Actually, it sounds like he was playing in an arcade (he parents didn't have the money to give him so he could play).

Oh, and I don't play the game at all.

I dont know about you but when I play the game the taxi drivers are my friends. I pay them a small fee and they take me where I want to go like that. Instead of my driving myself to the missions. LOL. I have to agree though. First of all the game is rated M. So that kid should not have been able to buy it. If his parents bought it and did not know he was that stupid enough that he would test that theory out well shame on them. He should go to jail for what he did. He killed someone. I hope the put him away for a long time. I think people just want to jump the gun and be the first one to say see it happeend to a taxi driver. Next thing it will happen to bar owners, prostitutes, police, just someone walking the streets. That happens everyday people. To blame a video game for that is just plan dumb. I have played games all my lfie and that is the furthest thing in my mind to do.

Yeah, it is dumb of the kid...but what about the ending comment (that I commented on below)...I shared it with my Hubby and he said that it would have made a LOT more sense if it had been said "This time-bomb has already exploded and the situation could get worse. Today it is a cab driver, but tomorrow it could be a..." POLICE OFFICER instead of "...video game shop owner."

Seriously, I can believe the kid was that stupid, and do think he should be punished for such a thing, but at the same time an adult is saying that the worst thing that could happen if for them to start going after the video game shop owners?

I heard about this story. I think it is reallys stupid assumption to make about video games and reality. If the games were meant to mimick reality then you would get caught every single time. Its like running red lights with the police at the light. In a normal senerio you would have wailing sirens in the back ground and you would get ticketed for running the light. It would make for a boring game getting busted each time for minor infractions. Why did he not try to hit a police officer and try to run away. I call this person and EPIC FAIL!!!

Ladda Thangsupachai, director of the ministry's Cultural Surveillance Centre, said: "This time-bomb has already exploded and the situation could get worse. Today it is a cab driver, but tomorrow it could be a video game shop owner."
------------------

So, a taxi cab driver's not that important?!? What the heck? I don't get that statement at all!!

The whole thing is crazy, but that just tops the cake!
