I know World of Warcraft is pretty serious business. I have seen Mr. T on the commercials so I know it's important. Important enough for a man to get stabby over it. That is for real serious. I threw a controller once during a Call of Duty game but never felt the need to stab anyone.
PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — A man enraged over the online videogame World of Warcraft allegedly stabbed a neighbour in the chest sending him to hospital.
“I was sitting in my house today thinking ‘should I be dead or shouldn’t I?’” said Jordan Osborne, 20, on Thursday, who was hospitalized with a stab wound to his sternum. “And it’s all over a World of Warcraft game.”
Osborne alleges he was stabbed when he went to his neighbour's Peterborough, Ont., apartment on Wednesday after hearing an argument.
“I was telling him, there is no need for you to be freaking out about World of Warcraft. It’s just a game,” Osborne said, while his neighbour fought with a friend who was visiting and some other players over his headset. “He said, ‘It’s not just a game, it’s my life.’”
That’s when the man grabbed his throat, punched him in the face and stabbed him in the chest, Osborne said.
