violent video game "Grand Theft Auto V"
Eldon had also admitted that he had planned the family's murder for 8 months.
The father was killed by three shots, once in the face, once in the head, and once in the gut. Eldon's little brother was wounded by being shot 4 times and stabbed with a large knife. Then, Eldon killed the brother by striking him with a machete 30 times. Grandparents later on confessed that
Eldon had a symptom that siginfied declining mental health: He tortured animals for fun.
After being interviewed by the police, Elton claimed that he sort of regretted his dad's death, but
was happy about his brother's death.
Eldon also told the judges that his father often beat him up. Unless they can prove that his father really did beat him up ofter, Eldon Samuel III will be sentenced the jail.
These games are intended for young children.
This can be played by everyone of all ages.
Games with these ratings may contain mild violence and language.
A violent video gamer may have little empathy and will see no reason to not harm others. They lose a sense of what is right and what is wrong.

Making avatars can decrease someone's self-esteem.
