Video games were one of the first things blamed for the recent shootings at Virginia Tech. Dr. Phil and a certain Floridiot lawyer
were two of the loudest voices, while an article in the online version of the Washing Post briefly mentioned
Cho was a Counter-Strike
player in high school. Not a big deal in our eyes, but to the general public if Cho even looked
at a video game, it's case-closed.
After police searched Cho's dorm room, however, it seems he didn't own any video games at all. No murder simulators
or gun training programs
, not even a copy of Tetris
. If video games didn't teach him these skills
, where did they come from?! Oh noes!
We've posted our feelings about violent video games
. Hopefully this lack of evidence will silence the anti-gaming pundits for a while.
