Russia May Get New Rules for Video Games

Manhunt is Considered Possible Rampage Reason

It has happened several times in the past that video games were held responsible for rampages (both by media and the perpetrators). Now, Russia has the newest case. Last week, Dmitry Vinogradov went postal at his working place and killed six colleagues. Allegedly, a broken relationship with a female work colleague was the reason. But then, it was found out that the man played the infamous video game Manhunt.

The Russian delegate Sergei Zheleznyak already said that the Russian control agency for mass media and communication should be contacted in order to evoke a ban for the game. His colleague Franz Klintsevich added that the availability of violent video games should be regulated in a stricter way. Duma-member Vladimir Burmatov said that there should be a commission that controls the sales of video games.

It remains to be seen if any of these consequences will come into effect in Russia. The politicians obviously favor different measures so it will be interesting to see what's just an immediate reaction or what has more substance to it.
