Yeah, those guys obviously never saw how angry my brothers got when I stole all the items in Golden Axe.

That's playing a cooperative game in a competitive manner.

Wouldn't be surprised given how much kids rage when I kill them online. Some of them really need a swift kick in the nuts.

Has anyone died over a video game match yet? I know many sports have resulted in murders. I honestly think anything compettitive raises aggression. It is just the nature of the game.

Aggressive people are more likely to be drawn to competitive gaming.
