19 Bizarre Gaming Related Incidents.
I Love My Games But This Is What Happens When Gaming Is Taken Too Far.
With so many discussions flooding the online highway I researched a little more into gaming related incidents, and what I found was just a list of tragic and bizarre incidents which are connected with video game obsession. Although I do not believe video games were to blame in any of these incidents I do believe some people just should not be parents.
