CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case Tonight

March 6, 2009 -

If preliminary reports are any indication, video games are in for a media beatdown on Canadian TV network CBC tonight.

News program the fifth estate will air an investigative piece on the tragic Brandon Crisp case at 9 P.M. Eastern. GamePolitics readers may recall that 15-year-old Brandon ran away from home following an October, 2008 dispute in which his parents confiscated his Xbox 360.

Brandon was an avid - his parents say addicted - Call of Duty 4 player and the early days of the investigation focused on the theories that he had either run away to join a professional gaming league or been abducted by someone he met on Xbox Live. In the end it turned out that Brandon had fallen from a tree not long after leaving home and died from injuries received in the fall.

The Globe and Mail previews the program:

Some kids get hooked on Guitar Hero, but the vast majority of gamers today spend more money — and time — on shockingly graphic search-and-destroy video games. Turning every violent teen male fantasy into reality, these games have a simple primal theme: kill, and kill again. And then keep killing...

"As a parent, I was shocked by how little I knew about this world," says [reporter Gillian Findlay]. "The violence of these games is so real and beauty of the graphics is almost overwhelming. You can see how seductive these games can be to teenage players..."

In an exclusive interview with Brandon's parents, taped between the time of his disappearance and the discovery of his body, the extent of their son's video-game obsession is revealed.

We're dismayed at what sounds like a cheap media manipulation:

MLG also operates big-ticket tournaments... Findlay sits down with the members of a Canadian team of professional gamers...

 

"When we talked to them, we had large monitors playing video-game footage as background, and you could see it: They couldn't take their eyes off the screens," says Findlay.

Did the reporter really conduct this interview in front of large monitors and then blame some kind of video game effect for the subjects' eyes wandering? Would it have been any different if a hockey game or House was running on those monitors? Maybe that's why most reporters don't conduct interviews with their subjects facing TV screens. They're, you know, distracting...

For those who don't get CBC, the episode will be available on the web at 10 p.m.

GP: Thanks to numerous readers who alerted us to this story...

UPDATE: Steve Tilley, who covers video games for the Toronto Sun, has previewed the show and weighs in with his take:

There's a journalistic responsibility to become as informed as possible on a subject before speaking on it with authority, and [reporter Gillian] Findlay clearly has not.

I'm not talking about forgivable oversimplifications, but rather a glib, faux-concerned approach that treats teenaged gamers like slack-jawed addicts obsessed with virtual mass murder. It's demeaning not only to the majority of gamers for whom this is harmless recreation, but to the non-gaming viewing audience who might not know better...

It's lazy, cheap and disappointingly one-sided.

Nice find! Thanks millions!

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...


"As a parent, I was shocked by how little I knew about this world..."

Which is exactly the reason you probably shouldn't be covering this topic - how can you not be biased against something you have little knowledge of, apart from rampant sensationalism?

Some of the things that bother me most about this upcoming piece are:

a) Who bought him the game? He clearly couldn't do that on his own. Who likely bought him the Xbox and supplied him with a TV? What frustrates me most is how easily it is for blame to be laid on the faintest of sources (games themselves or worse the evil major gaming league) and not the direct sources, the parents.

b) As has been stated, thousands of teenage kids run away every day because things don't go their way, whether they are grounded, banned from TV or a cell phone. Yes, this story is tragic, but had Brandon returned the next day unharmed, this wouldn't be newsworthy at all. The tragedy had nothing to do specifically with games, just an argument and an unfortunate mishap. Why aren't they doing an article on the evil affects of teenagers talking on cell phones and how many run away when they lose cell phone privelages?

c) I wasn't aware that I'm playing video games because the major league of gaming fuels my desire with the lure of prizes and money. I thought it was something I like to do in my spare time. That's like saying, people watch TV because of the lure of money and prizes on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - or even better that I play hockey recreationally because of the lure of fame and money to be found in the NHL - I thought I just liked playing hockey.

Not only is this a hatchet job, but the arguments it makes are patently illogical from even an outsider's point of view.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Now that I think about it, the temr "investigative report" is misleading. They clearly didn't investigate anything.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

"And they said, when their son played those xbox murder simulator video reality games, little devil horns could be seen coming out of his head, like the xbox game was controlling him, and twisting his morals, and making him into a bad person."

amirite?

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

 I usually expect better from the CBC, but if there's ratings to be had, the sensationalist aspects always seem to get drummed up. 

Shame on you CBC. 

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

"Turning every violent teen male fantasy into reality,"

The game characters on screen are NOT capable of leaping into the real wordl and itneracting with you ,thus fantasy remains fantasy.

 

"these games have a simple primal theme: kill, and kill again. And then keep killing..."

If that was the entire point then the concepts of heatl meters/bars and characters being ableto die would never be a part of the game. FYI, yes, there are health meters/bars and yes the character you play as can die. Also, games do have a story i nthere, the violence is usually a party of the story/survival of the main character.

 

I love these people. Through them the consoles somehow gainn ew tehcnology that doesn't exist yet and parts of the game get added or taken out without the developer's knowing/permission

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Very good points. I also take issue with calling CoD 4 a "search-and-destroy" game. On most, probably all, maps, one can wait for the enemy to come to them.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

This is fucking disgusting bullshit.

 

Saying that the only theme is 'kill, and kill again" is idiotic. Teamwork plays a huge role in these games, as well as strategy. It isn't like you are executing helpless tied up innocent people. You are involved in a simulated war, against enemies that want you dead. There is more to it then 'kill, and kill again'. In fact, in many gametypes, kills don't even matter, and instead you have some sort of objective, like King of the Hill, or Capture the Flag. Being sneaky and using your head is the better path to victory in these modes. Going for kills is pointless.

 

They also stereotype these games as being a 'male fantasy'. Way to generalize a gender, you fucking idiots.

 

It is sad that my home country is getting in on this bullshit. Pisses me off. Almost enough to KILL!!!!

 

jk

 

Edit: The gamers watching the screens just shows that gamers are better able to multitask. They can focus on an interview, and a strategic game. They are able to take in stimulis from multiple sources without becoming befuddled.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case


"As a parent, I was shocked by how little I knew about this world,"


That right there indicates a lack of parental presence and involvement. Kids aren't running from home or hating their parents because of video games- they're hating them because they're not paying enough fucking attention.

"I ran away and cycled my bike across town one day when I was much younger"



Shoot, I was 18 and I drove from my parents to a public park, just because I wanted to get away from them for a few hours- I was angry with them, too. Alot of kids do the same thing- this one just happened to climb up a tree while playing and broke his neck when he fell.

"When we talked to them, we had large monitors playing video-game footage as background, and y--"


That's it, show's over, T.V. off, this more or less proves it. This is like that episode of the Simpsons where they paint Homer as a sexual predator, only in this case, they didn't have to edit. Much. What self-respecting news reporter sets the stage so that it fits his scaremongering that much more? These people should be flooded with complaints for forcing a news segment with obvious media tricks. This MIGHT have worked 20 years ago, but MOST of us know better.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

I find it extremely odd how they are pointing out how focus professional gamers are. Well, they are professionals, if they are not glued onto the screen, then there is something extremely wrong.

As others say, if you play video games, even kids could tell the difference. It's not that realistic.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Didn't the parents state they don't blame there son's death on videogames?

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

This is one of the reasons that CBC Should be privatized

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

Does anyone else think that the events around this kids death are highly suspicious?  Brandon died falling out of a tree?  His parents want to start up a charity in his name to help underpriveliged childern...play sports?  If Brandon spent "all of his time" playing CoD4, then why sports?  It's almost as if these parents were afraid that their son was gay because he didn't play sports and spent all his time playing video games.  That supposed "argument" that happenned the night he ran away...what was it really about?

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

Yeah because it totally would have made sense if they started a charity to help underpriveliged children buy copies of CoD4.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

From their little blurb on the site about it:

"His disappearance, and death, became a national news story as it revealed a dark side to what many thought was a harmless entertainment."

What dark side? The kid ran away because he did not get his own way. This has probably happened to 1000's of kids. I ran away and cycled my bike across town one day when I was much younger because of a fight with my parents when they took my sisters side in an argument. The exact same thing this kid did, the only difference is, I didn't fall out of a tree and die while I was gone. If I had done, would there have been a massive news expose on sibling fighting and it's "dark side"?

"Findlay investigates how a video gaming obsession can turn to addiction and a pro gaming circuit with thousands of dollars in potential winnings, experts say, can fuel the need to play."

Maybe Findlay should investigate trees, how climbing them is potentially appealing to kids, but which can be dangerous, experts say, due to the nature of gravity.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

I don't like the Fith Estate. CBC most of the time straddles the centralist line, but on occasion programs like Marketplace and the Fith Estate fly a left wing bias. I mean, the Fith Estate did a doccumentry on Hockey Fights and it was clearly shown the producers of that episode wanted hocky fights banned. And Marketplace just did one wanting Airsoft guns and BB guns regulated.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Yep, The Fifth Estate and Marketplace are notorious for pushing a particular point of view and not being at all objective or displaying journalistic integrity.  A while ago, Marketplace was doing a expose on on-site computer companies, they slammed the company I was working for at the time.  They did a "sting" operation with one of our technicians and blatantly edited the footage to make him (and I suspect others) far less knowledgable than they were.  The sting also consisted of a problem that they claimed any skilled technician should have been able to diagnose in seconds but which was in fact a very difficult problem that it would have taken even me a while to figure out and I've been doing that kind of work professionally for 11 years.  These shows are designed to be sensationalistic and to stir up fear and anger.  They are not to be trusted.  I guarantee you this Fifth Estate piece will put the blame squarely on gaming and not the fact that Brandon was a troubled kid with a discipline problem.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

there not all bad though, what I like about those programs is they are doing real journalism for a change and not just reporting for better or for worse. Some episodes of Marketplace I like such as the one with the Heart and Stroke Foundations health check, or the caloric values in some dine in resturants compared to fast food chains. Not everything they say is fallacy, but you have to decern which is fact and which is spin.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Wait, so you think real journalism involves pulling strings of fallacy after fallacy out of you-know-where?

I didn't know real journalism was about editing footage to get out-of-context quotes.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Well a bit, but I just call that bad journalism. Most "journalist" just report on news and not really uncover anything. Real journalism involves uncovering dirty trades, regulations, and corruption in the world. It's generally really hard to keep a balanced ubiased view of the subject though, so most of the time you get a partiality of some viewpoint.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

This is a vital story because no kid in history has every left his house after a fight with his parents until now.  Only interactive entertainment can cause this kind of behavior.

It would appear that the sky is falling.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Has to be said...

"Turning every violent teen male fantasy into reality"

-It's not a reality... it's a fucking video game.  It's an image on the screen.  What is the difference between this or Nightmare on Elm Street, another "popular teenage male violent fantasy?"
 

"When we talked to them, we had large monitors playing video-game footage as background, and you could see it: They couldn't take their eyes off the screens," says Findlay.

-They are competing, in competition.  You see the exact same behavior from Olympic Competitors if they are being interviewed as someone else is performing.  Those screens are not still images.  Those screens are the gameplay tactics and techniques those people will be facing soon.  Not watching these battles is a mistake.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

"...Turning every violent teen male fantasy into reality..."

Riiiight. Let me know when video game controllers have the same kick to the shoulders as a shotgun, and then I'll actually try to keep a straight face instead of laughing in yours.

"When we talked to them, we had large monitors playing video-game footage as background, and you could see it: They couldn't take their eyes off the screens," says Findlay.

Yes because your face, and what you're saying is so much more attention grabbing than LARGE MONITORS playing footage of something they're interested in.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

Heh.  That line did strike me as kinda odd.... I wonder if these guys can't tell fantasy from reality since a game is, well, more fantasy.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case ...

People need to learn what addiction is, what cause and affect is, that game addiction is affect not cause (except maybe MMOs due to the social part of it), and they should not talk about subjects until they actually have scientific proof of what they are talking about when it has been out in the public this long as a topic.  They are just sensationalizing this crap to up their ratings when they know they are telling lies or do not care about the truth to begin with.

I feel sorry for the kid and family and hope the family can overcome the grief, but im hoping this will be entertain since this is often how the media loves to curly sue their facts all the way just to get viewers and as always,Paint a public image of gamers.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

I'm so sick of hearing about this guy, as I felt the whole story was blown way out of proportion and just downright irritated me. I was hoping we wouldn't have to hear anymore about him after his death was confirmed. Can't we just let the kid rest in peace now?

News reports about him make me miss JT.

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

There's a lot of stuff that would look real; however, to a experienced player, people can see how unrealistic half the stuff in the game (recoil, accuracy of weapons, health regen) is.  \

I'm recording this; should really be interesting to watch (if I don't rage half the time)

Re: CBC To Air Investigative Report into Brandon Crisp Case

Definite truth about the realism there - the first time you witness a medic rush in Battlefield 1942, you'll never be able to think of a game as "realistic". Also, respawning completely distorts the reality of the game. If there were even minor real-world consequences to death in a war game, like an electric shock to the dead player's keyboard, it would completely change the structure of the game. Players would never shoot to kill, and would very rarely leave cover at all.

Wonder how long it'll be before turnip posts a FAIL pic...

Everything that has to be said about such a blatant sensationalist shit story like this has been said.  Only thing I would like to comment is the quote "Turning every violent male fantasy into a reality..."

No, no it does not.  It's not reality, it's still a fantasy.  The characters that die on the screen aren't real, they're a bunch of coding.  That blood splatter you see?  Coding.  The grenade explosion?  Coding. Only an already broken mind would look at that and not realize it's fake.

Bleh, too early for this.

Yeah, isnt that a wonderful trade off.  You do a great job with only one minor mistake and you get bitched at, while they do a horrid job, dont report on the facts at all, and rarely actually investigate at all, and make a decent living doing so.  Even worse, they are the A-holes that will point out every minor flaw in your program to screw you over.

MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm

Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
