I have no idea of who (if anyone) follows our TRAVEL page. Patti and I have made some firm (purchased tickets) travel plans for July. To see the latest just click onto the below link :
Back for a short re-visit to video game addictions.
Some of you may just ‘blow this issue off’ as no-big-deal.
OK. Read the below true story.
My Fiancee plays a game called ‘Lords Mobile’.
In the first month, she spent more that $20,000.00 on this game. She has now been playing this game for nearly 7 months. At this point she is nearly $65,000.00 in debt. She has been hiding the debt from me, until two weeks ago when I came across her Visa bill. I went through our bank records and I nearly threw up.
We are literally going to loose our house over this game. I am currently going to a debt consolidation agency to try and get the credit card debt under control.
I knew she had been playing this game obsessively for months (she sleeps with her phone, with the game running, in case her guild gets attacked), but I had absolutely no idea about the massive amounts of money she was paying for in-game purchases.
I am realizing this game has much more in common with online gambling than anything else.
The worst part is, despite all this – she *refuses* to stop playing the god-damn game.
I have given her until the end of this month to sell her IGG gaming account and quit – otherwise we are separating.
OK. So you still think that video game addiction is no-big-deal?
Anything that blows the life of real human beings to pieces is very serious.
