Father hires hitmen to kill son's virtual character

How do you get your mooching kid to quit playing video games? A father in China came up with a clever solution. His son, 23-year-old Xiao Feng, scored poor grades in high school because of his gaming addiction, and things didn't get any better after he graduated and wouldn't stick with any jobs. So dad reportedly hired "virtual assassins" to kill Feng every time he logged in to his favorite online games, hoping it would compel his son to finally put down the controller. Feng was quoted as saying that he's not addicted to games — he just hasn't bothered getting a job yet because he's waiting for the right one to come along.

I was prepared to come in this thread with a "humanity is a lost cause" rant but in turn I am applauding the father's action.

Did the assassins succeed?

This is what the kid belive about real life and why he play online games.

I had bad luck at jobs, but still i belive that WOW is not going to solve my life.

Should have hired this fella instead

Nothing compels kids to put down the controller like being strangled with a fiber wire

Lol! The wording of the thread title was well played. I shook my head thinking this was real but, good for the father to get the son out of gaming.
