Blame It On "Need For Speed"

http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/Con...l=968793972154

I never liked how video games are blamed for the actions of others. In this situation finding a copy of the popular racing game "Need For Speed" in the car pretty much makes this a case closed. I hope this excellent game won't be banned or taken off shelves because of two morons. It's pretty sad when you can't discern a video game from reality and someone has to die.

"The driver of the Mercedes involved in the crash suffered only a few scratches. The other driver fled the scene, police said." Amazing how safe these cars are.

Freude am fahren!

RE: Blame It On "Need For Speed"

The reason I bought a CLK was because of DTM Racing.
If we were influenced by video games however, I would be walking the streets of Chicago killing zombies with my RPG or BFG2000.

Up until last week I thought Tron was real.

RE: Blame It On "Need For Speed"

It's the same mentality as saying that SUV's kill people. They are said to hold an "unfair advantage" over drivers with smaller cars.

It was the small drivers with the tiny brains that killed the taxi driver, not a video game.
