Not deserving a major headline or anything, but just a funny read, in a sense that a 46-year-old man with three children can't control his temper over being killed in a mere video game. (bit creepy at the same time also)

Some of those comments disgust me. The lighter ones say "I hope he's scarred for life" and "Too bad he didn't kill him". The worse ones I wouldn't repeat on here.

I'm glad the mother was there, but I'm curious if the man knew the boy in real life or how he got the address.

Mostly trolls. It's best if you ignore those comments.

...What else can you say but how disgusting this is? He's a grown man, he needs to get a goddamn grip on reality and not take out his anger on a child over something as futile as a video game.

I find this sickening. It's one thing to lose at a game, it's another thing to hunt the kid down and try to murder him.

...Just wow.

That is sad, that man should have some control, I mean, really? A child? Pathetic.

You just took the words right out of my mouth. If you have to make this big of a deal over dying in a video game, you have some kind of issue.

he could have gotten the address by google searching his gamer name or something.

How the hell is this a "funny read"?

And I don't care if the comments are from "trolls", its still horrendously disgusting and I'm sure some of them actually believe what they wrote

If the guy is rage gaming that hard, he needs to go punch pillows, and or some inanimate object, instead of hunting down said child, and attacking him. =w= I mean, really. I've heard of people killing each other over video game related things before: adults, kids, etc, and it's just.. weird. People take things too seriously, and need to grow up. >__>

Look at all this heated discussion.

It's stupid and mean and disgusting and pathetic and whatever, but I still got a chuckle out of how seriously he took it.

I am amused by the immaturity and lack of calmness in the face of adversity (getting killed in a Call of Duty game really isn't adversity, however) this father exhibits. I pity the children who may replicate his behavior at a later time.

Utter contempt for physically assaulting a child due to a game, though.

^ lol anyway, it's just so immature and pathetic, but at least he could admit that he had no idea what had gotten into him. I can slightly imagine his reaction actually, the kid should have maybe just not provoked him like that and if anything, he should have just muted him or something. BUT of course it's ridiculous and it is just a game, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND it is rated 18 so what's a 13 year old kid doing there anyway. And on that other hand I play 18 rated games as well while I'm not 18 yet so argh, nvm this whole post lol.

If a grown-up is unable to handle the behavior of a teenager then he shouldn't be raising children or be considered an adult. What did he expect from a 13 year-old boy playing a Call of Duty game, eloquence and manners?

I'd worry about this man's own children if he can't control himself in all the time it took him to find this kid's house.

The guy just needs to grow up. COD is a game. It should be enjoyed by everyone. Yeah, people talk ****, that's life. If you really are letting what all these people say get to you, well then you need to... not do that. C:Sound logic! xD. He admits to not really knowing what got into him, but honestly...? That's a bit of crossing the line when it comes to strangling someone.

The dad is also a loser. No job, 3 kids, plays COD all day, and worst of all, from what the article made it out to be, he isn't very good. Haha. He should get his life together, get a job, get priorites, things that matter(obv. his kids aren't enough if he's going around strangling people and playing playstation all day). Maybe if he gets a job, he won't have spare time to strangle kids.

Ha. Pathetic.

This is what these mindless games are doing to people.

Seriously though, he has three children of his own? He should have gotten his children taken away from him. Disgusting.

That's quite the rage he had going there, and I wonder what his children will feel about this situation. But on the other hand, I feel the boy brought this on himself seeing as how the man said the 13-year old was constantly badgering him through the microphone. Hopefully the young teen learned a lesson. Disgusting.

No joke. Especially Yu-Gi-Oh! That is so serious business it's not even funny. If some obnoxious little scrubby kid beat me in YGO, I would just ask for the knife. Just give me the knife so I can end it now.

If you watch a little bit of those videos, you will see the type of person I never want to - EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE AND BEYOND - lose against. He could have beaten me if he top decked Judgment Dragon in the third duel but thankfully he is not as sacky as Forever who drops triple Judgment Dragon on my ass.

There are too many people in this world who take games far too seriously. Even on Dueling Network, I encounter sore losers and what not and it's just pitiful. I can be more understanding if it's like a big event and you're dueling to reach the final matchups or whatever but if it's just a casual game, there's really no need to be such a bad sport.

Wow.. just wow. It's a good thing that kid's mother was there. Let me ask a question. Was this man on any sort of medication that he may or may not have taken on that day? If not, he needs to be. Immediately, if possible.

I agree with this to a certain degree. Badgering someone over a game is plain immature, but for a grown man to actually fall into a thirteen-year-old's own foolish slander and go after him like that isn't any better on his part. In my opinion, it's far worse than how he described the kid's behavior while playing a game nonetheless.

Wasn't there a similar case in France (?) a while back where a guy was beaten by another guy in a video game - and tracked him, came to his home (and I'm pretty sure the victim lived in an entirely different corner of the country) and attempted to stab him?
The solution to problems like this? If the slightest possibility exists that you might not be able to handle anger about a video game properly, play Singleplayer games, it saves you the work of trying to find out who and where your tormentor is and the only things that will be hurt will be your computer and maybe your fist. The former only costs money and for the latter every at least halfway functioning country has a healthcare program :p

Damn, man., This is the prime example of one guy ruining everything for all of us COD players who just enjoying getting killed. Here's what I would do if I got killed: See myself get killed, curse a bit and then go back into the fray and get killed again. Not become a detective and find out where that kid lives.

I'm sorry, but I do not feel bad for this kid. He deserved it. And the guy, he should know better. And where is the mother in all of this? She's the reason this happened! She let her son play that game when it is clearly made for older gamers and she should have taught him more manners than that.

Blame the mother!

An adult should know what to expect from a boy barely a teenager. Did he play with a 13 year-old boy expecting the wisdom and reservation that comes with age? The boy was childish to act like he did, but the man was still more foolish to be provoked by him. Being annoyed by a teenager is no excuse to physically assault the boy, only a demonstration of immaturity that only the teenager should've shown, not the parent.

o.e WTF that guy needs some serious help. When I get killed in CoD by some punk kid who won't shut up I just block them, simple as that. My main question is how the hell did he get the kids address? Also I beleive parents should not let a game console or tv be a babysitter, if a game or a show is seen as inappropriate for your childs age do not let them play/watch it.

Well I suppose we can look forward to a revival of the "SRS BSNS" spam and endless joker references being thrown at anyone who gets angry in a video game on our favorite competitive video games in some sort of poorly thought out scheme to prevent this from happening in the future. -_-;

(Just like last time, and the time before that! Yay progress!)

I can feel the parts of my brain dictating logic and humor screaming in agony already.

Taking a step back, I should explain myself. This sort of thing happens... well, not very often. In fact, it's an extremely rare crime in the grand scheme of things. Being someone who accepts that we cannot 100% kill crime, I don't really feel obligated to care past sympathy for the victim and justice being done to the offender... which have both been done. That being said, it amazes me how people freak out at this as if attacks over the internet are a large problem or at any risk of becoming one. Not only does it get harder and harder to defeat crime the closer we get to actually getting rid of it altogether, but we've got hundreds upon hundreds of bigger problems on our priority list that we can use the same manpower to make a much bigger difference!

That and the methods with which people fight it in video games are /always/ horribly ineffective. It's amazing how trolls and people genuinely trying to help can act the same way in video games. It baffles me, quite frankly.

You'd think it would occur to people trying to help that telling people to get over it with lame, often spammed humor is a terrible way to get anything done. Rational people who are not prone to hunting people down over the internet will just get angrier and at the end of the day, nothing will get done except taking a dozen minutes out of their lifespan via stress. Irrational people who are, will be provoked into doing exactly that, hunting people down!

These people need serious professional help, not a kick in the pants. >>; Quite frankly, considering from the sound of it, the boy who was attacked is going to be okay, the world is probably a better place because of this incident. (Mainly because logic dictates that offender needs to be put in jail and kept in jail until he gets enough therapy to qualify as /sane/ again.)



...On the bright side, perhaps this can be used as an example of why /not killing internet anonymity/ and instead protecting it is important. I glare at Mark Zuckerberg when I say that.

That is just wrong.
I can understand having a go at them online. But it's sick when they track them down and attempt to kill them. The guy should grow some balls, just because he can't play, doesn't mean he has to hurt them who can play. And it's a good thing I don't play CoD

Kids in general can be retards over Xbox Live/PSN, some are seriously skilled in game terms without being seriously mature (because they either lack self control and don't put effort into school and/or they steal their older brother's account and play off that one).

I can understand someone being tempted to hunt down one of those kids and strangle them in real life, but personally I'd never act on those temptations. Instead I go to work and earn money that I can spend for myself, feeling grateful that I'm not the parent of one of those kids just yet.

If I was him I would have just rage quit the game rather than choking a 13 year old boy just because I lost to a game, wouldn't the boy get a fine for playing a R18+ game that he not suppose to play at a young age?

Are you talking about this article:

Oh, jeez, that dude is pathetic. Black Ops isn't that great anyway. I hope the kid's alright... and I love how a lot of those people are commenting on how he was playing a rated M game, NO ONE listens to those things.

Have you ever played an online shooter with a 12 year old on a mic? I'm not defending this guy's actions, but they're horrible little sociopathic buggers. I really can't believe people are surprised over this. It's one of those "I wish I could punch people through the internet" moments, except he actually did it.

And to be bluntly honest, I hope the little rat learned something from the experience. There's a reason you don't talk crap to someone bigger than you. That's a valuable life lesson for anyone to learn.

I see no point in fussing over the incident, the man's probably a psychopath or has some issues with his brain. In that case, I don't think he'd be fully aware of what he was doing or if it was good or bad.

.. or he's just complex and then we should burry him alive? /sarcasm

There are many complex people, okay not to that extent, but there are, (and so I repeat) I don't see any point in talking about what he did. It's not surprising at all, like the one above me said, since it involves the internet. Also the mother should teach some manners to her kid.

I gotta ask though, what was a jobless guy doing playing Black Ops...?

Mr. X
November 4th, 2011, 02:32 PM
Isn't CoD rated M? Kid shouldn't have been playing CoD anyway.

Perhaps this will teach him to follow the ratings on the box?

Anyway, when I think of a person getting attacked over a game I always think about the one kid who got stabbed for using cheats in... Counter-Strike I think. Can't remember where he got stabbed, but I think it was in the head. He lived.
