Serious arcade gamer takes role-playing to a new level

2

I’m sure we all love games very much. They can provide an immersive experience that really sucks someone into the game’s world. One individual may have taken it a little too far, however, when he decided to visit his local arcade and insert a few quarters into a shoot-em-up. While the session seemed normal enough at first, before long he was performing real life actions such as taking cover, reloading, and at some points even touching the side of his head during dialogue to mimic the act of listening to a headset. It really has to be seen to be believed.

Despite his, err, unusual behavior, I have to respect this guy. His raw passion for his hobby can’t be denied, and his enthusiasm really is inspiring. If only more people were this energetic and focused, maybe the world would be a better place.

Although the video is from October of last year, it still holds up very well now. As of now it only has 43 views, which is a crime considering its interesting content. Go give it some well deserved attention.
