Filipino police are hunting for a schoolboy who shot a 17 year old girl with a home-made shotgun last Wednesday, apparently after suffering a string of humiliating defeats at her hands in a local computer store. There's no mention of which game they were playing, but according to a report from the Philippine Star the victim had started teasing the boy about his lousy playing after beating him several times. Eventually the boy "flew into a rage" outside the shop and shot the girl in the face, killing her instantly. It just goes to show that some people take their games far too seriously.
