Jury convicts video game (GTA) defense killer

'The videogame made me do it.' Thank god juries don't buy such nonsense.

Defense lawyers had partly blamed Moore's actions on the hours he spent playing video games from the 'Grand Theft Auto' series, in which players shoot police officers and steal cars.

Moore had pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental defect. - Jury convicts video game defense killer - Aug 10, 2005
