Some of us are content to throw our controllers or fling the disc across the room, but one Korean teen has dealt with his gaming frustration a little more .. . And by that I mean he burned a warehouse down. As is the done thing.

The 15-year-old lad had just experienced a frustrating bout of gaming at his local Internet café on Saturday evening, prompting him to respond by torching a warehouse situated atop a four-story building. He told police later that it was because "his videogame session did not go very well."

It is believe that over four million Korean won of damage was done. 

And that is what happens when we let teenagers play as the Pyro in Team Fortress 2.
