Sad sad "gaming" story out of California last night. Not much else to say.... Thanks to cagey for the linkage.

A 28-year-old Ceres man is being held without bail after police said he fatally shot his mother in the head, blaming her for breaking his video-game headset during an argument.

Investigators determined Matthew Nicholson had been in his bedroom playing video games when he got upset and started yelling. When his mother went to check on him, he began to argue with her and ended up breaking the headset to his video game, police said.

Nicholson then blamed her for the broken headset and threatened to kill the victim and Nicholson’s father.
