Fallout 4 Player Sues Game Maker After Losing Wife and Job

Fallout 4If you need any evidence that video games are addictive and can potentially destroy your job and family, this man is your poster child. After losing his wife and job, he is now suing the game manufacturer.

Game Rant reports,

This player, a Russian man from Krasnoyarsk, became so enthralled with the world of Fallout 4 that he shunned all other considerations. He played Bethesda’s game almost exclusively, and in the process ignored his job, his wife, and his children.

Unsurprisingly, the Fallout 4 player’s addiction led to some serious real world consequences, including him losing his job and his wife requesting a divorce. Apparently, these developments didn’t do much to shake the addiction, though, and only further pushed the player into the game world.

Now, this Russian gamer, seemingly after being shaken from his post-apocalyptic stupor like some sort of Vault Dweller, is coming to terms with his addiction. But what’s he doing? He’s suing Bethesda for $7,000 dollars because he lost his wife and job.

He said he also stopped eating and sleeping  much, causing his health to deteriorate. In Fallout 4, players emerge from a bunker following a devastating nuclear holocaust to face a post-apocalyptic world. Curiously, his addiction to the game lasted just three weeks — in that short span of time he destroyed his life. This should be a lesson for every teenager who starts spending too much time playing video games. It will be revealing to see how his lawsuit ends up, these types of lawsuits are beginning to pop up more and more.
