It looks like I've been playing GTA 4 wrong and that the media is right as always...

"SHOW ME YOUR MO-FO AMERICAN KIDS, ELDERLY AND WOMEN ROMAN... I WANT TO GET ME SOME POINTS!!!!"
I'm sure a lot of you heard of the chap from Rio who went into an old school of his and shot up the place killing 13 people and injuring a dozen more. Like with many shooting and terrorist acts, Video games have been blamed. Games like Doom, GTA and more recently Call of Duty, have been training villans with their over use of violence. Just like American media giant FOX said Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with the level "No Russian" where you kill civilians mercilessly, is training terrorists and was blamed for the suicide bombing in a Russian airport about 4 months ago. I enjoyed this level. Not because of the killing of civilians, which I know is a really touchy subject among people, but the fact that it was different. It made it more real. Soldiers don't run around using BB guns to shoot people, although the media would probably try and pull that off the shelves for being excessively violent.
This is adding Brazils head newspaper, "O Globo", to my list of "Media Giant Gobshites" along with Sky News UK - "THERE'S A CEASEFIRE IN LIBYA" FUKUSHIMA (PRONOUNCED BY NEWS ANCHOR FUCKUSH-I-MA) IS IN MAJOR MELTDOWN)
FOX News for the earlier MW2 scandal.

Apparently, Wellington Menezes de Oliveira, the guy responsible for the shooting was a fan of GTA IV and what did "O Globo" say? They said it's a very violent game that REWARDS you POINTS for killing women and CHILDREN and the elderly. Call me an idiot but in my playthrough of GTA IV, I didn't see a child and never saw points when I killed women. Maybe my game is deffective. Silly old Brazilians... Know before you post...

Really? Kids in GTA IV? I didn't see a single kid in GTA IV. Unless my game is defected or I'm blind. Points for shooting women? I punched a woman by accident in that game and what I got was a 2 star wanted level, no points. They need to get their facts straight on the gameplay of GTA IV.

Its just the media trying to scare people into believing everything they're told.I went through an airport recently with a machine gun and didn't kill one person.
