In September, 16 year old Daniel Petric sneaked out of his house to buy Halo 3. Shortly after buying the game in secret, his parents found it and took it away, thinking the game was too violoent. A month after that, Daniel shot both of his parents for taking the game away, and even tried to frame his father for the crime.
The boy was finally convicted of the crime earlier today, but Judge James Burge wasn't happy with the sentencing. He told the press that he blamed the video game developers more than Daniel for the crime committed. Burge accused Halo 3 developer Bungie of creating a “delusional environment” where the normal rules of reality didn’t apply. "[In Halo 3] you can shoot these aliens, and they’re there again the next day. You have to shoot them again, and I firmly believe that Daniel Petric had no idea, at the time he hatched this plot, that if he killed his parents they would be dead forever,” Burge explained.
