Real-Life Frogger Turns Bad

A 23-year-old in Clemson, S.C., was recently hospitalized because he was hit by an SUV attempting to play a real-life version of Frogger, a la Seinfeld. Click here to read the story.

I find this to be an unbelievable news story, but not because he got hit. What I want to know is, who are these 23 year olds who like Frogger? We see a lot of early 20 somethings walk through the door begging for directions to the Tekken and Street Fighter machines - to date, I've never seen one jonesing for a game of Frogger, or any classic game for that matter. They don't know what they're missing!
