No One Waited In Line For This

All you hardcore gamers (and Moms of hardcore gamers) please get a life. From a news story out of South Africa:

Sergio Rodriguez had been waiting outside the New York Circuit City store since Sunday for the midnight launch event, and he was the first to walk away with the PS3 as people still standing in line outside the store cheered.

"This is the best game ever. It's so worth the wait," the 25-year-old graphics designer said. "Some people may call me crazy, but I really love to play."

So this guy took an entire week off work to stand in line. Arrrrrgh. Yes, Sergio, you are crazy. And stupid. And thank you for showing the rest of the world how collectively stupid we as a country can be. I love gaming and have been known to kill Nazis late into the evening, but c'mon.

When did this start? Was it Cabbage Patch Dolls that began the whole camp out in line for a damn Christmas present craze or does it predate that?
