Gamer sentenced to deathMikey 3 comments
Twenty six year old convicted killer for murdering a 10 year old girl two years ago.
Underwood's case is special in that in 2006, legislatures described the crime as an example of the negative effects of violent video games. What was the game that allegedly drove Underwood to become a murderer? GTA? Postal? None of the usual suspects, it was actually Kingdom of Loathing, a web browser based game where all the characters are drawn as stick figures. It's as unrealistic as it gets.
Underwood's attorney says he suffered from many mental illnesses and was overcome by sexual deviant urges.
"Mr. Underwood suffers from several severe psychiatric disorders....Is there any question that Kevin Ray Underwood was a sick and disturbed young man when he committed this homicide?"
Oh yeah, it was clearly the game's fault.
