"Confessed right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik has told police that he was “addicted to computer games,” spending thousands of hours online before he bombed Norway’s government headquarters and gunned down Labour Party summer campers. Newspaper Aftenposten reported that coppers have found logs indicating that Breivik spent even more time on computer games than he’d admitted. He told coppers that he spent around 8,700 hours playing the games between 2006 and 2010. Police found that between November 2010 and April 2011, Breivik spent 500 hours playing “World of Warcraft” alone."




I highly doubt people that play games too much can turn into psychopaths. He definitely had pre-existing mental conditions and needed some help. It's kind of a shame knowing that if he may have been more social in a positive environment, who knows, things could've wound up differently. At least it was World of Warcraft and nothing something even more rage-inducing like a MOBA game though.

Yea, right. Total bullshit :/ This person had a metal issue long before he took up gaming. Although, he could have filled his mind with a more non-violent activity, maybe knitting.
