    Isn't this a bit too much? It has some sense, but it should not be for the Government to step in, more the parents. How can any Government have the right to do such things?

    the problem is, the parents are just as bad with gaming.
    to be honest, it should be regardless of age.

    also note that vietnam already has a similar system. (game rewards are reduced after several hours. like 3 hours=50% exp/drop rates, 5 hours=0%)

    most of the parents are also addicted to games, and they often don't know that their kid is playing online.

    remember the story about the parents that had a baby, and it died because they were playing computer games and feeding a baby in a virtual world? That's how bad it is.
