On May 9th, a student of ChenZhou Vocational and Technical College in Hunan Province(China) murdered his roommate with a fruit knife due to losing three consecutive games in the online game called League of Legends.
That was a Friday, when most of the students went back home at night, blood was found by a cleaner in front of room 6323 at around 7pm. Police officers arrived with hurry and broke into the room, they found Po Lee dead already and Kai Liu was sitting in the corner.
According to Liu, Lee is from the country called JiaHe in China, which is also a part of Hunan Province. Liu was 16 years old and Lee was 18 years old while they were both studying computer science in the same class.
“They hang out a lot, they were good friends.” Class teacher Guo said, “Lee also did well at school, he was the outstanding student of the school. But Liu did not have any mental problems either.”
Spokesperson of the college Jie Liu said it was triggered by a game, but no further detail of how the murder was committed. There is, however, rumor that they were playing the game “League of Legends”, Liu lost his marbles after three loss and stabbed Lee with a fruit knife.
Professor of psychology in Xiangnan University Yu thinks that teenagers have high curiosity, they love to imitate interesting things. Their mind, personality or even behavior will be affected if exposed to violent video games for long hours. “They might bring things happened in video games to real life.” he said.
“The game is the cause of this!” Lau(spokesman) sighed. “Kids nowadays love to play video games rather than studying.”
