Remember that parody trailer ? Yeah, well, this is unfortunately very real.
This is due to his addiction to the acclaimed game, which he claims made him lose his job and wife. He's seeking 500,000 roubles (about $7,000) for his ills. The man said he originally only intended to play for "a couple of evenings" but then he started skipping work to play, which led to the loss of his job. Then, he stopped seeing his friends, his wife disappeared, and his health went into the tank:
"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."
RT says there has never been such a case in Russia and the man's representation says they want to "see how far" they can go with it. Yeah, well, refusing to take responsibility for one's own existence is a worldwide epidemic; why should it only infect Americans?
