Kid kills father over a video game

Apparently, a 14-year old (my age) killed his DAD after they stopped him from playing video games.

Opinion?

Over a game?… That’s really extreme. Though, this isn’t the only time this had happened. Many people killed their parents because they’ve restricting them from playing. What is surprising is the fact that they are willing to kill at such a young age (and over a damn game). Video game addiction is getting more serious these years. I’ve noticed there have been more and more reports of people playing non-stop for days and dying from exhaustion.

Even young adults are killing younger kids over video games.
A 25-year old stabbed a 9-year old to death just a few months ago. Read it here

The worst thing about this is that these people give gamers a bad name

I find this to be disgusting. It’s just wrong and it shows you how stupid some people are these days and as Cheezburger said: It gives us all a bad name as gamers.

For me, the weirdest thing is that it wasn’t a gun. It was a freakin’ sledgehammer. Too far, gamer kid, too far.

I’ve heard this story already too many times, its not games that causes this, its just some people are INSANE.

Yeah, sorta like that Starcraft guy, he died from staying up for 3 days playing Starcraft.

Well any how videos games are obviously bad because of this, now lets put all kids in jail who play them, in the name of our lord, Sarah Palin.

I saw this in my subscription box and noticed that it’s the exact same thing we were talking about.

I read about this on my phone in the G4TV Feed article since it was featured. The only thing that was really disturbing is that after he killed his father his mom gave him the keyboard back and the boy continued playing games (three, six hours was it?) till the cops came. What a pathetic mother. I woulda beat his ass.

Fucking stupid, the entire thing. And of course, one person from a group does something, then they all do. Thus; all gamers are potential murderers rather than this kid be absolutely messed up.
