By the sounds of that article he doesnt even have the game yet.. How could the game even be blamed.. If anything they should ban being poor enough to have to rob taxi drivers to buy video games.

Fuck that aye.
This is why GTA has a bad name in some communities, I bet that boy has some sort of mental disability that is also 'withheld'.

They have to blame the fucking game for it, sucks to be in Thailand if you're a GTA fan then. It's the person that does it not the game.

Isn't Thailand like Pirate capital of the world anyway? Anyone in Thailand who hasn't got it can just get it like normal anyway from their markets upon markets and street corners.

I think the law stops him for doing anything for 10 years.
So we gotta increase that countdown another 315,569,260 seconds.
But yeah, the world isn't going to get any better if people keep trying to blame unrelated things for their problems. Video Games AND mental disabilities aside, the kid still did something that he knows damn well was against the law, and he is more accountable than an interactive work of fiction will EVER be.

If I was the president of a country and I made all the decision then my first one would be to have a no excuses law that when you do kill somebody, you can't blame movies or video games or music for your actions, you choose to kill a person, forms of entertainment don't make people decide to kill someone, their brain do.
That Thai kid made his decision to kill the taxi driver and he knew it was illegal but he did it anyway and because he said GTA IV made him do it, all the people in Thailand will miss out now all because of what one person did.
