Strange Random Video Game Quote:

I think that if someone plays a video game, and then goes out and harms another human being, or themselves because of what they just saw in the video game, they were screwed up in the head long before they got their hands on a controller. – TIM BUCKLEY, GameCore interview, Mar. 4, 2005
