    The kid would probably suffer severe withdrawl.

    This has happened with my friend...seriously, she shunned all of her friends to play world of warcraft ¬_¬

    This guy actually looks and sounds like me, only I spend most of my time web surfing, and I actually try to do well in school, as well as keep up a relationship with my parents even though I`m in my room for four hours straight. Sometimes though I deviate from my computer to go watch TV or eat something or read something. I`ve also never punched a hole in a wall if I get pwned.

    WoW sucks anyway. I hate RPGs that have assloads of stats that you have to manage. And the community`s probably full of lamers.

    canx the isp, discipline the kid & get over your self, my addiction is listening to insane humans trying to convince me their insanity is real

    now that another addition has been identified by insane people, i guess the opposite would be adhd

    Yet another thing for psyco kids to get addicted to. Sure it`s becoming more common, only because the game is so common, not because it inherrintly leads to addiction. I`m 20 years old and I`ve never been addicted to a videogame in my life.

    If it`s really gotten that bad to the point where the kid`s going to school, the mom should pull the computer plug cut it into pieces instead of just crying about it.

    I feel bad for people who play WoW....because of people like this kid who are addicted to it and I can`t help but think they give Wow players a bad name. I don`t play it but my older brother does and a few friends too...they`re not all crazy....right?

    Hm. I don`t approve of the idea that video games and movies making people want to shoot other people, but the kid needs a life. Most people like that do. Please, stop wasting your money on these games and GO GET A HOOKER, because people like that seriously need to get laid. K thanks.

    I`d rather not waste my money on a hooker, thanks. I`d rather get myself a real woman. And you do realize that simply "getting laid" doesn`t solve all of life`s problems for the average male.

    Not only is that mother letting him keep his computer, which I would not do, she`s paying for that account.
    It`s not his problem so much as her problem. Be a mother and take control of him - if he could handle all obstacles on his own at that age, there wouldn`t be much purpose for her, now would there?

    Okay, I don`t know what I would do if I were his mom, since he might get really violent if she stopped paying and took the computer away, I wouldn`t want to cause him to kill himself.. So I don`t know.. but his mom`s teeth are NAAASTAAAAAY. Gross.

    I agree that this kid is spending way too much time getting involved in a game, I don`t think that all mmo`s are bad. I think it`s depends on your own personality whether you`d get addicted or not. I`ve played Rose in the past and Maplestory now just to keep up with some old friends and relax after doing homework, but my brother has a very addictive personality and would become pretty bad, not as bad as this guy, but still.

    pfft, this was shown on a tv `news` program that will sue anyone/make anyones life miserable/blame computers/music/books for teen mood swings just to get good ratings.

    Sure, the kid has an addiction to a nerd-game. Why doesn`t she discuss it with her kid instead of the national over-dramatising program. Or, as some-one else suggested, just stop paying an force the kid to give it up. OR make the kid get a freakin job or go to TAFE or something worthwhile.

    Basically, this program shows only one side of this story.

    My brother is a bit like this, though no-where near as bad. At least he paid his WoW subscription himself, then he cancelled it cos he realised it was a load of $hite. No its Command and Conquer Something-or-other.

    How come more and more people are getting "addicted" to anything they can? Flaws in weak minded people too scared to get on with life. Its sad and pathetic that this guy can say hes addicted to a game, and have to agree with EDDY23, the mother should quit her attention seeking bithcing and ditch the kids PC. Problem solved

    This is stupid. Its like smoking? I`ll be laughing when they come out with an arm patch to help your body cope without having MMO`s.

    Parents should just step up and take some action. Look into what your child is doing. She could have prevented it all together if she used the built-in parental controls.

    What a shame that mom enables this kind of behavior. If my daughter decided to drop out of school, and not work to boot, she`d be finding that, amazingly, her computer time, phone time, TV time, music time (you know, anything that cost money or used electricity--other than the bare essentials) would be completely eliminated `til she earned enough money to pay for them herself or until she went back to school, which, at that bloke`s age, I reckon is his job. Oh, and, at 18, she`d find her ass on the curb, too, if those were her life choices. Taking responsiblity for our own actions is a dying concept, which is a shame. This mom wasn`t taking responsiblity for allowing his behavior to occur.

    What a shame.

    ebsha your so right.. this is a Perth program and its full of carp!! but it is true, this whole WoW thing and Runescape e.t.c it takes up peoples lives.. i have a group of friends and thats all their conversation consists of it, bores me to tears.. yet their parents pay for it.. infact most of them have parents who play.. and its stupid.
    I think its ok to play like 1hr a day or so thats fine. and the whole having friends in other countries.. that makes sence. we talk to our neightbours over email so what makes that more valid then talking to someone 1000 kms away by email...

    ok thats my rant over ;)

    Actually, truthfully, the kid doesn`t LOOK that bad off. His mom`s the one who looks like she needs to go outside and get some sunlight. Dear god what`s wrong with her teeth? Also, I think his mom should tell him to either go back to school or get a job to pay for his own WoW account. That drating woman needs to get a life and stop overreacting. At least he`s not out getting in trouble and experimenting with drugs.

    melly89 - there`s a TV show dedicated to Carp? The fish? Soz just joking!

    People are saying this can`t be an addiction because its not a physical fom, but people get addicted to gambling, so I suppose this would fall into the same box. When I were a kid though, I`d be forced into doing all my homework/chores etc. before Sonic The Hedgehog reared his spikey blue head!!!

    Btw, I`m not biased, I`ve been sober for 3 months :) Just hooked on I-A-B and webcomics and other computer games, and xbox, and gamecube, and the upcoming Wii launch, and working to get money for the upcoming Wii launch, and OH NOES! I`M ADDICTED TO THE INTERNETS!

    My brother is insainly addicted to it. He gets up, and starts playing. He doesnt stop unless his girlfriend (whom is also addicted and plays it) comes over. Then they lock their door and do gross things, and when thats over, they get on and start playing. All of his friends are addicted too. When they come over they take turns on the computer playing this stupid game! I tried playing but only got to level 13 before I realised it was stupid.

    A. Needs to grow up and drating beat the poo out of this kid to make him stop. If he`s being a dick and getting all violent over this, he deserves it
    B. Cut off the internet
    C. Break the computer and make him pay for it, if he plays 16 hours a day theres no way this kid has a job to pay for a new one.
    D. Make him shave, no one likes a dirtlip.

    Addiction to technology? We are all addicted to technology (that is those of us in industrialized countries). It`s not the game that is the problem, it is the kid`s behavior and the parent`s lack thereof.

    I`m sick of people blaming video games, tv, books, movie, etc. on their problems. As far as I`m concerned, the mother should take the computer fully out of the house, and take the kid to get help. Stop crying about it, it won`t get you anywhere.

    To the guy who said the guy just needs to get laid, it`s not that simple. My last boyfriend played up to 14 hours a day of RPGs, getting laid didn`t stop that.
    But he still wasn`t half as bad as this kid.

I had a friend through a game who stayed up for 2 days then slept for one lol, it sounded like a good system to me. anyway back on topic I don`t think playing for hours and hours on end is bad, but when you let it get in the way of school and life in general thats when its bad

    ok the mom needs to not go to freakin abc or whatever and go to like western psych for that kid seriously put him in WPIC he cant kill himself in there and he wont be playing that damn game though WoW is fun it really is too slow for me to play 16 hours also when kid gets out of rehab or wutever institution he goes on he needs weekel therapy then the mother should take the comp away say he get comp back when he go to school get internet and subscription back whne he gets a lif(job) and can pay for those utilities himself hopefully like the 2-4 weeks in an institution can break his addiction plus needing to pay fo it himself and sta good in school he wont be able to paly it as much and as soon as he lsoes job or grades slip mom goes bam computer away

    Man, I can`t stand this garbage.

    I have a girlfriend, a job, great friends and a close family. I live alone, in a nice apartment and I take care of my responsibilities.

    That being said, I went through my WOW addiction a while back. I played excessively. Why? Because it was fun. I enjoyed myself. Yes, I neglected certain things I shouldn`t have but I wasn`t enthralled to the point of losing more important things in my life.

    What really pisses me off is how stupid parents and the general population loves to dramatize things that they don`t understand. Do you think the mother has ever had a hobby or passion she invested hours on end in? I doubt it. Do you think the reporter, producer, editor or the entire god damn television network cares about whether this is a justifiable concern or not? No, but it gets ratings.

    It`s a hobby. Some people take it too seriously. Big surprise. People take a lot of hobbies too seriously.

    More importantly, a lot of hobbies are significantly more dangerous than online gaming addictions.

    And as far as the kid throwing his fist through a wall? Guess what mom, he has a bad temper. Online gaming is just a spark on an already short fuse. If he played basketball and took it seriously maybe he`d get into fights or throw the ball at some nine year old watching from the bleachers.

    And the crying? The famous camera zoom to capture the tears so whiny stupid housewives can have something to complain about at the next PTA event? Give me a break. Why are you crying? Because you suck as a parent? Because you enable his behavior?

    Hey, here`s a thought, maybe allowing a stupid 16 year old with a temper to make all of his own decisions is exactly why he`s where he is. Cry me a river lady.

    I hate network television, bad parents and bored kids with no motivation. Oh, and for the record, I don`t play WOW anymore.

    Ah yes, one more comment I feel obligated to make: some people do play these games dangerously. They get extremely addicted and neglect everything around them. That sucks, but unfortunately that`s the child / parent`s fault, not the scapegoat known as online gaming.

    Parents that sue game companies for their own idiocy and negligence should take a look in the mirror.

    And try to remember the term "get a life" is extremely insecure and subjective as well. What is a life exactly? Last time I checked everyone is living, and choosing what they want out of life in any given moment. Just because you like to massage jello with your penis in a dismal basement doesn`t mean you can accuse someone of not having a life because they like to make art out of candy.

(note that the pure pwnage thing is a fictional video series)

    LOOSE THE DAMN COMPUTER. parents act like they are helpless but they just dont want to do much about it. u let the kid sit there. he`s gonna sit there. but if you take control and make him get his ass up then he wont get "addicted".

    ^^ A big hand giving the finger...yes very cool.

    And why are people sticking up for this guy? Should a hobby make you put your fist through the wall? And when a kid can do that then the mother wouldn`t be able to take WoW away without being behind the full brunt of the fist herself with this guy`s temper.

    This "hobby" has blasted waaay out of all proportions. He talks all day to people he`ll never meet, gets angry when he dies (and if you can`t take that, you shouldn`t be playing) and has dropped out of school.

    And on a final note, this news program did some apparent "research" on WoW related incidents, but didn`t tell the mother about the parental limits that she could put in! I don`t blame the mother in any way, but no one is doing anything to help the guy by offering solutions, talking deeply to him etc. They just winge about the problems.

    I just hope Blizzard are happy rolling around in their beds of money.

I`m not even close to being addicted and people on this site would freak out like it`s a sin. You guys are really narrow minded and are only focusing on one problem and are arguing about WoW without ANY knowledge of anything about it. Seriously guys just stfu.

    And video gaming is sin! You kill the people and they resurrect and fight you again, only to be repeatedly killed! WHO COULD DEFILE GOD LIKE THIS!?

    Geez, all most people are saying is that this kid is screwed up, but other WoW players see that as an insult to them too and start ranting. Who`s narrow minded now eh?

    What a dumbass that kid is, it`s not an addiction, he doesn`t want to quit. I played that game since Beta till about 9 months ago, I had a life, I had friends, I had time for school sports and I still did very well in teh game, it`s all a matter of managing your time right and not being an idiot. Maybe I just dont have an addictive personality, I just didn`t play one day and never played again.

It`s not unusual for him to ask me to do his chores for him becuause there is "something important happening on World of Warcraft" lol.

    Personally, I think the kid needs to get off his ass and go benefit society. He`s the one who needs to learn self control. It isn`t his mom`s responsibility.

    no wonder he plays for sixteen hours a day, his house looks absolutely dismal.

    his violent attitude is related to his personality, and not specifically the game. i think there`s a strong hint of video-games-cause--violence propaganda here.

    well, i would just like to say for the record, i was a huge WoW and FFXI player. i spent almost 3 years playing between 2 to 12 hours a day. (depending on other factors like school, work, friends, having a "RL") so i would just like to say that there is a way to manage yourself on a mmo. this kid is just like a few of my in-game friends (funnily enough, most of the all day players i know are from austrailia. . .) it`s sad to see someone only spend time on a game. but you do have to know his guild probably means a lot to him. there are alot of people who have a hard time making friends face to face who need the veil of their lvl 52 black mage taru to talk to other people. not that i think this kid should keep playing 16 hours a day every day (did you see the bags under that kid`s eyes? sheesh.) but those are probably his closest friends and with them in another time zone he`s going to be on the computer funky times to be with them.

    "Dog bites man is common happening, but Man bites Dog is news!"

    There are plenty, if not a large majority of people who play WoW or other MMOs and lead perfectly normal lives. Ofcourse doing a news segement on "This is bob, hes perfectly normal" isnt as sensetionalist as "This is tim, HE plays a game for 40 hours a day, and has food being fed to him by his ass"

    Hehe hunie-bunie1 has the right idea, let`s go around people`s houses smashing up their PC so they can`t play WoW! Luddites forever!

    And for those who think it`s the mother`s fault...

    1) HAHA YOU IDIOTS!

    2) She`s probably not paying for it nor is she technologically knowledgeable to stop him from playing. Some people don`t even know how to use the internet, nevermind get rid of it. You probably are comparing this woman to your own mother - some overpowering, supreme, jugganaught of a woman who controls everything that goes on in the household. This just isn`t the case. No one would make a news program about person in a dilemma with the exact means and knowledge of how to solve it.

    But put it this way. Who`s addicted? The kid. SO IT`S HIS GOD DAMNED FAULT!

    I just got to say that I`ve played games (some violent) on playstation for a good 5-10 hours DAILY for weeks.

    Do I regret it? No. Was it an addiction? Temporarily. MY GAMES ENDED - they had levels. Was it an illness? NO.

    Is this boy`s SIXTEEN hours daily for MONTHS an illness? YES!!

    BTW: I`ve never heard of World Warcraft.

    But neways I agree with you people that are saying that his mom just needs to kick his ass. But the point is if you want children beaten you have to do it yourself.I play MMORPGS but im not stupid enough to play for 16 hrs a day. Granted that I like reality and dont nned to escape to some fantasy.Also I go to metal concerts more than i play video games.

    Sheesh. Why only blame one? It`s both their faults. The kid needs to do other activities besides WoW and he has to learn that there`s more to life than that. So, maybe he enjoys playing it. Fine. Just try to do other things besides, and cut down on game time. Not only that, the n00b needs to get back into school!

    About that Mother...all she has to do is pull the plug, basically. Like everyone else said. If he doesn`t have a job, he obviously isn`t paying for the subscription. So his Mom must be. All she`d have to do is cancel it. Ugh, this is what I`ve been talking about with MY Mom! People these days in the US are getting dumber with each passing minute. It`s really sad. You think people`d have more common sense nowadays.

    Retard me. Of course he enjoys playing the game.

    This is some disgusting crap. The "objective" journalism in this video is intended to frighten adults who lack a clear understanding of the nature of MMORPGS, thus creating fear. They do this to get ratings, not caring they may well start a morale-panic in the population that severly hurts the gaming community. For once, I`d like jouranlism to take a stand and just shut up until something comment worthy happens, instead of sensationalizing trivial crap like this. The kid is a minority. There are millions of people who play the game nicely. But no, the kid`s not a freak or merely poorly raised to prioritize his life, it`s a "pandemic" and the game`s an "addiction".
    God, the second they ban WoW I am hunting the mother, kid and the reporter down and horribly murdering them. ARG!

    Amen to Immigrant (apart from the killing bit lol). Todays society is all about fear, thats how they`re getting the masses to support Britain and the US invading Iraq. USA, i believe, is doing this in the EXTREME. Damn those simple minded sheep believing what they hear. I hate Tony Blair, Bush`s bitch. I also hate Bush, but I`m not American so I don`t have as much right to say that. Still. Don`t give into the FEAR. And don`t give into WOW either. Mini-rant over.

    I can`t help but laugh at all the comments calling the kid a "n00b". How in the holy flying hell is someone who plays WoW day in and day out new? And I didn`t see any n00bish behavior in the gameplay they showed. If your going to use a childish and nonsensical insult, at least use it properly.

    Ah! My brother is starting to act like this with xbox live. And 360. All he does is sleep, with the paddle in his hand, play the game, and eat while playing the game. His personality has changed too. Ah well. Hes also a school drop pout and hes 21 and still lives with his mom. I`m only 15 and have a job and a bank account but he has nothing- its a real confidence boost for people like me. XP
    Francesux:
    Haha fable rocks.

    This is actually funny. Just wait until his parents aren`t there to support him and his addictions anymore. ROFL! He needs to have the real world slammed into his face.
