Other governments are taking an interest in MMORPGs as well. Players in South Korea have been prosecuted for stealing virtual property. More than half of the 40,000 computer crimes investigated by South Korea's National Police Agency in 2003 involved online games.


Seriously, WTF

I don't get it. Did they kill their characters and delete them, or just sit in Ironforge with DoT until they died and broadcast in a channel "WE ARE THE WARRIORS OF JUSTICE WATCH US DIE OH SHIT WE'RE NOT SPECIAL".

This is... I don't even know.

yeah that was just a little confusing as to what actualy happened, especialy the part that read "The players' digital representations martyred themselves; their fleshy masters kept breathing. These were virtual suicides in response to a crackdown in a virtual universe."

When I play games, the whole idea of me escaping to that world is to evade reality and just let myself go and have fun - I couldnt even imagine wanting to play if I can get arrested for having a murder charge brought on me for killing players in a pvp realm or having "a potion merchant suing for in-game slander". What fun will a game be if big brother is watching me?
