China Blames Online Games For Murder And Teen Pregnancy

If China's state news channel is to be believed, then online games are responsible for drugs, murder and teen pregnancy as well.

In part 2 of "Confession of a Murderer - Focus on Pornography and Violence in Online Games", China Central Television (CCTV) reported that a Chinese man is serving life sentence for committing five murders in order to obtain virtual items for an online game.

The Chinese channel then claimed that 80% of the violent prison inmates have turned to crime because of online games.

Another example cited by the program is a 14 years old girl who were influenced by online dancing game, "Audition", to start having one night stands with strangers and ended up having two abortions.

Yes yes, games cause murder, pregnancy, they eat little babies(but only the cute ones), they kill baby seals, burn down rain forests, blow up polar bears(because they look cute and cuddly), they rape your grandmother, are the main cause of global warming, and what else... oh yeah terrorism, they are responsible for all acts of terrorism! And they killed Kenny, those bastards!Those old farts(who dont grasp the idea of games) have been going on about this for years, I don't consider it "breaking news" when China joins in.

The Chinese do have a point. Online games clearly play an influential role in value formation and behavior traits. Columbine is just one example. It's not all that dis-similar from Television. For those of you who disagree, I'm not saying online games are responsible for these specific incidents in China, only that may have contributed.

All there saying is that through online games there is a small percentage of people filling two rolls! 1 are people that youse it to influence other players who are abit simple or unbalanced into doing things for online rewards and those people who they are influenceing and then run off and kill or have sex and so fourth! The reso of us are alright and I think you cant blame everything on the games.

fu*k the chinese, I don't believe a word from these twang fu*ks.I've always said that you could, 'almost' always tell people personality by the look on their face... it almost always tell of the character they are inside i.e retarded killing mutherf**ka!It is as though God intended for people like myself and others to be able to detect these people from the way they look and act!You try and you will see, some things happen for a reason and i believe that there is an overall guardian watching over the universe the creator if you will.Like my fellow black people, we poses massive strength and body to be slaved off, don't you see? I have been threatened by my own people for such views, but it's true! otherwise most of us are wasting our life in prisons in all western countries!and remember jesus and God loves us!John.

I thought I would see mindless western posts, you do not live there, and have no idea the circ*mstances that south east gamers face on a daily basis. As I remember correctly 99% of Gold Farming, Power Leveling, Items Selling, ect is a south east asia job. I don't see any westies going into business for themselves.I feel sorry for what plagues them there. You all need to go f yourselves first and think in their prospective and not the dumb american one.

I'm also amazed well, not really cause most of you are frankly idiots, Seeing all this hate towards a country that makes your living easier and cheep because it exports several forms of ware for its consumers. Don't b***h about their government, your own isn't that great either so don't start barking like rednecks from south park. That religious nut over there, I think you need more help than anyone in china I'm sorry.

I'm just a (simple Canadian) but how the hell can people blame a dance game for a girl going out and slutin around, maby there are some people out there that cant distinguish there game life for real life for games like "call of duty", but they are the same people that would take anything they see in a movie as real too. So what are they gonna do start removing everything that any kind of suggestive content, just as well and shut down the whole entertainment business then.

Person below = Ghetto try hard... Why don't you talk like a normal person instead of some no hope in life street loser...Anyway back on topic, This type of thing can happen anywhere, not only China... As the person below said "Columbine"... So people who say that the Chinese are retarded "ie Majority being Americans" You might want to look at your own country too... Also, a more recent news item that a 9yr old boy was stabbed to death by a friend of playing Tony Hawk Ride in USA...
