A Thai distributor has yanked popular road rage crime game Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360, PS3) off store shelves after a teenager claimed the game inspired him to commit a murder/robbery.

"We are sending out requests today to outlets and shops to pull the games off their shelves and we will replace them with other games," Sakchai Chotikachinda of New Era Interactive Media told Reuters.

The18-year-old suspect faces the death penalty for robbing and stabbing a 54-year-old taxi driver to death. The high school student told police that he did not plan on killing the victim until the driver fought back.

"He said he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game," said a Thai chief police investigator.

Damn.
