If you want more evidence that Internet addiction is a real problem, look no further. I told you about one instance just yesterday, but when I read this story I was stunned, shocked and heartbroken because another young man in China is dead over video games.
Online gaming addict and 22-year-old Hsueh Jun-Chen was tucked inside his bedroom playing video games when his father Liu knocked on the door and told him it was time for bed, which is not what Hsueh wanted to hear.
The two got into an argument which eventually led the father to tell his son that he wanted him to stop playing video games. He told The Mirror:
I had simply said that he should sleep rather than play because university was starting again after the holidays. ... He said he would and that's the last time I saw him alive.
