    Video game addiction cure? Father hires online snipers to virtually kill son.

    the tale of a father whose unemployed 23-year-old son was allegedly devoting the bulk of his waking hours to an online war game. As the son's skills grew, he began to find that he could defeat almost all comers—until one day the young man found himself being cut down immediately every time he began the game. After a while, he began to suspect that something was up, and grilled his virtual assassins as to why they were targeting him. Eventually one let slip that he had been hired by the boy's father for just that purpose.

    Kotaku East explains:

    Unhappy with his son not finding a job, Feng decided to hire players in his son's favorite online games to hunt down Xiao Feng. It is unknown where or how Feng found the in-game assassins—every one of the players he hired were stronger and higher leveled than Xiao Feng. Feng's idea was that his son would get bored of playing games if he was killed every time he logged on, and that he would start putting more effort into getting a job.

    actually, this gives me an idea for a business.

    think of all the hours people put into this place, now imagine what it would be worth to your spouse to get you off of here and spending more time with them.

    hmm

    Like Father, like son. "The plot apparently failed, as Xiao Feng refused to stop playing the game." I am not surprised the son is a loser, feed the outrageous behavior hoping it will stop. Poor parenting.

    Take the fucking game away, kick the son's ass out of the fucking house and let him find out how to earn a living the hard way instead of babying the loafer.

    That's what I was just thinking. Kick him out onto the street.
