These things happen, its because he plays games that it is ironicly on a media based website. If I shot myself dead right now it might just get in the local paper.

He's not saying that WoW caused it persay, just that it's been identified as a possible cause.

Which the media has blown out of scale into "Oh ma gawd he was playing WoW on super duper levels of pills and coco pops! He become a five legged monster and has lasers in his eyes but then he found out WoW was super evil and killed himself to avoid humanity from blowing up into tiny pieces!" Yes...
Again I'm glad that I have never even touched world of warcraft. That guy is responsible for his own actions, not WoW. I don't see why people are so addicted to it.

Same, i would choose an offline epic RPG (such as oblivion) over some shitty MMORPG any day...
How many times has this happened now? People killing themselves over WoW or at least it getting blamed in one way or another, sadly isn't much of a shocker anymore. When i see these, my first thoughts are "again?"
People should think before they act, this is an example. The game must be very addictive.

All I can think of, is even if the guy had no life persay some one would have noticed a change in him and could have helped him...
