Mass murderer was games addict

Written by Nick Farrell

8,700 hours online

Confessed right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik has told police that he was “addicted to computer games,” spending thousands of hours online before he bombed Norway’s government headquarters and gunned down Labour Party summer campers. Newspaper Aftenposten reported that coppers have found logs indicating that Breivik spent even more time on computer games than he’d admitted.

He told coppers that he spent around 8,700 hours playing the games between 2006 and 2010. Police found that between November 2010 and April 2011, Breivik spent 500 hours playing “World of Warcraft” alone.

The mass murderers games of choice included “Modern Warfare,” “Elder scrolls,” “Dragon Age” and “Warhammer.” He told police that playing games was “camouflage” for planning his terrorist attacks, and that to “reward” himself, he decided to devote most of an entire year to them. Cops think he played WoW up to 12 hours a day over a two-year period.

The Swedes are frantically looking around to see what could have turned Breivik into a psycho and are looking at the games. Breivik has used terminology from WoW in his “manifesto.”
