Russian Breivik Case May Lead To War Games Ban
Manhunt: the game that entices murder

Earlier this week a Russian lawyer from Moscow took revenge on his former colleagues. All people, aged between early 20s and 33 y.o., all worked together at the pharmacy warehouse. The criminal claims his colleagues persuaded his girlfriend to break off with him so he studied shooting for half a year before going on a revenge spree. Out of 7 people who were at the warehouse on the fateful morning, 5 were instantly killed, with two more being taken to hospital with serious wounds where one later died. 

      It became known that the criminal spent a lot of time playing computer games, particularly Manhunt. He also uploaded a "Killer's Manifesto" on to his profile in, which led to the media comparing him to Breivik. 

      However, the largest repercussion may be a proposition at the State Duma where the deputies instantly reacted with a suggestion to ban computer games that promote violence. These games were described as being extremely realistic and potentially detrimental to people's mental health. Although described as adult games, they can be downloaded online by underaged users whom these games may impact most profoundly. 

      "If we fight against paedophilia, we must also fight against these "shooting" games", one deputy is quoted saying.
