Judge Sentences Convicted Gamer to Death
7:25 AM | Blake Buck | 17 comments

Gamespot recently posted an article stating that a verdict as been reached in an ongoing legal battle over video game violence. The Devin Moore trial has been quite possibly the largest trial involving video game violence.

Back in 2003, the defendant Devin Moore was arrested for stealing a car, and while in police custody, grabbed and officer's gun and shot three police officers. Afterwards, Moore claimed that his deeds were inspired by the video game Grand Theft Auto III.

After the jury reached a verdict in August, last Friday the judge layed down the maximum penalty of lethal injection. From the Gamespot article:

Moore will be put to death by lethal injection. Defense attorney Jim Standridge will appeal the case. The victims' families have sued Take-Two Interactive (parent company of Rockstar), Sony, Wal-Mart, and GameStop for their parts in the manufacturing and selling of the game.
As video game violence has now come into the spotlight of mainstream media, the effects of cases such as this could have an impact on video games as a whole, even Mac games.
