According to this Reuters report, sales of GTA IV have been suspended in Thailand after a teenager murdered a taxi driver.

The 18 tear-old said he robbed and killed the man while trying to recreate a scene from the game.

“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,” said Sakchai Chotikachinda, sales and marketing director of New Era Interactive Media.
