Forums - General Discussion - Does The Boston Suspects Remind You of Niko and Roman Bellic of GTA 4?

Isn't it ironic that the two Boston guys are Russian, and GTA 4 guys are Russian?  Do you think the Boston Suspects were inspired by the GTA games?

I thought they were from Yugoslavia....

Edit: Yep present day Serbia according to GTAWiki.

They arent Russian...also no, using video games is nothing but a scapegoat.

There could be a million things that could of inspired them but in the end its still the same - they were sick individuals for doing what they did.

GTA4 guy is Serbian/Bosnian not Russian. And suspects are not Russian but Chechen.

Other than those 2 glorious mistakes, carry on...



I wonder if video games will get blamed for this incident too.

Oh no doubt they will.

I have been seing this saying going around on facebook:  There is a bombing and we blame the bomber, there is a shooting and we blame guns.  

It is true though that that is what many in the US do.

Unlikely. One was found to be a........wait for it.....a muslim.

Ergo, video games will take 0% of the blame.

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

Except from Congress...which I will eventually post a topic in a few days/weeks from now from GameSpot l0l.



Call of Duty teaches people how to plant bombs, but it clearly doesn't do a good enough job at teaching them how to diffuse them.

Sometimes when there is a bombing we blame guns, too.
