The World of Warcraft universe is a happy, thriving community. There is a strong social aspect to it and players can become friends with each other. The game world of Azeroth follows the real world calendar and so they mark holidays and seasonal events in the game.

Grand Theft Auto was blamed for an incident in the US where a teen shot three people probably more for the sake of the hefty lawsuit against one of the world's biggest retailers.

Nope, gotta be the game.
