What's This?

Fallout 4 may be one of the bestselling games of 2015. But for one Fallout 4 player, the game took away his job and his wife.


Gaming can become quite an addiction. Real-life responsibilities may be affected. This was the case for a Russian man from Krasnoyarsk. The game became an addiction, so much so that he ignored his job, his wife and his children.

In the rage caused by losing everything that mattered, the Fallout 4 player sued Bethesda for $7,000 dollars after he lost his job and his wife. The player was so engrossed in the game that he ignored everything in else in his life. The wife of the Russian gamer asked for a divorce. Instead of dealing with the issue to avoid the consequences, he was pushed towards the game due to his instincts. He is now coming to terms with his addiction, and he now wants Bethesda to pay him the money for his loss.

According to the Fallout 4 player, the company shall put a warning saying that playing the game can be addictive. He said that if he knew the addictive nature of the game, he would have waited till holidays to try it out.

The statement reads, 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.” According to the lawsuit, the player was engrossed for three weeks, much more than the holiday period. However, there are so many players who play the game on a regular basis and still don’t get engrossed.

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the game from the time it was announced. One Fallout 4 player can never hamper the image of the game in question.
