I know, I know — this story “broke” nine or so days ago, and I meant to write about it then, but life happened (I dunno, Alistair became IRL and we made a billion babies or whatever) and I didn’t get around to it. BUT I’M GETTING AROUND TO IT NOW so brace thineself.
So. There’s a dude in Siberia. Dude in Sibera has a wife. He has a job, he has friends. He has a life. But then this 28-year-old dude picked up this little game (ha) titled Fallout 4. “I’ll just play on evenings!” he said. (Not really. Those are my words, but he apparently intended to only play for a few evenings which is BULLSHIT who buys Fallout 4 and is like, “Eh. Only a few days of this and I should be good.”)
Well his little idea of only playing on evenings turned into “RAAAHHHH I’M SO ADDICTED I’M GOING TO PLAY FOR THREE WEEKS STRAIGHT HOLY SHIT THIS GAME IS AMAZING FUCK MY FRIENDS FUCK MY WIFE FUCK EATING AND DRINKING FUCK MY JOB, I’M GONNA FALLOUT 4 UNTIL THE COWS COME HOME BABY!”
Seriously, guys. For three weeks, this is what went down: He stopped eating/drinking. He ignored his wife (who then left him). He forgot about his friends. He was fired from work. And now he’s suing Bethesda for (what roughly translates to US monies ) $7,000. He has a statement. It is below. Read it and laugh.
“If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays.”
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that is all.
ive never heard of this news story. this is real? some people in society are stupid. sadly that person probably did this suing in secrecy in between being stuck playing fallout so none of his friends or family (of what he has left) could even tell him how stupid this is.
I mean there is no way he’s going to win though right? lol
The game has nothing to do with your obsession and priorities in life. You can become distracted with anything and lose everything. You did it to yourself.
I always wonder what the mindset behind stuff like this is. What lawyer would take the case ? are they expecting bethseda to just settle out of court? How long would he have to wait till this goes to trail? Siberia? Wtf?
What I want to know is, how did he come back to reality?
