Black hawk mines alarming report: “online gaming worsen”

A resposibility every gamer must take.

“We take responsibility in our action; things like this can be avoided if all gamers know their limit and how to make our hobby much fun and enjoyable”


From the words itself, addiction, imagine how bad can possibly be? Like many other addiction like alcoholic addiction and drug addiction, gaming addiction is as serious. Many have lost their jobs, their spouses and even their lives for playing online games. They are literally living in the virtual world.

In late July, a 21-year-old online-gaming addict was found dead in his home in Inchon, South Korea. He’d played intensely since graduating from high school, rarely sleeping or leaving his room, according to family members. In 2005 a 28-year-old man collapsed and died from organ failure after playing for 50 hours straight. He had apparently just lost his job because of his online-gaming habit. Both incidents prime suspect is online gaming.
A gaming shutdown law is now being implemented in Korea where it aims to demolish the addiction.

The country thought of another strategy to abolish the online game addiction or at least lessen it. “Cooling Off” system is introduced; this is to regulate the students of the amount of time they spend in playing online games within the 24 hours. Soon the video games addicts in South Korea will have limited hours to play online games.

The newest strategy of Korea is this new law where allow parents to communicate with online game providers and set time limits for their children's online gaming. This comes as South Korea struggles to deal with rampant Internet addiction among young people in South Korea. And only shows how serious this online games addiction truly is. Online game addiction is not a laughing matter; it is as deadly as alcohol and drug addiction.

This is really alarming. This is another reason why technology is not as good as we think it is more especially for kids. In terms of age, younger and younger are being victimized by online game addiction.

Discipline please
Parents must teach their children from an early age so that they will not grow up undisciplined.

I agree with that, playing different online games, one must have sole responsibility on how they cope, comprehend and adopt the games itself. It must have only rely on virtual character when playing online, and these characters must only be used for as certain purpose and not to acquire new ideas in using it out from certain boundaries. Everything, needs to have limit, That is why, even I recommended my kids to a site that have educational and fun games to play like at online zombie arcade games, I still let them know their limitations.
