Can You Kick Your ‘Fallout 4’ Habit This New Year?

Huh. So this is 2016. So far, it's not looking all that different from 2015, but let's give it a chance. After all, it may superficially look the same, but maybe you're cruising into this spangly new year with a whole new outlook.

There are all kinds of habits you may have decided to kick, for instance. Drinking, smoking, boob-ogli… wait, scratch that last one. Maybe you're going to haul your saggy ass over to the gym every now and then. I know I've been promising myself that one since 2006 at least. But don't forget the most destructive habit of all: Fallout 4 addiction.

Russia isn't exactly the frivolous lawsuit capital of the world, but check this out: a Krasnoyarsk gamer is trying to sue Bethesda for failing to warn players how compulsive the game is. The Daily Mail reports that the 28-year-old is hoping for 500,000 roubles ($10,000, give or take) from the developer.

This poor bastard lost his job and his wife to Falloutitis, apparently. It's a sad story. A sad, sad situation, as some shit-tastic boyband or other once sang:

‘He first downloaded the game after seeing an advert and planned to spend just a few hours playing it over the coming days. Instead, he was catapulted into a downward spiral which saw him lock himself away, playing the game every day for weeks on end. After missing several days of work, he was fired from his job. Then his friends stopped hearing from him, he stopped sleeping and began to forget to eat. Eventually, his wife had had enough of him and she left.'

So there it is, The law firm representing this guy claim that they're going to take the case as far as they can; which I'll wager isn't very far. Still, Fallout 4 is a dangerous thing. Remember when it took down PornHub?
