"The perpetrator, Tim Kretschmer, reportedly played games like Counter-Strike and Far Cry 2."
I expect he also played Need for speed and Race driver grid.Perhaps even Tetris.So i suppose they think we should ban them as well,just in case.
I love survival horror games like Resi evil and first person shooters and have never had so much as a fight.
Video games do not turn you into a murderer,there are lots of other factors involved such as your upbringing and your mental health.

Idiots, banning any violent games will just mean gamers will download the games illegally from torrents.

It won't happen. The link says it's been tried before and failed. It's just cheap publicity that doesn't get to the real issues. Typical of politicians!
