Sometimes people need to learn how to chill out, as is the case with this story out of Lancashire, UK. Here’s the story from This Is Lancashire:
TWO thugs brutally attacked a young man in a nightclub — because he beat their arcade game score.
Gareth Fitzsimmons had been using a games machine on which players pay £1 to thump a punch bag three times.
But when he beat the score set by two men nearby they set on him.
Mr Fitzsimmons, aged 22, from Great Lever, suffered a shattered jaw after being repeatedly kicked in the head.
That game would be Dragon Punch, or one of it’s clones, a game where you pull a punching bag down and hit it as hard as you can. The harder the hit, the higher the score. It’s a game that earns ridiculously well and it can be found in many locations all over the world but unfortunately I’m sure that anti-gaming heads will use this one example of a violent act occuring with a video game involved while ignoring the fact that these kind of games are played hundreds of times every day without such incidents following them up.
