The South Korean government is introducing policies aimed at curbing the amount of time children spend playing online games.

The first involves barring online gaming access to young people of school age between 12pm and 8am.

The other policy suggests slowing down people's internet connections after they have been logged on to certain games for a long period of time.

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.
