'Training simulation:' Mass killers often share obsession with violent video games | Jamie Golubinski | Scoop.it

Jamie Golubinski's insight:

In the article they state that the killers often play violent video games too much and eventually get confused between the real world and the fantasy world that they see in the video games. One kid said in the article that he shot a guy and thought that he wouldnt die because in Call of Duty you have to shoot the guys at least 7 times before they sctually die.
