Well, how *bleep*ing pointless. ;3
At least he didn't try to copy GTAIV and jump out of a helicopter, mid-flight into a swimming pool, although it would awesome if someone recorded and put it on youtube.

Honestly people, if you think your child is doing too much of anything that they may be addicted to, making them quit cold-turkey isn't a very good solution at all. I doubt many will kill themselves because of it, but it would be better to slowly limit the amount of time they can spend on the activity, until it is less of an addiction and more of a minor hobby.

What a moron.

I don't feel any sympathy for this kid, his priorities were fubar. Ah well, poor parents, even though their kid was an idiot.

His parent's failed. Addicts need to be weaned off of it. Not being thrown off cold turkey. This is a bit of the parent's fault, but mainly the kid's. I mean, killing yourself just because you can't play games anymore is pathetic. Go outside dammit.

Jesus, something must wrong with that boy!

That poor boy must also have had some psychological problems such as low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, loneliness, lack of affection from his parent etc. All of the aforementioned potential mental illnesses should be aware of by his parent before they ban him from playing videogames.

Kid must have had other numerous problems besides addiction if he could become addicted to something that has to physical withdrawal (just mental) effects like video games. x_x

I was about to commit suicide over games once, but instead I decided to go on a killing spree.

Actually I don't think this was too strange. If you're into video games and only video games, being banned from them would totally ruin your life, leaving you with only a horrible tedious hell of school, homework, and whatever else your parents force you into doing at home.

I mean for the ultimate nerd it's the equivalent of being grounded for ever.

I don't have much enjoyment in my life apart from games and TV, so I can see where he was coming from. His parents are dicks.
