Cheater’s Brain Stabbed in Wallhack Brawl

The article http://www.sankakucomplex.com/...">http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2010/03/22/cheaters-brain-stabbed-in-wallh... ([color=red]WARNING: There are some video game related graphics, plus a graphic image of the knife in the victim's head[/color]) says:

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!

I see both points of view.

I see both points of view. I mean if you're expected to follow rules (laws) in the real world and have consequences when you don't, how much more so should you be expected to follow them in a simple thing such as a virtual world?

I don't know it seems though that the stabbing occurred after some other type of provocation. Which makes more sense.

Skopos, I agree that things

Skopos, I agree that things like cheating, whether it be in the real or virtual worlds, is inappropriate and there should be consequences. However, this case is an example of vigilante type justice where somebody decided to be the judge, jury and executioner. Instead, the more appropriate consequences would have been to stop playing with this person, report him to the game company, let the Internet cafe owner know about this, etc.

As for the provocation afterwards, the article is not 100% clear on this to me, but it does definitely seem to have been a result of an argument about the claimed cheating.

I remember back in the day

I remember back in the day when gaming was supposed to be "fun"...so many of the games these days are pvp based (player vs player) and creates "nerdrage", I know first hand how you get a high when you "pwn" other players...I also know the rage and anger you feel when you get pwned. A lot of the FPS (first person shooters) have a lot of hackers, especially the free ones like Combat Arms, you can't find many games where there isn't at least 1 hacker playing. I know first hand how angry you get i have boken keyboards, mice, slammed my firsts on the desk, punched walls, etc....I don't know if I would ever hurt someone, but when your filled with rage, common sense fails.

I am well aware during game

I am well aware during game play cheaters have some not very nice things said about them. I don't like cheaters in the game but I would not ever stab them. I agree with J.DOe that games are being taken to seriously. How will games affect people in the future?

Thats what i say too...games

Thats what i say too...games are not games anymore there like serious competitions ,and you best know the rules, and best not cheat or you can in this case with the 17 year old pay an extreme price . like Devildog said it creates nerdrage, and imo false reputations that people take to serious floating around out there,and its all done for virtual items or points and achievments that shouldn't mean squat in the realworld...PS.. i wouldn't read the comments that follow after that story on the page either there just as bad, and imature.

Imagine the future games where you can trade those virtual items or points or achievements in for real world cash, what will people be like then?

You think humankind will drastically change because of that?

I personally think it would be awesome to make money from gaming, I mean then it would actually be constructive instead of a complete waste of time.
