Yadda yadda he played the "violent video game" WoW 7 hours a day for several months before his attack and was known as Conservatism and Andersnordic or something.

What a fucking casual.

Let The Witch Hunt Begin!

Also, I find it kinda funny that he said it had nothing to do with it, but the media still felt the need to make a big deal out of it.

The media is always stupid. WoW is not an FPS. I don't think they will outlaw it, since so many people play it, and HELLO ? Private servers ? Torrents ? Download the game, make a private server, get your friends on there. Problem solved.

He was already in jail when Skyrim was released, wasn't he? I'm sure he would have loved that game.

I think this a more of a american-australian thing than europe, censorship because of violent videogame, but i know there are also some of those here, so i'm probably wrong.

Didn't he admit himself "playing WoW all day" was a cover-up for planning his murder? As in, not actual admission, I heard he pretty much said "if you want to plan your mass murder very well, pretend you're playing video games - you would remain shut in your room for both". If after that anyone wanted to use him as a reason for repercussions against the game... that'd be pretty sick.

I love how they immediatly point out that Breivik was a "right winger". Fucking media...

Also, if Norway outlawed WoW over this, they would be going extremely overboard with their nanny-statism.

It's a country that's spawned some of the best death metal on earth, I don't think they'll be worried about a little teen rated video game as the problem.

How does World of Warcraft prepare you for shooting anyway? Did he stop to try and loot everyone he shot? Did he state that he was trying to do it to level up? Was it to protest the low drop rates of quest items off of teenagers in Norway questing?

I heard breathing is a common thing shared between killers.

Anyway, I feel like I've read about the insane guy playing WoW already in SoL awhile ago.

What have you done Metzen ? Now I hope you realize why Cataclysm was a bad expansion.

Uhm... Because he was? And that was his main motivation?

You do realize he went to a left-wing youth camp to kill loads of children and teenagers, yes?

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.
