What's the furthest a parent has gone to get their kid to quit gaming? - Adhipics
A father, Mr. Feng, was tired of arguing with his son about his gaming. His son lacked ambition and was already 23 years old.

So he took the drastic step of finding professional gamers (World of Warcraft). And then hiring them, like bounty hunters, to find him in the game.

They then stalked his son and began killing him mercilessly in the game.
it didn’t result in his son quitting, unfortunately. But it was a good move of creativity on the dad’s part. (source: Gamers hired by father to 'kill' son in online games. Kleinman, Zoe)

Per gambling expert, Mark Griffiths, "I've never heard of that kind of intervention before, but I don't think these top-down approaches work. Most excessive game playing is usually a symptom of an underlying problem."
