    I think the whole thing is blown way out of proportion and I actually laughed at some parts like when the mom started crying. 6 to 8 hours? Pshh that's nothing my brother easily plays at least 12 hours a day on Halo 2.

    I've pulled a few all nighters playing video games too but there are also times when days go by when I don't play at all. Also the part about the 13 yr old killing himself was either bullshit or he was mentally ill.

    Woah, I played WoW before. It's pretty good, but it's not THAT good. I mean, the longest I've ever played a game in one day is about 6 hours. 12 hours is just insane.

    That shit is too funny. Though it isn't the game it is the person if he had a stable life he wouldn't be like that.

    Wow, that is an extreme to quit school or not even work just for a video game. 16 hours is alot, even if someone can do it on a weekend.

    Although being a bit rude I find it amusing that the parents seem to let this continue, especially that mother. I think a more caring parent would take more assertive actions to help their son/daughter out of a rut like this. :notrust

    Makes me question either the video or just the parents. :notrust

    Jeez, its just a game, if he wants to play, let him play it, if he chooses to ruin his life over it, let him, I dont play WOW and i dont intend to (dont like RPGs) The people who get addicted to it, are the weak-minded people who need an escape, and they choose WoW, if WoW didnt exist, they would choose something else like Drugs or another MORPG like Guild Wars.

    i was addicted to aoe2 once, played over 12 hours a lot during the summer. ^^. I did take breaks in between. Damn though, that kid is nuts. I would never quit school for a game. I guess it's a lot of pressure for him to run his guild. I wish i can play that game though :-). A friend at worked offered to buy it for me and will pay for monthly fees. I wasnt sure if he was kidding or not.. he looked seriously. I would have accepted though :-).

    Poor kid in China lol. They take rpg way to seriously in Asian countries. 36 Hours if insane. When i stay up for a long ass time, i start to feel dizzy and weird. but damn lmfao, all cause he wanted to Join a clan called Heroes? unbelievable.

    Nope, that'll lead to more problems. It's like taking away a coke-addict's coke. It'll just make them turn on you and repeatedly beat the shit out of you.

    My kids beat me? :laugh Me beat my parents? :laugh my dad would straight out beat my down with his fists my mum would probably stab me if I hit her.

    And also I wouldn't take it from him at that stage, I would take it away when I realise him not leaving his room, or skipping out on his social life.

    I don't know your situation, but just take the situation involving that particular mother and it's pretty likely.

    I use to be addicted to WoW. My best was like 8-10 hours on most days, but it didn't got to the point where I didn't go out chill with my friends, girlfriend, and party. It did however lower my grades, but it was senior year and I could careless about school. I just had lots and lots of fun during senior year, and yea WoW was part of that fun.

    Speaking of which, I plan to get back when Burning Crusade comes out.

    Speaking of play time, I think my peak was one game session of 14 hours. Didn't log off once during that whole session. Used to have a screenshot of the FuBar tooltip displaying the 14 hour session, but lost it somewhere along the way. The next morning when I woke up my eyes were very bloodshot and i felt quite like shit.

    summer + nothing better to do = bad

    Come to think of it, I think that the lag I get when I play is probably a GOOD thing, so I don't get addicted.

    you....you're kidding, right?

    Anyway, breaking the addiction is easy. You just need a short attention span...or a brother who keeps hogging the only fucking computer that has the game on it!!!

    I never saw the big deal with WoW. I mean, it was fun at first but even at the end of the first month, it got boring. I regret renewing it for another month.
