Playing video games can be a serious addiction if not done in moderation. So what should a person do if his one and only son has this addiction to the point where he can't keep a job? Hire some in-game assassins to take him out?

Feng is a good father; he is the kind of man who wants the best for his beloved son, but when that son does nothing but play video games, then serious measures must be taken.

Feng's son, Xiao Feng, began his life of playing video games in high school. Due to this addiction, Feng's grades were terrible and after leaving high school, he could barely keep a job. He claimed that he just couldn't find that one job that he likes and even lacked the toughness to complete a three-month job at a software development company.

What is a father to do in such a situation? How about hiring in-game assassins to terrorize Xiao Feng's gaming life?

Xiao Feng's father came up with a brilliant idea that would see him go down a very dark path, a path that not even Darth Vader would attempt to travel. Feng located all of his son's favorite games. Upon doing so, he hired assassins from within these games to hunt his son down and kill him at every chance they get. Feng made sure these assassins were higher in rank than his son. So, naturally, his son stood no chance against them.

The idea was that after a while, Xiao Feng would get bored of playing over dying too many times and put more effort in getting a job. And the day came when Xiao Feng would confront his father about the assassins after being tired of dying every single time he logs into his favorite games.

Xiao Feng said to his father:

"I can play or I can not play, it doesn't bother me. I'm not looking for any job, I want to take some time to find one that suits me."

Because of what his son said, Feng was somewhat relieved and though unsure, called off his assassins. Many parents may need to resort to extreme tactics like this one if they want to set their children on the straight and narrow path of redemption.

Playing video games are a lot of fun, but if one does not take to the real world to enjoy what it has to offer, how fun can that life be? Food for thought.
