    Sighs ... If you lost your "health, job and wife" after a only a three week Fallout 4 bender, you were probably on the verge of losing all those things already....

    Some people fall easier into addictions than others. I guess for that man if it wasn't Fallout 4 then it would be something else, maybe booze, maybe some other stuff. One episode doesn't make the case, the game would have to be deliverable produced to be addictive, like most MMO games are. Here he could easily make a 'save' and go to work or do what his wife asked him for, but he choose not to. Good luck with winning such case. And please stop drinking so much NukaCola. :D

    As in: the courts that actually should be locked away too... they are actually dangerous to the public.

    Pff, FO4 was a drag for me, granted I did clock in over 100 hours by the time I was, but it was more out of curiosity. Can't imagine how nuts one must be to get that "addicted" to it and then sue Bethesda. :giggle2:

    This some kind of sick joke? If this actually holds up, I have lost all faith in humanity... What kind of non-sense....I mean.... Why wouldn't this just be tossed aside?.... Who has time for this crap?

    Dumbest thing I've read today, possibly all year! Just sounds like he's looking to blame someone for his life being in the toilet right now instead of taking a long hard look at himself! Unfortunately the world is full of people whom just can't seem to assume responsibility for their own actions!

    He's not stupid, he thinks he is clever, trying to squeeze some money for himself. Can't blame him when you see all these ludicrous cases some people win.

    In a healthier society this person should be forced to visit a psychotherapist. Not for his Fallout "addiction" but for his paranoid demand! Laws and the constitution should be re written in every country closing all those "windows" that benefit the corrupt, thieves and crazy people. But as I said.. ideal society..

    That's not Bethesda's problem, or McDonalds, or beer companies, etc...

    A symptom of the times: some people actually grow up believing the falsehood that whatever they do that's wrong it's someone else's fault--and they are just helpless victims with no mind or volition, tossed about in the maelstrom of life. But of course, whenever they do something right that leads to a reward of some kind they have no trouble hogging all of the credit & responsibility...;)

    99.9% of such cases never make it to first base and are tossed out--but you only hear of the ones that win--like gambling in Vegas--for the 999,999 people who lose their shirts there, you only hear about the 1 who hits the slot-machine jackpot. Crackpots frequently seem to make the news these days.

    Used to be that kids were taught "you can do anything". Now its more like "you deserve everything".

    Pathetic. Like, the definition of it.

    Game isn't even that good anyway.
