Ok, so here’s a scary story.

Today I was chatting to my doctor and he starts telling me this story of how he used to play Battlefield 2142. He tells me that over time he found out that some of his patients played on the same servers and while he knew their online names, they didn’t know his.

He pointed out that one night, the one guy sniped him twice in the head on some map and he wasn’t very impressed. Two years down the line, the dude is in his office for some Vitamin B something injection or whatever that burns like all hell and as the doctor is about to put in the injection he says to him “BTW, I’m [Gamertag here] and you sniped me twice in the head in Battlefield, now it’s time for revenge”.

Needless to say the dude had a right ol’ panic attack when he started feeling the crazy burn after the doctor dished out that line. After the prank was over I can only assume that the doctor let out a large, evil “Muhahahahaha” laugh, LOL.

Here’s the news we didn’t post out of fear, because our Dentist looks like the type of guy that would really, really suck at Halo.

    Hahahaha! Hilarious! Oddly, and almost parallel to your story my GP actually plays/ed WoW on the same server as me, but horde (whereas I’m Alliance). I discovered this after seeing a WOW figurine in her waiting room.

    You can never tell who’s a gamer these days πŸ˜› I wonder if Jacob Zuma plays Tropico or Civilization to practice his political skills…? :blink:

    Naahh!

    I love my dentist. He does a GREAT job, is a really nice guy, and I feel lucky to have found him. But his insight into computer is “Yes, I think that’s Windows 7…” πŸ™‚ Not quite as much fun as the mental attack yours did on the sniper! lol

    WTF? WHAT THE, WHAT!!!??
    were do all you people live? so that I can move there!!
    This is so F!!!!ING unheard of in my circles; work, doctors, even my friends…I literally have 3 or 4 friends that are kinda into gaming…you guys are seriously the only people I can communicate about the industry and stuff…Its insane in what circles some of you move or live in!!! I’m partly jealous and partly infuriated!…

    And BTW, ‘Kotick’, I am really interested what you do for a living, to find time between the hypotheses about gaming and WOW…and work. so please, for us interested folk, what do you do?
