All of these blame games on video games piss me off. Most of the blaming is done by middle aged and older adults who have never even held a controller in their life.
Sydian nailed it, people are the problem.
It's easier for news media to blame something blatantly violent like video games as opposed to going on the air and saying, 'Humanity sucks and are greedy, naturally violent, selfish pigs. Cut to commercial.' Plus it gives them tons of ratings, which is really what it's all about.
