Computer Game Craze: Man Marries GAME CHARACTER

Source: Lyn Multiplay

If you have ever thought that computer games might take a man into doing things that are nothing short of insanity, and often believed that cyber girlfriends, best mates or virtual pals are the worst of the lot, think again. A dude in Japan has just managed to outgun them in terms of virtual madness , with his latest act of absurdity. This Japanese dude, married a video game character. Yes you heard me right, he married a VIDEO GAME CHARACTER.

This momentous occasion happened in Japan quite recently. It took place during a Make: Japan meetup at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, whereby the groom who goes by nickname Sal9000, exchanged the wedding vow with Nene Anegasaki who is a character in a love sim game for Nintendo DS called Love Plus. Perhaps the alluring smile of Nene proved too hard for poor SA to resist?

The ceremony was conducted by a real human priest in front of real human audiences and was also broadcast live over the net through a popular Japanese video site. In case you wondering how real is this whole “marrying a video game characater” deal, check out the excellent video recap of the wedding ceremony and the couple’s post-wedding pictures. Ever wondered what must be going on in the minds of the real humans who bothered to attend? Your guess is as good as mine.

Of course we at Spotgamers do not condemn cyber marriage, we are just surprised at people being able to take computer games too far. This event leaves us with more questions than answers. Will the government actually legalise marriage to a game character? Would they legalise marriage to a beaver in the future if its allowed? How is the dude going to spend his nights? Would the parents of 'nene' approve of the marriage? Answers on a postcard to the blog please.
