Violence Associated with Video Games
There has been a few real-life incidents of violence associated with videogames. Two incidents that happened from the same video game franchise. Grand Theft Auto, an action-adventure game where you can steal cars, rob banks, and kill people, without even getting caught. It shows how the characters plan their robberies step by step. "On June 7, 2003, eighteen-year-old Devin Moore was arrested while attempting to steal a car in Alabama. Later, while in police custody, he went on a shooting rampage and stole a squad car. Three people were killed in the melee. It was later revealed that Moore spent a considerable amount of time playing Grand Theft Auto and may have based his actions on a similar scenario in the game." Stealing cars in Grand Theft Auto happens often when you just want a quick get-away after robbing a bank or just stealing it for fun.
"On June of 2008 six teenage boys were arrested after taking part in at least two separate armed robberies. The group of twelve- to fifteen-year-olds used crowbars and other crude instruments in the robberies of victims on Long Island." In Grand Theft Auto, you can play online with friends robbing banks. It demonstrates the players needing to work together to get the big prize, the money or getting better at stealing. However, there is a solution.
