Default Well, at least we know where Arka is...

Watch out who you kill in the virtual world, it may inspire someone to attack you in the real one.
That's what happened to one Frenchman, who was stabbed and nearly killed by a fellow "Counter-Strike" player, according to London's Telegraph.
Julien Barreaux reportedly spent six months looking for the person who killed his online character in a virtual knife fight, and eventually found the foe living only a few miles away in Cambrai, a town about 2 hours north of Paris.
The 20-year-old, armed with a real-life kitchen knife, went to the man's house and brutally stabbed him in the chest. The victim, identified only as Mikhael, survived the assault after the blade missed his heart by less than an inch.
"Barreaux was arrested within the hour and told us he had wanted to see his rival wiped out for killing off his character," a police officer testified at the trial, the Telegraph reported.
The overzealous video gamer will spend two years behind bars, and receive anger management therapy.
"You are a menace to society," Judge Alexiane Potel said. "I am frankly terrified of the disproportionate reaction you could have if someone looked at you the wrong way in the street."

Yeah, no shit. Guess he was rewarded for having bad aim.

God knows how many anti-gaming groups will use this for their propaganda. "See what video games are doing to your children??" Ignorant parents will eat that shit up.

It's really sad that I know this, but Counterstrike is a first person shooter (and a really old one at that) where you die over and over. This doesn't even make sense.

What it is that supposed to mean? Are you a certain kind of francophile? I piss on all that is American. How dare make you light of this, it is clearly a national tragedy in France! Merde! How could one play of Counterstrike in France when Team Fortress 2 is clearly the sharp one of the technology of play. You think that America is the center of the world, think you that America is all light, the good one and softnessů what of your sinister crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan? Which of your odious atrocities culinary do you call the American kitchen? Your country is not adapted to rub the piss of the halls of Versailles. I poop on the l'American flag and all those which never captured a flag in Team Fortress 2.

I am guessing its just a lurker making a joke. A real frenchman would never post on this forum without a promise from his government that it would count as his employment obligations for the next 3 years and qualify him for more time on their dole.
