The game was originally going to be titled "Highway Crossing Frog." Doesn't help this moron, but just a little trivia for you all.

I hope he has not, and will never, reproduce. We don't need his DNA in the gene pool.

Video games are the ruination of our youth. Ever since they became popular 30 years ago, quite a few kids and young "adults" waste many hours a day playing them, to the exclusion of everything else. They've been come isolated, obese, socially inept hermits sitting behind a game box or computer much of their life. And some of these idiots, such as this guy, actually try to reenact the games in real life. He could have caused someone to be killed as well as get himself killed. Hopefully he is charged with a serious crime and serves some jail time for his stupid actions instead of just a slap on the wrist. Parents need to stop this behavior from the start. Limit the game playing time to when you're home and for no more then an hour a day or don't buy them the games and the game boxes in the first place. Too many parents don't want to deny their little darlings anything and haven't for the last couple of decades. They don't seem to want to be responsible parents and tell their children "NO"! It's no wonder we have a large society of people who have the "gimmee, gimmee, gimmee" attitude so prevalent today.
