Let this be a lesson to all you programmers that make awesome games. There is always some person out there that will blame you for their tribulations. This is yet another good reason our court systems are flooded with time wasting cases today. Any judge in their right mind would toss this case out the window and at the very least have this person removed from the computer to seek professional psychological help.

"Craig Smallwood says he has played a total of 20,000 hours of Lineage II over a period of five years, from 2004 to 2009. Smallwood believes his addiction has affected his quality of life and alleges in the suit that he is "unable to function independently in usual daily activities such as getting up, getting dressed, bathing or communicating with family and friends." | More

Who the hell said Lineage II was a good game?!?!?! It sucked when it came out and it still sucks now. The person that made article should have thrown it out and not even wasted time on a crappy game like Lineage II.

What is "sou?" Um... Sue?

Ti-- Oh you've got to be kidding me. Tivon is not going to sue 3DGameMan.com. Don't you ever judge him by his post count. It's irrelevant. Get over it.

Oh, lawsuits from sue-happy gamers? Hilarious! Perfectly hilarious. :D

And thanks for the lighting fixture for the bathroom. I might buy something like this when I build a new house...NOT! :D
