Teen attacks father in Fifa 2009 fight

Argument over 'non-violent videogame' prompts stabbing

Application security programs and practises

Critics often blame violent videogames when any youth who owns a console steals or stabs. But a teenager in Italy has proven that violent games aren’t always the driver for physical brutality.

The perhaps aptly-named Mario – aged 16 and from Rome – allegedly stabbed his father with a kitchen knife earlier this week following an argument about FIFA 2009.

Online reports said Mario’s 46-year-old father, Fabrizio, tried to offer his son advice on tactics to improve junior's gameplay.

Fabrizio switched the TV off in retaliation to his son’s response – 'Fu*k off, Dad,' perhaps? – which it seems prompted the youth to stab his father in the neck with a 15in knife snatched from the family kitchen.

In a scene reminiscent of the Scream movies, Mario then went back into the kitchen to clean the knife off, it's claimed.

The man is currently recovering in hospital. Mario’s mother - 46-year-old Monica – told a local newspaper: “We bought him FIFA 2009 because we didn't want him playing violent games." ®
