Actually, I’m kind of surprised that there aren’t more deaths caused by compulsive gaming. Just like anything else, you can become completely addicted to games if you’re not careful. That’s something that potentially led to the death of a Chinese man, who dropped dead during a marathon gaming session.
MMORPGs and other kinds of online games can take over your life, if you’re not careful. Just like most things, there’s something to be said about moderation. In order to save his son from his growing gaming addiction, a father in China decided to take matters into his virtual hands – hiring some online hitmen to go after his son’s character.
It looks like South Koreans won’t be able to play video games during the wee hours of the night. There is going to be an enforced ban, which will start at midnight.
The South Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has decided that gaming addiction has gotten to epic levels, so they will be enforcing a ban on online gamers, especially MMOs.
