Man suing Bethesda after 'losing wife and job to Fallout 4 addiction'

'If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it'



A Russian man is reportedly suing Bethesda Game Studios, the development team behind Fallout 4, after he lost his job and wife as a result of playing the game for three weeks straight.

The unnamed 28-year-old man from Krasnoyarsk, in Siberia, wants 500,000 roubles (£4,730) in compensation because he did not know the game would "become so addictive".

He claims he repeatedly skipped work, which led to him being fired, and his wife left him. He says he also suffered health issues due to lack of sleep.

According to Russia Today, a statement from the man read: “If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays."

Russia has never before seen such a case, RT reports.

The law firm representing the man say they want to "see how far we can go regarding this case".
