i vaugly remember reading things about: in japan, 1. a guy getting so hooked on vf he starts to go there every day on his lunch break, and comes back late, eventually not going to work at all, just to play vf. eventually losing his job. 2. 'gangs' of people pooling their money together in order to buy their own arcade machine and playing it? 3. people stealing etc in order to get money to play. 4. some guy in japan or korea playing an rpg so much he stopped eating (to go on long binges of playing) and eventually died. this was in some newspaper. does anyone know what im talking about/have more stories on this kinda stuff? do they do this for other games over there or just vf?
