Well, that was bound to happen sooner or later, wasn't it? I mean, gaming obsession as homewrecker is well documented. I myself had TWO nemeses conspire to destroy my marriage - the hussies XBox and PS2. Worse than any two-cent whore or Carmen Electra. So the fact that online gaming has claimed its first corporeal death is no surprise. What is surprising to me is the seeming nonchalance of this cybercafe to the fact that the man had a makeshift bed. What?

Houston, we have a problem.

Computer gaming...it can definitely destroy marriages and relationships...but I honestly don't know how. I mean, shit....Sex and companionship is WAY better than a friggin keyboard.
