Quote:A gamer accused of cheating in a net cafA(c) game of CounterStrike narrowly escaped death after irate players skewered his head on a knife.
The incident began in a net cafA(c) in ChinaaEU(tm)s northern province of Jilin, when a group of youths apparently noticed a 17-year-old boy they had been playing CounterStrike with had been cheating by using a "wallhack" to allow himself to see through walls.
Fortunately, the victim survived, with the knife removed after a 10-hour operation, without apparently any major damage to things like his motor control despite passing through that area. However, the knife was rusty so the doctors are concerned that some of that rust remained in his brain.
Regardless of to what extent, if any, this player was actually cheating, this shows that some players take playing video games way too seriously!
