Computer Games Kill People
From the Chosun Ilbo:
The recent deaths of several people directly or indirectly related to excessive playing of computer games have raised fresh concerns about Korea’s flourishing gaming industry. On Dec. 8, a 38-year-old man died suddenly after playing Internet games for 20 straight days at an Internet café, sustaining himself solely on instant noodles. On Nov. 20, a high school student died while playing online games for nine hours at home, adding his name to a bleak statistic that also includes the death on June 14 of a four-month-old infant who suffocated while her parents were out playing computer games.
I remember playing a few computer games when I was a teenager, but this is just one reason why the gaming options will be very limited in my house when I have teenagers (and PC rooms will be off-limits). Of course any parent who lets their teenager play for days on end should be held criminally responsible.
