Jason Lake put his family’s financial security on the line, spent 400,000 dollars out of his own pocket, and spent at least five hours a day engrossed in a single game. Jason Lake loved Counter Strike.
I just finished reading Game Boys by Michael Kane and it was an absolutely astounding book. It showed the story of gamers trying to be taken seriously on a broader scale along with the trials and speed bumps laid before them at almost every turn. To these players Counter Strike was not only a true sport but lifestyle.
