    Anyone else find it wrong that they have an ad for the new Call of Duty game on the page?

    Reminds me of that kid who hanged himself over not being able to play on his Wii.

    Even though I used to play a lot, I never went that far.... I would just simply disconnect my system and say to myself that I can play it later....

    And now I hardly play my game consoles at all.

    Yeah, I play my games far too much (as I'm sure most do), but I wouldn't do that. I wouldn't put it past my brother though, he has some pretty fierce tantrums when his laptop is taken off him (and he's 14 as well :\).
    Still, that's ridiculous, how could the games have caused him to steal stuff and bunk off school? Hm, he could've been playing online with some rough types, or games have a far more profound psychological effect than we think.
    Still, I think this highlights the fact that games can be dangerous if the person playing them can't handle them.

    Is there any way we can confirm this is a legit story, like whether it has been printed in newspapers or something. It almost seems like its simply a ploy to advertise the new Call of Duty game.

    Well, I think Yahoo is legit enough to post news that isn't completely fabricated. And who the hell would buy Call of Duty: WaW for their kid if they think they will get addicted to video games?

    Yea this article is legit; No reason for them to lie about this. I think games have a profound effect on people when you put it on the level of competition.
