Fortunately, video gamers are mostly pretty bad at hunting things in the real world, and end up trying to work out how many skill points they need and discovering that pickpocketing police officers or walking into people's houses and takign their stuff "for the quest" has consequences.

Unfortunately, a handful that are aware of the consequences decide to take action anyway.

Fortunately, those ones mostly end up training themselves to a high standard in many things, and being put to use as a new force of heroes to protect the planet from EVIL DOOM.

Unfortunately whilst EVIL DOOM is busy being thwarted, some KITTEN DOOM is given leave to sneak in whilst nobody is paying attention. A post office in Harrogate is filled with cute fluffy kittens distracting the staff and rendering it completely inoperable.

Fortunately the post office in Harrogate, had it been operating, would have handled a pipe bomb intended to be sent to a primary school. As it was inoperable, the pipe bomb was left in the mail van for the night, ultimately obliterating the van but with no further casualties.

Unfortunately the van was also carrying a book about science headed to a scientist that would have told him how to complete his tricky experiments. As a result of not receiving the book the scientist tried to use guess work. This failed, and the experiments went wrong. Instead of inventing a top grade scientific discovery, he made a petri dish go poof in a puff of black smoke.  It left a sooty mark all over his face and moustache, and cracked a lens on his glasses

Fortunately, the cracked lens on his glasses implanted an idea into his mind and led to him realising something about the fundamental nature of Space and Time.

Unfortunately he did not write his realisation down before a mysterious space time event happens in his laboratory, causing him to never be seen again

Fortunately, this prevented him killing a butterfly in the palaeolithic which, had it not survived, would've led to the rise of an evil badger-mongoose overlord who would destroy human civilisation in 2021.
