Siberian man seeks 500,000 roubles from Bethesda for ‘emotional distress’ due to ‘Fallout 4’ addiction
A recent report published in the Russian-government-owned news publication RT has revealed that game developer Bethesda and its Russian localization crew are being sued by a Siberian man over his addition to the ‘Fallout 4’ game.
According to the RT report, a 28-year-old addicted ‘Fallout 4’ gamer from Krasnoyarsk is seeking a whopping amount of 500,000 roubles ($7,000) from Bethesda for ‘emotional distress’ caused by his addiction to the game.
In his accusations against Bethesda, the addicted gamer has said that the video game developer failed to warn that ‘Fallout 4’ would be “so addictive” that it could cost him his job and his wife, and would also take a toll on his health.
The unidentified ‘Fallout 4’ addict said in a statement that he downloaded the game on his PC after coming across an advertisement. He further added that when he gave the game a try, he initially played it for a couple of evenings; and, later, became so addicted to it that he completely abandoned his real life for the subsequent three weeks.
The man further added in his statement that, as a result of his three-week addiction to the ‘Fallout 4’ game, he got fired because he did not show up for work; and also ignored his friends and loved ones until his wife left him. He also said that his addiction to the game affected his health because he stopped sleeping or eating regularly.
