An anonymous reader writes “South Korean MMO game publisher NCsoft is finding itself facing another lawsuit, this time for making games that are ‘too addictive.’ US Lineage II player Craig Smallwood is suing the publisher for $3 million because he found himself playing Lineage II for 20,000 hours over a period of 5 years. At times, his average play session would persist for over 11 hours, crippling his life and ability to function. A federal judge is allowing the court case to go forward (PDF), stating that the plaintiff has a claim for negligence and gross negligence against the publisher.”
