A sledgehammer is a pretty low level weapon in video games. I guess he didn’t have access to the pump action shotgun.

Gamestop probably didn’t give him his pre-reserved shotgun code.

Doom would have been the chainsaw, Quake would have been the axe (or grappling hook if it was capture the flag).

It also sucks for a melee weapon, he would have been better going with the katana.

I call them VIDIOTS

Sometimes the success in the video world is the only success they enjoy.

A 14-year-old boy in southern Russia was charged with killing his father with a sledgehammer after his parents tried to stop him from playing computer games

But he refers to it as Grabthar's +4 Warhammer of Free Action.

After the killing, the boy's frightened mother gave him the keyboard back and the boy played computer games for several more hours until he fell asleep.... At that point, the mother, who was not injured, contacted relatives who in turn called police.

How coldhearted. What a sociopath this boy is.

The boy probably had a lot in common with the one that was recently “returned to sender”.

The Russian press reports also that the first question this boy asked was whether they had computers in prisons.
