Some guy in South Carolina decided to play Frogger earlier this week, but he wasn’t playing the original arcade version or any of the console or handheld ports. This guy actually ran out into a 4 lane highway and started trying to dodge cars. It ended how you’d expect, and he was struck by a car and sent to the hospital. This wasn’t some stupid 6 year old kid, either, it was a 23 year old man. Obviously the temptation to copy what we see in video games is too strong.
The guys from Giant Bomb attended this year’s California Extreme show and put together some great footage of their time on the show floor speaking with attendees, vendors, and show organizers. Here’s a link to the Giant Bomb page: http://www.giantbomb.com/giant-bomb-at-california-extreme-2010/17-2922/
I wasn’t able to get out to CAX this year, but am planning on getting there next year.
