game and control her anger. I would see that as a huge problem. Im trying to raise my kid to know right from wrong, truth from lies, etc, to be HUMAN.

Amen... I'm a pretty hardcore gamer myself and I did my share of amphetamine/methamphetamine until two years ago when I stop that #... and EVEN back then on speeds I couldn't play 17 hours straight... Even when wired to second level... I wouldn't of been able to sit there 17 hours straight... This kid needs professional help, pretty quick too....
