MW3 Blamed for Norway Massacre?
 
Here we go again... :confused:

Experts in the video suggest Breivik was 'influenced' by his video game habit.

yep, playing too much CloD will have you stealing a vintage Spitfire and shooting up commercial passenger jets.

oh wait ... modern commercial passenger jets are faster than a Spitfire ...

Influenced?/
The article says he used FPS's to develop and sharpen his aiming... a training tool

i thought it was helping his target acquisition skills, not aiming.

Either way, the twit should be sent to bloody Svalbard to partake in a feeding-program for the Polarbears....

I just dont see what in Call of Duty can be applied to real life shooting... Maybe what end of the gun to point at the target or something...
Its like he said he improved his fighting skill by playing those UFC games.
On the other hand I think games like ARMA could be used for navigation and squad organization training (as they are already doing with VBS).

The only combat-skills you can pull out of MW/COD are pretty much target assessment and acquisition. And then only in a rudimentary way. There's very little about the games that have any real-world implications, and besides, remember that this lunatic attacked and killed unarmed kids/young adults at a summer-camp. There were none on Utøya that was a threat in any way, shape or form.

Breivik is using the games as a means of justification for his actions in an attempt to rationalize his insanity. Nothing more and nothing less.

Hah. Isn't it like saying you can learn sword fighting by playing Skyrim.
