The last thing that Amos Walker saw. This still image was displayed on the TV screen when the body was discovered.

Burbank,Ca.-Amos Walker was such a video game fanatic that he had all three major video game systems, but his favorite was the WEE. So enthralled was he with the system's interactive features that he pre-bought every single interactive title months before it was released. His last purchase was the first person shooter game "Tactical Weapons".

His deep involvement in the game may have caused his death. Police found Mr. Walker 's lifeless, bullet ridden body slumped over in his chair, the gun shaped joystick still clutched in his hand. Bullet holes had also punctured the large screen LCD TV on which the game had been played.

Police have determined that the bullets came from within the set, based on glass shards found on Mr. Walker's living room floor. The discovery has prompted a nation-wide recall of the game title, which they believe is responsible for Mr. Walker's death. Authorities caution people not to play the game and return it to the place of purchase for refund or exchange.

The case is still under investigation. Mr. Walker had no immediate family.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
