    I agree, the game companies might as well free themselves from lawsuits, and if labels will do it, by all means, go right ahead.

    Heh, I think that'd be a doozy on more than half. You obviously haven't seen the way we drive.

    At least I'm not the only one who thinks my country is full of idiots...

    Games to get warning labels?

    A lawsuit to be filed against Sony Online may encourage online game companies to label their games as addictive.

    Many game companies proudly claim that their games are "addictive," and a lawsuit to be filed against Sony Online may cause game companies to begin placing labels on games, warning consumers of just that.
    According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Miami lawyer Jack Thompson plans to file a lawsuit on behalf of Elizabeth Woolley, whose 21-year-old son Shawn killed himself last November. According to Woolley, Shawn had been playing EverQuest, Sony Online's popular online role-playing game, prior to his death. Though her son had been diagnosed with depression and a schizoid personality disorder, Woolley blames the addictive nature of the game for her son's death. The lawsuit will not specifically seek to require game companies to place warning labels on games, but Thompson believes that a large verdict may cause companies to label their games out of fiscal self-interest.

    Sony Online representatives declined to comment on the situation. We'll post more information about the situation as it develops.
    Hrmm.... Yeaaaah.. And the fact that I spent years playing: DOOM-DOOM2-Quake-Q2-Q3-.... Ah screw it - FPS games - had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I joined up for the Army. No really, I just LOVE the possibility that I may have to go out and shoot someone.

    I smell greed and bull****.. Not sure which is the stronger of the two.

    Some people will simply never see past themselves. :thumbs do

    However.. should I ever find a game with a label reading: "WARNING: MERELY TOUCHING THIS GAME WILL CAUSE MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF ADDICITON. PUTTING THIS GAME BACK ON THE SHELF WILL LIKEWISE CAUSE MASSIVE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS." I'm gonna BUY the thing and email them a letter of praise for one hell of a marketing strategy!

    Then again, that's just my two cents on the matter.

    This is actually quite scary :eek:

    One guy in our class is currently playing Warcraft 3 about 18 hours a day

    He plays until 3~4AM, then stumbles into class late (bringing his computer) and plays there! This is crazy!

    But I think any mature person can control their gaming sensibly :thumb:

    Serious?

    What a wanker.
    I couldnt stand War3 for 18minutes, let alone 18hours.

    Morrowind however, I could understand 18hour sessions with that game....

    Okay....that dude is nuts. I can play games, but not for hours on end without taking standup breaks, but I can still play it for awhile. I was playing Jedi Knight II for about 8 hrs the first day I got it, but that's an exception. Hell, sometimes I just like a round or two of good ol' Solitare.
