Osama Bin Laden was apparently a gamer, pirated Final Fantasy 7, New Super Mario Bros, more

A terrorist leader that also pirated games.

It's not every day that you find out that one of the worst human beings to ever waste oxygen on planet Earth happened to enjoy video games. According to some recent documents released by the CIA, it turns out that Osama Bin Laden (or at least someone who used his computer) pirated games such as Final Fantasy 7 and the 3DS hit New Super Mario Bros. What's perhaps least shocking of all is that the mastermind behind 9/11 paid for literally none of these games.

According to a list that the CIA put together, Bin Laden also enjoyed animated movies such as Antz, Cars, Chicken Little, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. If you go through his file index and hit Control+F and type ".SAV", you'll run down all of the pirated DS games he played which also included Metroid Prime: Hunters, Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, Battles of Prince of Persia, and even Naruto: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 3.

It also comes as no surprise that Bin Laden was a bit of a narcissist, as some of his TV watching included, "Where in the World is Osama bin Laden," CNN's World's Most Wanted as well as their "In the Footsteps of bin Laden" special. To top it all off, he even indulged in a biography of himself.

What a guy.
