In the latest saga over online gaming addiction in China, the parents of a 13-year-old Tianjin boy are suing the makers of World of Warcraft, blaming the game for the death of their son, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

The parents filed a suit against Blizzard Entertainment on Wednesday, saying their son jumped to his death while reenacting a scene from the game, the report said.

The parents are backed by the anti-Internet addiction advocate Zhang Chunliang. Mr. Chunliang has spoken to 63 parents whose children have allegedly suffered from online gaming addiction and plans to file a class-action suit, according to the report.

I couldn't agree more with ya m8. This sueing attitude sux. If the parents can't protect their childern, then they are to blame. I guess they wanna clear themselves of the guilts by blaming someone else for their failure as parents....

Flammable,

    Just a "suggestion" but you perhaps might want to use "proper english", I understand you just fine, but remember, there are ALOT of different cultures here, that already have a hard time with english, much less converting what you are typing to english.... (not derogatory, just a thought)

ok so one kid goes crazy one kid!!! see they would have the right to sue if more then like 100 kids did it because then everyone would know it would have somthing to do with the game but hey if they lett there kids go play on cliffs then maybe they should jump off the edge with them because anyone who cant watch there kid or notice a behavioral change shouldent be sueing i mean i would be pised if my kid jumped off the edge off a cliff and so would any of u but still its not like the game got up and pushed him off. bring your game on the edge of a cluff with you and tell them to push you off go ahead its not going to do it so if there get is psyco enough to re-nact it maybe its good one less weirdo insane kid is gone. but i dont mean that im sure the kid was cool but he had to have had some problems.
