Gaming addict in win over video game lawyers Read

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

Games 1

An anonymous reader writes "Once there are clinics for an addiction, it must be real.
And so it seems to be with video games. Once doctors declared that "World of Warcraft" was "the crack cocaine of gaming," everyone seemed to accept that gaming addiction was yet another human frailty.
Yet gaming companies chose to protect themselves with an end-user agreement that limited their own liability in creating something that might get others hooked.
However, Craig Smallwood, a Hawaii man who claims to be hooked on "Lineage II," has succeeded in the first round of what might be a long bout in challenging an end-user agreement."
