It is our honor and our sacred duty to name the Video Game Of The Year Award for a fallen hero and much loved gamer. The First Annual Inquisitr Sean Smith Memorial Online Game Of The Year Award will be dedicated in perpetuity to Sean, who lost his life in the line of duty alongside three other brave Americans during the attack on the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
Sean Smith was an avid gamer and a leader of the EVE Online Community. He was actually in a chat with other Eve Online players when the first shots where fired on the Consulate. Sean was known to the gaming community as Vile Rat and these where the last words he spoke before rushing help his comrades. They are burned into my memory forever.
