Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford tells a story he managed to hear at his China trip.
"I was a bit surprised when I was in China and I was told about a group of Monks who live in a temple next to a Cybercafe," Pitchford starts.
One of the Buddhist rules is, "Do not kill", which softens monks credibility and highlights the news. It seems the rule does not have any effects on playing videogames.
"I never thought I’d see a monk pull out his knife and hack someone to death because he’d run out of ammo!", Chris Lynch exploded.
"The monks I saw were mostly teenagers, dressed in dark maroon robes, but otherwise pretty much the same as boys everywhere. They were quieter, but not in an intense, competitive way — they were having a lot of fun shooting each other, and chatting among themselves while they did."
