    Has anyone ever sued a maker of alcohol for being addicted to it and won?

    There actually is some legal basis for this regarding 'frivolous' lawsuits. Of course, frivolous being a somewhat subjective term. In England, the costs are generally assigned to losing party. In the US, generally costs are borne by each side. In Russia, I have no idea.

    I only know of 1 such case where a man filed suit against McDonalds due to his child's weight and the case was thrown out by the judge, citing the father as an unfit parent because he took his son to McDonalds for every meal he provided to the child.

    I finished it the other day and while it had a lot of depth i'd hardly call it addictive, I think WoW was more addictive and honestly I thought Fallout 4 was a little on the short side, I suppose they would have to run a study of games like this to find out just how addictive they are but since not everyone is wired the same how can anything be considered conclusive?

    I think as a rule tho just to protect their asses developers should include a health risk warning to let the few morons out there know that prolonged gaming sessions can be bad for you.

    My Pip-boy and I are out every night scavenging IRL. I found so many empty Coca and Pepsi cans. And beer cans too!

    This is my crib!

    This is actually becoming more common in the US with patent trolls so hopefully it will carry over to this type of nonsense lawsuit.
