It seems that addiction to online gaming is particularly bad in South Korea, so much so that the South Korean government has deemed it necessary to look into yet another act that would help deal with the issue of minors being addicted to online gaming at a young age.
Now we know that playing online games is fun, in fact we’re sure that many of us have lost countless hours to MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, Lineage, Guild Wars, etc. Heck, even non-MMORPGs such as Diablo, Starcraft, Quake, Counter-Strike, etc have been epic time wasters, so we guess we’re not surprised to hear that according to a report, the South Korean government is currently looking into an act that would ban online game accounts of minors that spend two hours consecutively, or three or more hours in a day on online games.
For those unfamiliar with such acts in South Korea, the government has passed acts in the past that have put curfews for minors for online gaming, where they would not be able to access their games from 10pm to 8am the next day. What do you guys think?
