This guy didnt even do it from home! He was at an internet cafe?!? Holy crap!
Hey, at least it didn't happen in the US, where his relatives would instantly sue the cafe, the game makers, and "The Internet" for "negligence" in the death of their son.
Have you guys been to an internet cafe recently?
Used to be you'd see a bunch of people quietly surfing the net or writing resumes or papers.
Now it seems like they are all full of young people who do nothing for hours on end but play games (at full volume no less) involving a lot of violent imagery.
I'm not down on video games, even enjoy them myself from time to time, but it's pretty clear that some people don't quite know where to draw the line between fun and addiction.
Max....I spent the last 3 years playing Asheron's Call...finally quit a couple weeks ago...
VERY fun game turned into a horrible addiction that can really ruin many aspects of your life.
Frankly, I don't see the problem. Yes, it's sad that he died but he at least died doing something that he liked. It was his choice...
Rain: Points well taken. However, I would argue that the alternative is much worse: Having the line dictated to you.
Um, never mind. :b
I still haven't cancelled my two Asheron's Call accounts. Haven't played in a month! Now I'm between games.
Screw it. I'll go skirt-chasing!
The real question is what game was he playing?
Sell your accounts, and buy PC hardware or HT trinkets or DVDs.
I've got a friend who has logged over 2400 hrs. on Everquest since last August. Needless to say, he's addicted. You can't hardly get him to do anything else anymore. Are there support groups for this? I love video games myself, but that is just too much.
Max: ONly up here in canada where its too cold for them to wear skirts Hey, i dont mind skintight jeans either
