This will inevitably be totally misunderstood by some anti-gaming twat and be used to try and say that computer games are making us all killing machines and stuff.

Well, you have to face the truth: someone died because of a video game.

yes, but as with all of these incidents, the person must have some amount of mental instability, to even think of murdering someone, let alone murder someone because they sold an imaginary sword...

it pisses me off, all theses people that scapegoat computer games, for mankinds failings and peoples instabilities.

take rockstar for example, almost every day there is some articles blaiming rockstar and grand theft auto/manhunt for a shooting, murder, violence, children dropping out of school....

No, I wasn't raised in an Asian culture either. Life's worth has a different definition over there. I'm not saying it's right, but people have been killed for a lot less.

Computer games are extremely big in South Korea. They have TV-channels showing the big WC3 games between some of the bigger clans. And it's not only gaming, it's business. They make a living out of it. So naturally their should be some sort of control.
