"Natural Born Killer", an experiment in virtual genocide, parts One, Two and Three.

Darkfall NERDRAGE

The gaming website Eurogamer posted a scathing review of the MMO Darkfall, yet the developers claim that the reviewer only played the game for two hours. Eurogamer refused to take down the review and became hated by the Darkfall community. This lead to what might be the most sublime nerdrage in the history of mankind.
