Anyone who’s played Fallout 4 knows that it’s the absolute tits, just like all the other Fallout games that came before it. It’s so awesome in fact that PornHub recorded a huge drop in traffic on the day it came out, and after all there aren’t many things in this world that mess with PornHub’s viewer stats.

As addictive as Fallout 4 is though, things like school, work, food and relationships must come first. Anyone with any semblance of responsibility and self-control knows that.
For one unnamed 28-year-old gamer in the Siberian town of Krasnoyarsk however, that’s easier said than done. He says he played Fallout for practically 3 weeks straight, an insane gaming binge that cost him his job, his wife and his health.
If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays.
The man is now suing Bethesda (the creators) for 500,000 rubles, which sounds a lot but is actually only £4,700.
I don’t think there’s ever been a case where someone has sued a video game for being “too addictive” and won, but considering that this dude isn’t really asking for much, who knows? They might actually pay up just so he can go away. In fact they might even be really happy to pay up because this guy’s story proves that Fallout is an excellent game. He’s basically telling them that they made the greatest game of all time, so great that forgot about working/eating/sleeping/his wife and practically ruined his life over it. That’s quite the compliment.
He could even use his winnings to hire a prostitute to team up with him for some multiplayer action? It’s all the rage in China.
