Teen Strangles Father With Gamepad Cable

Gizmodo writes:
"A 18-year-old was arrested this week after trying to kill his father strangling him with the cable of his videoconsole gamepad. While the videogame console brand hasn't been disclosed yet, the police has been able to establish the circumstances that lead to the almost surrealistic (but strangely understandable) murder attempt."

Some kids, not all and lets not forget he was 18, by law you are mature enough.

That he tried killing his own dad like that just shows how sick the dude mentally is.

I agree with the writer of this article..." I don't approve of his actions, nor do I think I could do something like that but there are times when I have gone so far in a game and then somehow the power cuts or you lose you save game. I just freak out and start shouting at the nearest person...just shouting and hitting my controller on the side of my bed...I would never attack someone.

when i was about to beat FF7.....the disc was scratched so the game froze.....hours and hours wasted......i think my wall and i had a disagreement that day =)

Lol. It happened to me during the ending scene of Biohock...just being passed the key...ERROR. I was more shocked than angry. I almost cried...
In the end I had to watch the video on Youtube.

lol omg.....back then i didnt have youtube, had to do it all over again, this time i cleaned the disc so it played smoothly.....that was smart though, going to youtube to watch the video ;)

that's the beauty of checkpoints , your game will be saved automatically !!

and even if the game doesn't have checkpoints , there are always save points , I mean how much progress he really lost with save points and checkpoints very much every where in any game !!

I think the kid was angry because of the action itself , not that he lost his progress

Should have gone wireless, not only do you get the benefits of Wireless transmissions through your brain, you also remove the threat of being strangled.

...The future is wireless.... and possibly cancerous tumors.

Lol, nice one. Probably would have beat his dad with the controller though.
