kingcars is an unknown quantity at this point
Even if this email is fake, I figured I'd post some replies to the certain parts of the message.

Murder simulator, eh? I would call GTA many things, but simulator is NOWHERE on that list.

Does this mean anyone who plays GTA is on death row? Hmm, guess all of my friends and I (along with the people on this forum) never got that memo.

Dead because of GTA? Hmmm...well if these 'kids' did play GTA, who allowed it in the house in the first place? The parents? Oh, silly me, that's right, Take 2 did it. They just strolled up to their homes and put them at gunpoint until they "trained" themselves on it.

Jack Thompson should be arrested simply for talkin down on Ted Bundy. I also never realized Ted Bundy had anything to do with shooting cops and pedestrians...

Dang, Jack, that's a great point you bring up there. I only have one quesion: Where do they get the credit card info so they can actually pay for the game?

Yep, and it's all Take 2's fault. Not the TV channel's fault, nor the wrestling federation's fault. 100% Take 2. Oh, and I'm glad to see you're not a hypocritical asshole....oh wait.

I'm sure the teenaged boy just walked up the street holding out a rocket launcher, instantly switched to an AK47, hit the L1 button for auto aim, then clicked R1 to shoot.
