According to Kotaku.com



Quote

Authorities say this 27-year-old man, angered when his mother asked him to quiet down while playing Warcraft, choked her and rammed his head through a wall before his grandfather finally shot him. He wasn't seriously wounded. Nerd rage'll do that.

James Swan (pictured) of Manatee, Fla. was drinking and playing World of Warcraft around 10 p.m. on Feb. 11 when his 50-year-old mother asked him to pipe down, as her three grandchildren were trying to sleep at that hour. Cops say Swan ignored her, and when she put her hand on his shoulder, he flipped the f- out.

The Bradenton Herald got the police report, and it says Swan grabbed his mother by the hair and threw her across the bed. She managed to get to the kitchen phone to call 911, but he tore it out of the wall, rammed his head through the hole where it had been, then threw her on the ground and started choking her. That's when his grandfather - mom's dad - got a gun from a gun closet. Still holstered, the gun misfired in a struggle and Swan was grazed behind the left ear.

Before you get huffy, no one's pinning this on the game, although it would boost MMOs' street cred considerably. Pretty much everyone can point the finger at the demon likker. Meantime, Swan is in the slammer, probably pissed that his raiding party hasn't formed up to bust him out.



Here's the link to the site with a mugshot photo of the loser...

Wow. That's just pathetic if you ask me. He has some serious anger issues.

I think the bigger issue is why is he still living with his mother at the age of 27 playing WoW?

I still don't understand how drinking and playing WoW could ever be a bad idea.
I thought that was the only time TO play WoW.

...Is my brother doing it wrong?




I think this man's problem is that he wasn't drinking enough.

Not drinking enough to induce alcohol poisoning?

Cause yeah, then he definitely should have had more. :<

Another question is...why did he ram his own head?

This guy had to have some mental issues. I can't believe drinking would make him try to kill his own mother. (I would hope at least)

Actually...

They didn't mention any of the sort on that article, (which when something like this they usually post MENTALLY ILLNESS before anything is even said) so it can only be assumed so far. I may have stated the obvious, but there is the chance he actually may not have an mental disorders.

Diagnosed or undiagnosed, the fact that he injured his mother over something so trivial and the fact that he lashed out so suddenly clearly point to being mentally ill in some way.

So how does this WoW work? Is it anything like the stereotypes that South Park parodied? I never played a MMORPG so I wouldnt know. I have heard of people who played these kind of games for hours and it kinda consumes their lives for real. I remember people egtting hooked on Everquest. I know I play video games for hours but even I know when to say when and take a break and do something else.

The stereotypes do have some truth to them. I have a friend who was addicted to WoW (incidentally, another friend of mine was addicted to EverQuest as well). At the time, he was taking Adderall, which proved to be kind of an enabler - he was able to focus, but in turn that meant he was able to sit down and play games for extended periods of time. He got into WoW, and it was only after he stopped taking Adderall that he dropped the game, as he couldn't focus long enough to make it worthwhile. He saw it as a kind of boon, since he knew he was getting horribly addicted to it. To this day he vows that if my husband or I starts playing WoW, he will come after us with a spoon.

My other friend, now, she was a special case. We'd go to her house to visit her - at her invitation - and she'd be playing EverQuest. And when it was time for us to all go where we planned, she didn't always come willingly. There were times where we had to physically remove her from the desk and chair, as well as shut down her computer. I don't recall how or when she stopped playing, but it certainly made for good stories later.
