The story of the Duct-Tape LAN party ceiling gamer
The photo is ubiquitous. We've all seen it. The PC gamer playing CounterStrike while duct-taped to the ceiling. It perfectly captures the feeling of those early 2000s LAN parties when PC rigs were heavy, clunky, and space was at a premium.... and when we all had endless free time and help from our parents to have these crazy get-togethers.
Now, Kotaku has done the research and caught up with the dudes behind the magic photo. Turns out it was 2002 in Mason, MI, a small town where a group of gamer friends got together to play CS.
