Hardcore Gamer Becomes a Hero Stephen Fung June 2, 2007 Extras With all the flack that the gaming industry has been getting for corrupting our youth into homicidal maniacs, it’s nice to see that, for once, hardcore gamers are put into a positive light. Unfortunately, this “Hardcore Gamer” had to prove what he was made of by tackling some armed robbers and getting a bullet to the chest for his troubles. Brave Adam Mapleson, 24, was gunned down as he raced to help a terrified woman security guard. Fellow commuters watched in horror as two gun thugs who had held up the woman as she loaded a cashpoint machine shot the IT consultant outside his local rail station. I’d like to see those politicians that are trying to push anti-videogame legislation pull off something heroic like that. Get well soon Adam! Source: The Sun UK Share This With The World!
