Man Stabbed in the Chest After World of Warcraft Argument

Ottawasun: Jordan Osborne alleges he was stabbed when he went to his neighbour's apartment on Wednesday after hearing an argument.

“I was telling him, there is no need for you to be freaking out about World of Warcraft. It’s just a game,” Osborne said, while his neighbour fought with a friend who was visiting and some other players over his headset. “He said, ‘It’s not just a game, it’s my life.’”

That’s when the man grabbed his throat, punched him in the face and stabbed him in the chest, Osborne said. (Culture, PC, World of Warcraft)

somebody fuck with your account you been playing for yours and invested countless hours and money into..... but i didnt read the article so i dont know how deep it is

People that say ANY game is their "life"... Probably need to be put away. It's the same as a drug at that point, there needs to be an institution like they have for rehab. I love WoW, I was just playing it before reading this article, but people who take it too seriously are freaking idiots. I've sunk probably about 40+ days in-game time into it, but can't help laughing at people who act like there's nothing else but WoW.

Ehhh, who are you to say how someone should use their own life? People prefer doing different things all the time than what you're accustomed to. I do agree that it is a game but I also disagree that it's JUST a game. You pay to do everything with your time, in the eyes of time everything is the same.

I mean, some people go out with friends and get drunk and party the night away and only remember half of what happened. Some others run raids and stay up late gaming the night away.

Whatever they wish to do is fine with me, the only thing this person did was hurting someone else because of a silly argument.

This is when you say "probably needs to be put away".

the argument was not "silly", it's just a game.

Wow..can't believe people will actually say video game is their life...I mean playing...
The_Kills  +   1187d ago
Oh so its only bad if someone admits it? There are lots of people throwing away important things in life for games. Be appalled more people dont admit it.

Where the hell did I said that? Also, stop saying the obvious...<_<

I bet it was the rogue who backstabbed him for crit damage.

I never got the attraction of WoW. I mean it looks like a PS2 game, and the quests are repetitive and generic. I quit playing after my free month expired.

Wow really? The burning crusade is the best mmorpg ever made

Getting stabbed over a game? That's exactly why I play alone with my front door locked.

this dick who stabbed him deserves to go to prison.
jeeves86  +   1187d ago
Yikes! It happened in Canada, too - so probably no jail time for this guy. I don't think he'd be able to handle being separated from WoW for that long, anyway.
jessupj  +   1187d ago
Wow, to say that is extreme is an understatement.

Having said that, when I'm in a good mood and some idiot that doesn't know what he's talking about say's "it's just a game" I get very very pissed off.

Yes it's a game, but games are my hobby and they're important to me. So when someone tries to arrogantly disregard it, I get upset. But i wouldn't ever go far enough to stab someone in the face :P

acemonkey  +   1187d ago
thats fucking nuts...how old was the person to stab him? i know i love my games but damn when you start to get violent about the game being a game is stupid...i remember a couple months ago a kid killed his grandma b.c she said to turn the game off
Ramas  +   1187d ago

LMFAO! I'm not for the whole stabbing but remember there's always 2 sides to a story & no offense that guy at most deserved to get his a$$ molly whopped for putting his nose in others buisness & knocking his hobby. I highly doubt that's all he said to get stabbed but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt... It's sad that people let a game rule their lives, I understand getting pi$$ed because of hacking or camping etc but not to the point of screaming or abuse of your property... for God's sake just rage quit nerds HAHAHA!
