Fatal Hero: There comes a moment where you fall in love with a video game over a single event.
I can remember my Call of Duty: Modern Warfare moment vividly. I was sitting behind a digital gas station, holding firm among the stray bullets and hellfire missiles, watching a sniper sit atop “Grandma’s House” methodically picking off my teammates running to a back alley. In that moment I pulled up my scope, held my breath along with my video game counterpart, and dropped him in a single shot. Moments like these incited endless hours of enjoyment for gamers as they poured over weapon unlocks, kill streak rewards, and beautifully diverse maps.
