Chinese father pushes son to kick gaming addiction by hiring virtual assassins to kill his MMO character

Chinese Father Gaming AddictionSkyrim Dark Brotherhood

It’s practically a cliché at this point: An angry father gets fed up with his lay about son playing video games all day instead of looking for a job. But Kotaku reports that one father in China went outside the box when thinking of ways to get his son off the computer: He hired a team of virtual assassins to repeatedly kill his son’s favorite character in a popular online role-playing game. According to Kotaku, 23-year-old Xiao Feng had been in and out of jobs for years while pointedly telling his father that he didn’t want to work for a living. Even after his father ruined his online gaming experience by having his character die numerous times, the defiant Feng told his father that he was still “not looking for any job” and that he wanted “to take some time to find one that suits me.” So let this be a lesson to all you crafty entrepreneurs out there thinking you can make a fortune by creating a virtual Dark Brotherhood to take out game addicts’ MMO characters: This sort of intervention apparently isn’t all that effective.
 
I'm sure there's going to be a movie based on this.
 
You die in the game, you die in real life...

wait a minute. That was already done.
 
What Movie was that? I only know Anime with that premise.
 
Why does it have to be a horror movie? :cmad:
 
Well, all the high level adult MMPORG players now have a potential extra source of income.
 
Oh, Asia. Your creativity looks like psychosis to the rest of us.
 
I find this.... admirable. :o
