New York's videogame whiz is the best in the world
The New York Post had a brief mention of "teenage video game whiz" Sal "Volcano" Garozzo of Manhattan College, who recently won his second straight world gaming gold medal. The total prize money was $50,000, which he will split with his four other Team 3D teammates. The five teens won the title at last week's World Cyber Games in Singapore, where they defeated teams from Pakistan and Kazakhstan playing "Counter Strike."
Anyway, it's interesting to see that the next generation of kids in Pakistan and Kazakhstan are growing up playing a counter-terrorism videogame. One can only imagine Osama & the Gang, gathered around their cave in the mountainous regions of Pakistan, playing Counter-Strike on a bootleg Xbox to pass the time.
